Easy Persian Rice in a Rice Cooker

Easy Persian Rice in a Rice Cooker by John Spottiswood

Admittedly, this doesn't capture the crunch outside of the normal method of making persian rice. But if you are just looking for a fluffy and buttery rice to serve with a stew or tagine, this works wonderfully and is super easy.

Homemade Grilled Flatbread

Homemade Grilled Flatbread by John Spottiswood

I couldn't find any authentic pita bread or other flat bread at my local grocery store, so I decided to try grilling my own. It turned out to be really fun and not too difficult. And the taste was amazing. The hardest part was rolling out the dough (I doubled the recipe). Fortunately, I was able to do that while watching a playoff…

Hummus & Greek Salad

Hummus & Greek Salad by Padma Priya Manikam

I decided to go healthy one night and went Arabic and Greek! Some of you may be familiar with hummus which is made from chick peas and the latter is pretty simple using feta cheese and lots of other fresh produce. Both are to be eaten with kubus (pita bread). The Greek salad was inspired by a book titled Vegetarian by Love Food.

Grilled Steak with Israeli - North African BBQ Rub

Grilled Steak with Israeli - North African BBQ Rub by John Spottiswood

Almost nothing tastes better on steak or lamb that is thick enough to slice than an Israeli or North African spice rub. I combined a bit of both in this rub, using the base from an Israeli Hawaij rub and adding coriander which is more commonly found in Moroccan rubs. The combination is phenomenal. You won't be disappointed!
