Bulgur Pilaf

Bulgur Pilaf by Salad Foodie

Faster and easier to cook than rice, bulgur is a grain to consider for making pilaf. High in fiber and low in fat makes this side dish a healthful choice. Easily converts to vegetarian by omitting the chicken broth. (Medium to large grind bulgur will be best for this recipe.)

Eggplant Dip Recipe - Baba Ganoush

Eggplant Dip Recipe - Baba Ganoush by Sidrah

Baba Ganoush, a Middle Eastern eggplant dip, is very similar to hummus, except it is made with eggplant. If you like eggplants, like me, you will definitely make this a staple dish. I cook it often and use it as a dip (for snacks) or meals in between the main meals.

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…

Grilled Salmon & Butter Lettuce Salad with Pomegrante Molasses Dressing by Bob Vincent

This is a tasty main dish salad. The dish has Middle Eastern over tones but the the addition of avocado, enoki mushrooms and pea tendrils adds a bit of Fusion twist. Candied pecans and dried cherries add textural dimension to the tender butter…

Pita & Lavash Chips

Pita & Lavash Chips by Bob Vincent

These are quick and easy to make. They go well with Hummus as a snack or appetizer. Serve them along side Middle Eastern dishes to add some crunch to the meal. I used whole wheat from Trader Joe's but if you are able to make your own that would be even better. Using cooking spray to bind spices to the chips makes them low in…

Moist Dates Cake

Moist Dates Cake by Padma Priya Manikam

I'm living in the desert shores and why not bake a cake that has dates in it! This is a simple recipe that I came across but changed a little. It is not too sweet and works well with prunes too if you are not a big dates fan.

Moroccan Style Lamb with Eggplant

Moroccan Style Lamb with Eggplant by John Spottiswood

This is another great recipe from the best of the San Francisco Chronicle. The combination of the lamb and eggplant with the rich and wonderful lemon infused sauce is just amazing. Meaty lamb shanks or leg meat are cooked in aromatic liquid before being roasted over slices of eggplant. I think the original recipe over weighted the…
