Lebanese leftover Bowl

I love using leftovers to make lunch. It creates beautiful, colourful and tasteful Bowls.

At our house, we love making Lebanese mezze from scratch. I try to make a little more so I can use leftovers to build Buddha bowls the following days. We usually make hummus, tabouleh, baba ghanouj, shanklish, foul m’damme, labneh or tzaziki, lamb and/or chicken brochette.

Here, in this leftover bowl, I had some tabouleh, hummous and foul.

I first put some fresh spinach and then added the three leftovers. Then added homemade broccoli sprouts, an avocado, slices of black radish and drizzled cold press olive oil. Accompanied by my flax and sesame seeds crackers.

Here are the recipes for those three leftovers I had.

To make tabouleh, you need

250ml dry quinoa

1 large bunch parsley chopped (remove long stems)

80ml mint leaves chopped

250ml of grape or cherry tomatoes cut in half (optional)

¼ of a yellow or white onion finely diced

1 garlic clove minced

15ml olive oil

juice of one lemon

salt and pepper to taste

Make quinoa according to package instructions

While quinoa is cooking prepare rest of the ingredients in a bowl

When quinoa is finished cooking combine all ingredients together and stir

To make hummous, you need

450g cooked Chickpeas

2 cloves garlic, minced

7ml salt

75ml freshly squeezed lemon juice

65ml water or better, aquafaba

85 ml tahini, stirred well

65 ml extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for serving

Powdered sumac, optional

Place the chickpeas, garlic, and kosher salt in the bowl of a food processor. Process for 15 to 20 seconds. Stop, scrape down the sides of the bowl, and process for another 15 to 20 seconds. Add the lemon juice and water. Process for 20 seconds. Add the tahini. Process for 20 seconds, then scrape down the sides of the bowl. With the processor running, drizzle in the olive oil.

To serve, transfer the hummus to a bowl and drizzle with additional olive oil and sprinkle with sumac, to taste, if desired.

To make foul m’damme, you need

1 can of cooked beans/legumes (I like white beans)

1 onion

2 tomatoes

5ml salt

15ml of cumin powder

1/2 lemon

30ml of tahini (sesame purée)

30ml olive oil

Dice onion and tomatoes. Add salt, cumin, lemon juice, tahini over cooked and rinsed beans with tomatoes and onion. Mix all ingredients.

Serve in a bowl and drizzle extra olive oil.

Bon appétit!

Do you enjoy Lebanese food? Which ones?

Veggie Mash patties

Have you ever done anything with the vegetables you used for your broth?

I love knowing I’m not wasting anything! In that sens, I made these patties with broth leftover vegetables. They can also be used as a burger patty. They are quite tasteful because of added spices. Just mold into balls and then pat in the pan. Fry them for a falafel look alike.

This is what I did…

250 to 275g of broth leftover veggies

20 to 30g of coconut flour

30g of bread crumbs (gluten free or not!)

15ml of Italian spice mix

5ml of salt

1 egg

Start by purée the vegetables. Squeeze them as much as you can to get all the water/broth out. Otherwise, you will need more flour to absorb all moister.

Mix all ingredients.

Add oil to a frying pan on med high heat. When oil is ready, spoon the veggie mash into small patties and add them to the pan.

Let fry for a few minutes before turning them gently.

Serve with salad or whatever green vegetables you have on hand or serve them on a bun for a smooth veggie burger.

Bon appétit!
