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?

Paleo GF Bread

This is the best gluten free bread!

You can use it just as you would other breads; toasted, sandwiches, sweet or savoury toppings.

It keeps well on the counter for about a week. You can freeze it for a month. Then, slice it before for a more convenient use!

To make this great bread, you will need

200g almond meal

85g tapioca starch/arrowroot flour

30 ml flax meal

15ml chia seeds

5ml baking soda

Pinch of salt

3 eggs or egg replacement

60ml coconut milk

60ml coconut oil

15ml pure maple syrup

5ml apple cider vinegar

Preheat oven to 180º C and line a loaf tin with parchment paper or grease it with coconut oil.

Combine the dry ingredients together in one bowl and whisk the wet ingredients together in another bowl.

Combine both wet and dry ingredients together and pour into loaf tin.

Place the loaf tin in the oven for 30 to 40 mins or until golden brown on top and cooked through. (Test with a skewer).

Enjoy!

Coconut Yoghurt, fruits and nuts

This homemade coconut Yoghurt is topped with a banana, a mandarine, some pomegranate, soaked almonds, pecans, flax and hemps seeds and pumpkin spices.

Take a look here for more on the homemade coconut Yoghurt.

Soaked almonds get activated thus having more enzymes. They are easier to digest that way.

They also taste way better! With these fruits and spices, no need to add any sugar. It’s balance is perfect 👌
