Very Good 4.0/5

A healthy and filling middle eastern dip! Eat it as an appetizer or snack with some pita. Why buy your hummus ready made from the store, when you can make it yourself?

Kibbe nyee is a mixture of raw lamb, bulgar wheat & spices. It's traditionally eaten with pita bread & sliced onions, but I enjoy adding parsley & baba ganosh.

Healthy Lebanese Chicken and Beans Stew- Fasoulia b' djej
(no ratings)

A traditional dish, for all seasons. Fasoulia is a delicious bean dish bathed in a wonderfully delicious tomato sauce, made with either large white beans (Lima Beans, haricot beans, white kidney beans, Peruvian beans or cannellini beans).
Fasoulia b'lahem فاصوليا بلحم is a hearty and balanced meal very common in Lebanon and most of the surrounding Arab countries, particularly Syria and Palestine.
The traditional name is Fasoulia b'lahem يخنة الفاصوليا مع اللحم or simply فاصوليا بلحم because it is made with red meat. I used chicken for a healthier version. Chicken makes this dish less calories, less fat and less cholesterol. Beans has lots of fiber and very nutritious .
Beans stew with meat normally served over rice.

Fasoulia فاصوليا means beans and
Lahem لحم means meat in Arabic.
Fasoulia b'lahem literally means beans in meat (stew).

I like making vegetarian dishes through out the week, sometimes its tough to cook nice vegetarain meals, but I learned these from my mother and they taste very nice, also tomato paste and suace is rich with antioxidants that fight cancerous cells. My boy friend who grew up eating meat everyday loves it :)

Easy Lebanese Grape Leaves w/ Lamb or Lean Beef
Very Good 4.0/5
(1 rating)

A quick and less painless way to roll your own grape leaves for a light plentiful snack or appetizer! Rolling may take a while, but it's fun and worthwhile. This grape leaf recipe includes meat.
