Healthy Lebanese Chicken and Beans Stew- Fasoulia b' djej

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

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 ÝÇÕæáíÇ ÈáÍã 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 íÎäÉ ÇáÝÇÕæáíÇ ãÚ ÇááÍã or simply ÝÇÕæáíÇ ÈáÍã 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 ÝÇÕæáíÇ means beans and
Lahem áÍã means meat in Arabic.
Fasoulia b'lahem literally means beans in meat (stew).

Lebanese Garlic Dip

(no ratings)
Lebanese Garlic Dip

If you’ve ever been to Lebanese restaurants and fell in love with the white garlic dip that they usually offer with barbq’s or shish tawook (chicken kebobs), today is your day! This garlic dip is a favorite of ours and we just can’t have enough of it when it’s around. In Lebanon they call it “Toom” or “Toum” which literally means garlic. Different people do it differently, and a successful garlic dip has a creamy white texture with a beautiful aroma of garlic, and with a taste that is a perfect marriage of garlic and lemon juice.

The ingredients are simple: garlic, lemon juice, vegetarian oil, and salt. But if you ask any pro, the secret of its success is in the preparation! Traditionally, a garlic smasher (or garlic masher) made from wood has been used to make the garlic dip where the garlic and other components are crushed and mashed carefully and slowly. Today people are reaching similar results with the help of food processors if done carefully.

Lebanese Spicy Fish Recipe Samke Harra

(no ratings)
Lebanese Spicy Fish Recipe Samke Harra

Background: “Samke Harra” translated from Arabic into Hot or Spicy Fish is a popular specialty dish of the port city of Tripoli El-Mina, Lebanon. One specific restaurant I recall from childhood is “Abou Fadi” which carries the name of its old late owner who himself was a fisherman. Abou Fadi made the best Samke Harra sandwiches hands down at least back in the day, because he always used fresh fish! Today his place is called “Malak El Samkeh Harrah” which means the King of Spicy Fish and I heard that it’s run by his children. Fortunately we found this random youtube video about the restaurant for the curious…

Samke Harra is made of baked fish, a spicy tahini sauce and other spices and ingredients and can be eaten as a sandwich, or served in plates. It makes for a nice dinner if you have people over. Mom used to make it on special occasions when we had people over for dinner so it was a treat for us… We’ve tried eating Samkeh Harrah out in different places in Lebanon and outside of the country, and to be honest the best recipe ever was that of the people of Tripoli El-Mina so this is the one we’re going to feature today.

Easy to Make Lebanese Baklava Recipe

Baklava, aka Baklawa is a Middle-Eastern dessert whose origins may go as far back as B.C times to the Assyrian civilization. Through the centuries, many neighboring countries adopted the delicacy and created their own versions. Today there are dozens of types of “Baklava” grouped in Lebanese Cuisine under “Arabic Sweets”. In its basic form, Baklava is made of fillo dough, nuts, and sugar syrup and in this post, we’re going to feature a simple recipe of walnut Baklava “fingers.”Submitted by: LEBANESEKITCHEN

Lebanese Garlic Noodles Ingredients (4 servings)

I’ve been to many “garlic lovers” restaurants including the “Stinking Rose” in San Francisco. I savored many ethnic garlicky dishes at friends’ homes. However, so far I’ve never come across any dish with a richer and more intense garlic flavor than the Lebanese Home-Made Noodles and Potatoes With Garlic, aka, “Macaron bi Toom.” This is a traditional “villager” dish from the mountains of Lebanon that city dwellers tend to shy away from. I tell you though to heck with shyness, bring on the garlic man!!Submitted by: LEBANESEKITCHEN

Lebanese Nights, aka “Layali Lubnan” is an amazingly aromatic dessert that is quite refreshing in summer time.

Fattoush (Lebanese Bread Salad)

Fattoush is a popular salad, especially in Lebanon. The great thing about fattoush is that you can add and delete veggies from the recipe according to taste. Instead of pita bread, you can also use French or Italian bread but it will add additional calories. This makes a great side to any grilled meat Submitted by: JULWHEELER
