I love this book. Tried some receipes and it was very tasty. Some needed modification of amount of ingredients. Eggplant with tomatoes and rice - Easy and very tasty, repeating this dish Msa'aa - this is my another favourite. But 200ml vegetable broth instead 100ml. Used Garam Masala + Cinnamon + Fenugreek when I didn't have Lebanese 7-spice, it worked.
These were also very nice dishes, Quinoa stuffed peppers Zucchini quinoa with halloumi Halloumi with Sumac and mint Roasted cauliflower with garlic-tahini dip (the amount of dip is too small for the amount of cauliflower) Lebanese vegan mousaka (too tomato taste, I reduced them a bit) Avocado tahini dip - 1 tsp honey is too sweet Vegetarian koftas
This is a really nice recipe book packed with recipes that use a variety of vegetables, grains, beans, herbs and spices to suit your tastes. I often find that when I make a recipe it needs tweaking at the end, adding salt, extra salad dressing, or more spices, but nearly every one of these recipes are perfect from the first time I make them, no adjusting necessary! I'm not vegan but I noticed that lots of recipes are vegan and substitutions are suggested when the recipe isn't vegan, which is a nice touch.
Beautiful book and amazing recipes, I can't wait to try them all. I love that the measurements are given in grams also and not just cups. Many of the recipes are either vegan or can be easily veganized.
My wife and I are new to Middle Eastern cooking but a trip to Dubai made us want to delve deeper. I tried the Lebnah and then Lebnah and this really worked. The wife's hummus was fresher and better than any shop bought. We have tried a few more recipes - mostly successfully. So very happy to get a better understanding of this understated but subtle cuisine.
A really great cook book full of pictures. Some drink recipes in the front. It tells you how to make a great Lebanese spice mix to be used in a lot of the dishes. None of the spices were unusual either, I happened to have all the seven spices in to make a batch. Great!
This is a must-have cookbook which is a welcomed addition to our collection of vegetarian cookbooks. There is a bewildering range of recipes that are well presented and easy to follow for even the most unadventurous cooks. The thing we liked most is that the ingredients are very easy to source. A fab buy!
This is a beautiful book. Beautifully presented with very appealing recipes. However I have made three dishes from it and they have been mediocre at best and one went straight in the bin. Can anyone suggest a recipe that I really should try.? I love food from the region so it's not that. I just seem to have chosen really bad recipes to try first....
