Mosakett Batinjan bil Lahmeh — Eggplants, tomatoes and peppers are at the heart of many wonderful Levantine dishes, and it’s extra special when made with just picked local vegetables from Chick-a-Biddy Acres CSA. A flavourful eggplant stew with tomatoes, peppers, cubes of local organic lamb and warm Arabic spices. Also available #vegan with chickpeas.
Mujaddarat — This staple dish of bulgur, lentils and onions is highly regarded for its nutritional value and health benefits. Brown lentils are boiled then bulgur is added to the broth; sliced onions are slowly caramelized in olive oil until crispy and then the flavoured oil is added to the lentil-bulgur mix. The finished dish is topped with the fried onions, and served with a garnish of fresh vegetables and a selection of pickles.
￼Salata Shamander — A colourful beet salad flavoured with a hint of chives and coriander and a generous handful of roughly chopped flat leave parsley.
Khyer Bil Laban — A creamy and cool cucumber, mint and yogurt salad ￼￼with a hint of garlic.
Qatayef — These sweet stuffed dumplings are a common sight throughout the Levant during the month of Ramadan. A yeasted batter is used to make small round pancakes which are filled with ricotta cheese and garnished with finely chopped pistachios before being drizzled in sweet rosewater syrup. Served with a selection of fresh fruit.
