Ful Medames (Fava Bean Soup)
Ful Medames (Fava Bean stew) is a breakfast that is very popular in the middle east. I tend to make a soupier version and have it as my main meal because it is so delicious and hearty. Ful or Foul (pronounced fool) is a vegan, gluten free stew made up of Fava beans. On a recent trip to Saudi, it was served alongside the usual breads/eggs/fruits at breakfast daily. I have come across many variations of Ful and this version has become very popular in our home. You simply have to try it to understand why!
Chickpea, Sweet Potato and Halloumi wrap
This chickpea, sweet potato and halloumi wrap is so unbelievably delicious and light. The halloumi is meaty and the chickpeas are slightly crunchy and the sauce adds warmth.
My little sis is really into Japanese food. She mentioned a few dishes that she really loves to eat, so i began to do some research. As i was reading, i kept seeing something called ‘Nasu Dengaku’ or Miso Aubergine and i had to try it because I just love me some aubergines. I made it a few different ways and then came up with this method. I can just taste it now. Luckily i have some aubergines in the fridge yo. So i’m going to consider making this later on..
Black Bean Quesadillas with Avocado Dip
I love black bean quesadillas with avocado dip. Aka – A gorgeous mash up of beans, avocados and other awesome mexican flavours in a crispy tortilla shell.
Roast Red Pepper Quinoa with Chickpeas and Potatoes
I have been eating a lot of this roast red pepper quinoa with chickpeas and potatoes lately. It paved the way to my sugar free/dairy free/gluten free/everything free detox that came along right after this. I did actually roast the peppers with red onion myself one time but for ease, I think I prefer this method.
