Couscous Salad

After all the Eid feasts, I feel salads are much needed to detox. I was away in Beirut for Eid and the food was amazing, not counting all the sweets and all the nights spent dancing and drinking!

Now back to work and Dubai, it is time to get back into the kitchen to create healthier feasts! I’ve always liked a cooked grain or vegetable with my salad, so this and my lentil salad are my two faves 🙂

Homemade Naturally Sweetened Coconut Milk

Anyone who does not have dairy in their diet knows alternative milk can get pricey, especially if you want it to be naturally sweetened and organic. There has been a couple of recipe disasters before this but I have to say I found this to be the the easiest, creamiest and AND much cheaper than a store bought version, so definitely a win!

Also can you ever have enough coconut in your diet? or body? or face! Never.

Moghrabieh (Lebanese Couscous)

This dish would not be familiar to everyone, the closest thing it would resemble is a large grain couscous. This dish is quite popular in Beirut and always reminds me of my childhood. My mama spent the weekend with me so I asked her to make this dish with me and help me “veganize” it which surprisingly is not very hard at all 🙂
