Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2010
So easy and yummy! I've never made lentils before, but I loved this recipe. Even my toddler loved it (shocking!). After seeing some other reviews, I decided to season the water. I didn't have cumin on hand, so I used a splash of taco seasoning (I know, doesn't exactly go with middle eastern food, but it worked). I also cooked in homemade chicken stock instead of water for flavor (and added health benefits). Topped with a dallop of plain yogurt and served it up for lunch w/ a side of steamed veggies. Will definitely made this one again (it makes a ton, so I had lots of leftovers. I will have to fry more onions, though, this definitely wasn't enough for us).

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
Great, fluffy wheat bread similar to white bread in texture. This is sweeter (I would call it "honey wheat"), so if you don't want a sweeter bread, I wouldn't recommend it. I halved the recipe and made one loaf. I used all wheat bread (wheat pastry bread), so I added gluten (4 tsp), since white flour contains gluten which helps bread rise, and yeast does not usually contain gluten on its own. I also used a bread machine for some of the work. The first "mixing" I did in the bread machine bowl by hand, after it rose for the half hour, I turned my bread maker on to "dough" to let it kneed and rise. I then took it out, put it in a greased pan, let it rise again, and baked it. Made an easy recipe even easier (and less messy). Next time, I will try using half stone ground wheat (more texture) and maybe adding some seeds or oats for even more texture.

Baba Ghanoush

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
Delicious and easy recipe...I used it as a dip w/ baby carrots and sliced cucumber. For those who don't have tahini: I didn't want to make a run to the store, so I ground sesame seeds into a powder in my coffee grinder and then mixed in olive oil until it was a syrupy texture. I substituted this for tahini...came out great!

Spicy Garlic Panini Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
Really simple way to spice up a sandwich. As per another reviewer, I only added half the garlic, and it was enough for me. I used it on a panini with whole wheat bread, sliced turkey, avocado, red onion, mozzarella cheese and tomato and it was delicious!
