Hadia Lebanese Style Recipes

A Dish of Daily Life...Hadia’s cookbook not only has the traditional Lebanese recipes that you expect to find in Arabic restaurants, but also a variety of recipes inspired by her travels around the world. She even includes helpful information on spices commonly used in Middle Eastern recipes, as well as how to properly set a dinner table. For someone who doesn’t entertain often (and usually by the pool when she does), it’s a nice reference to have on hand. 

There are quite a few recipes in Hadia’s cookbook that I intend to try. I wanted to try the two I chose because they are both similar to Middle Eastern recipes that I make, and I enjoy trying new variations. I am so glad I did, because I found things about both versions that I loved. These are fantastic recipes! If you haven’t tried Arabic food, Hadia’s Middle Eastern recipes are an easy and delicious place to start. If you’re already a fan, then you’re going to LOVE this cookbook!

Lentils are a staple in our house…we eat them several times a month.  Hadia uses caramelized onions in her recipe, which I have never done before. But since making this a few weeks ago, I have started to add them to my regular recipe…they really add another dimension of flavor.

Hadia’s Mediterranean style green beans were also a huge hit…the slow cooking brings out such a delicious flavor. My kids have already requested them several times! I have to say they were simply amazing. This recipe is a definite keeper! Michelle Kantor Nahom
