Happy Sunday! Here's a part two post featuring some more healthy Lebanese recipes from the blog. In our Healthy Recipes Part One post, we talked about loubieh bil zeit, tabouli, and cucumber and greek yogurt salad. Today I will share three more recipes from our blog to feature on our Healthy Recipes Part Two post! Enjoy! :)
The cool thing about hummus is it's super easy and quick to make. Chop up some veggies and pack them up with a bowl of hummus and you will have yourself a filling and healthy lunch or snack! Hummus is made mostly of chick peas, which are high in protein and also fiber (great for those looking to lose weight). Hummus also contains tahini, which is a paste made from toasted sesame seeds.
2. Eggplant M'nazleh (M'saka)
This is one of my favorites! This vegetarian dish is made of sautéed veggies and flavored with salt and pepper. All you need for Eggplant M'nazleh is a couple of eggplants, an onion, garlic cloves, tomatoes and olive oil. Make this a healthy and filling meal by serving it over brown rice. Yes please!
Refreshing and flavorful are just a couple of words to describe Fattoush! The only ingredient in fattoush that you have to watch out for is the toasted pita. In moderation though, the pita is what makes this salad filling and what gives it a great crunch! This salad also contains some cleansing ingredients like parsley and sumac. Yum!
