Only three ingredients stand between you and this super refreshing Bulgarian Shopska Salad: Tomato, cucumber and Bulgarian feta. Are you ready for the easiest, coolest, tastiest three ingredient salad in the world?
Bulgarian Shopska Salad SAVED OUR LIVES last summer…
Okay, maybe not literally. That’s a bit dramatic.
But pretty darn close.
Koshary is a super satisfying Egyptian lentil, pasta and rice street food dish that’s ready and waiting to feed your soul. Bursting with Middle Eastern spices, it’s an aromatic meal that you’ll want to devour every day of the week.
Hey guys, today we’re sharing a spicy little recipe widely considered to be the national dish of Egypt… so you can probably imagine our surprise when we discovered it in Japan. :O
Big thanks to the lovely Sara and Khlood, two incredible ladies from Cairo who were on a mission to study medicine in Osaka, for showing us this recipe.
Once they discovered our love for world food and new and exciting cuisines, they took some time out from their study to show us how to make their mothers’ favourite recipe for Koshary, aka Egyptian Lentil Rice Pasta.
Ditch the jars and get ready to whip up a batch of your very own Fresh Tomato Pasta Sauce From Scratch. It’s way easier than you might think, and WAY TASTIER too thanks to ripe red tomatoes and a hit of fresh basil. Serve over pasta as-is, or use as a base for other sauces, toppings or even slathered over your next homemade pizza.
Sarah’s birthday is coming up this week! Cue the cheesy grins. 😀 😀 😀
Since one day is never enough for a decent birthday (in my humble opinion 😛 ), our friends and I planned a few birthday surprises to kick things off a few days early.
And why not? Birthdays only come around once a year right?
This Burmese Green Tomato Salad is a simple and tasty little side dish packed with the flavours of Myanmar. Crunchy, zesty, bright and ready in minutes – this little crowd-pleaser is the perfect side salad for our Burmese Banquet.
Welcome to our third Burmese Food Week recipe – Burmese Green Tomato Salad.
Wednesday’s past and we’re ready to bring on the weekend. But instead of cracking out the snacks and wine let’s stick to our healthy food kick with this quick and easy Burmese Green Tomato Salad.
We loved seeing Su’s face light up as she talked about this recipe. In fact, she was so excited to share it with us at her cooking class that she asked one of her staff to run down to the local market to pick up some fresh green tomatoes – in the pouring rain might we add!
‘You need to pick up three things from the supermarket for tonight’s demonstration: Some pancetta, parmigiano cheese, and a good red wine. You can handle that right?’
Of course we can!
Off to the supermarket we go with Beppe, our host and friend based in San Dona di Piave, a small town outside of Venice, Italy.
A few quick nibbles of some sample cheese and prosciutto at the supermarket set our stomachs to rumbling in anticipation of the evening’s spaghetti fiesta.
