Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Grilled harissa chicken with preserved lemon, barley couscous and herbs

    • memphiseat on February 06, 2024

      This was delicious. I purchased a big bag of barley couscous and was looking for recipes to use it. The ingredient listing wasn’t that precise but that did not present any real problems. Drizzled with some yogurt lemon sauce but otherwise prepared as written. Would definitely make again.

  • Roast cauliflower with chilli, garlic and thyme

    • Happykikkers on September 13, 2023

      It was fine, simple dish. I used dried thyme, so maybe using fresh thyme brings out the flavour more. Didn't really taste the balsamic, will be adding more next time.

  • Green gazpacho

    • inflytur on September 07, 2021

      A classic gazpacho recipe with the slight twist of selecting green or light colored versions of all the ingredients. I find the resulting color very appealing. Makes a single very large serving or multiple small glass appetizer servings.

  • Heritage tomato, pomegranate molasses and oregano salad

    • mjes on August 14, 2021

      This salad is as simple as the ingredients. I read the preface and added feta cheese and pita bread to call it a lunch. The pomegranate molasses is a brilliant counterpoint to the tomatoes.

  • Fluffy, American-style buttermilk pancakes

    • inflytur on September 07, 2021

      Nice diner-style pancakes. The recipe makes two servings. Warming the pancakes in a non-stick pan works best.
