I really really like Tabbouleh Salad, truly, I do. I just don’t think it likes me back. A traditional Tabbouleh salad is made with either bulgur, or couscous, which, for those of you who didn’t know is also known as cracked wheat. Continue reading “Cauliflower Tabbouleh”

I had a salad in one of the hostels I stayed at in Guatemala which was owned by Israeli guys, and they had a chopped salad on their menu that tasted so fresh and I absolutely loved it. I had completely forgotten about it until a few weeks ago and I decide to search for ‘Israeli Salad’ on Pinterest.

Chimichuri is the perfect sauce to serve with your steak, lamb or even pork. I served this with a rack of lamb and it was delicious! I made this one with mint as it pairs well with lamb but you can use any fresh herb of your choice. Basil, cilantro, oregano, just experiment and find your favourite!
Don’t you love it when you can pretend to be a chef for one night and make something really high-end and fancy but yet is super easy to execute?
A rack of lamb is the perfect example of that. That is the beauty of a really good cut of meat, it doesn’t need to marinate or simmer for hours, nor does it require a ton of sauce, it’s just good on it’s own. Continue reading “Rack of Lamb with Mint Chimichuri”
This recipe was inspired by one of the most amazing salads I have ever had (in a restaurant). The place is called Olive & Gourmando, and is located downtown Montreal, near McGill University if I remember correctly, but don’t quote me on this. I try to make a point of visiting “La Belle Province” at least once every couple years, for one to see my family, but also to reconnect with my culture and most importantly, to eat.
