Zaynab’s Sunday afternoon soup

You look at the ingredients and think … simple. And maybe you think … not special enough… well, then you’re wrong… Because this soup is extremely delicious. You hope there will be something left for later or for the next day… and that nobody will beat you to it… Because that would be … annoying… This is the soup Zaynab once made for us on a Sunday afternoon. We always remembered it and often long for it…

Spicy green olives in grilled peppers

These green olives are very tasty with a sauce of grilled peppers and rose harissa. The pickled lemons top it off. Really a very nice addition to your mezze or just as an appetizer of course.

Spicy Turmeric Cayenne Fenugreek Garlic Kohlrabi

Kohlrabi is a new discovery of mine. I love it. It’s grown around here and I buy it from locals. And this Dutch vegetable can certainly be prepared in an Arabic way. The proof is in the pudding and in this recipe. Deliciously spicy. And kohlrabi itself is also really great. And light. And nutritious.

Moroccan spicy heartwarming white beans

Heartwarming, I say this for a reason. On a chilly evening or perhaps just on a hot day, this is a heartwarming dish. The herbs make it a smashing dish. The combination of Ras el Hanout, Turmeric and Cumin…. and those in combination with the moisture of the tomatoes is incredibly tasty. And the taste continues to surprise you until the last spoonful. And it stays with you for a while.
