MENU - February 26th

For this week's recipes, a little taste of the Middle East! Olive oil, salt, and pepper are the only additional ingredients you will need to have on hand. With our vegetarian meal this week (Mujadara), we have included ingredients and instructions for Lemon Potatoes as an accompaniment. While the Mujadara is perfectly satisfying to eat on its own, if you have the time to include the potatoes, you will be pleased. But just a heads up that it does take a little bit of creative juggling (and extra time) to do both. IF YOU ARE SHORT ON TIME, save the potatoes for another meal and just do the mujadara and yogurt sauce to keep the cook time down. The week's menu is below...  have a great week!

COOKING TIPS

Shakshuka is a classic breakfast from Israel with Libyan roots. We've swapped the eggs for grass-fed meatballs to make it a satisfying dinner. Mujadara is an earthy Lebanese dish, almost always vegetarian. Our local Lebanese restaurant, Epice, has a wonderful version on their menu, particularly served with a glass of red wine from Lebanon. But as you will see, it's easy to make at home and might just become a favorite dinner option since it's easily made with pantry staples.
