Two-Grain Vegetable Salad with Chickpeas and Feta

2-Grain Vegetable Salad with Chickpeas and Feta

“You want to make potato salad again?”, Mike asked me one day.

We were headed to a potluck pool party later that day and he was apparently sick of potato salad. (I can’t blame him though; I brought our favorite potato salad to three different parties in the past month! Truth be told, I’m a little sick of potato salad too.) (more…)

Middle Eastern Tahini, Date, and Cardamom Bulgur Wheat Breakfast Bake

In the Middle East Mother’s Day is in March.

Since my husband is – in some ways – quite a typical guy and tends to forget things like Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and dentist appointments, I make note of two Mother’s Day dates every year so that my sweet Syrian mother-in-law isn’t forgotten in March and my own mom isn’t forgotten in May.

This beautifully aromatic dish is something I’d happily serve to either of them for brunch on their special day. (more…)

Bulgur Wheat Salad with Pomegranate + Walnut

Friday, October 4th, 2013


The first time I made this salad was last summer for a cookout at my parents’ house before Mike and I left for Kuwait. I wanted to bring a hearty salad, and I was trying to clean out my pantry and fridge when I found a bag of bulgur wheat in the pantry and a bottle of pomegranate molasses in the fridge. For some reason I thought combining the two in one dish was the best idea ever.

As strange as this pairing might sound, it is pretty fantastic. (more…)

Mujaddara Burghul (And a HUGE Giveaway of My Cookbook + Prize Packs From Bob’s Red Mill!)

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

Photo (taken by yours truly) of Mujaddara Burghul from my cookbook, An Edible Mosaic: Middle Eastern Fare with Extraordinary Flair.

If you’re curious about Middle Eastern food and looking for a good recipe to start with, Mujaddara Burghul, otherwise known as Lentil & Bulgur Wheat Pilaf with Caramelized Onion, is the perfect dish.

It’s very healthy with lentils and whole-grain bulgur wheat as its main ingredients. (Since it’s a vegetarian meal, it’s easy on the wallet too!) It couldn’t be simpler to make…if making rice intimidates you, know that bulgur is much more forgiving than rice. And with caramelized onion and the perfect blend of spices, it’s incredibly flavorful.

Bean and Barley Salad {Vegan}

Bean and Barley Salad

I don’t know about you, but I prefer a romantic Valentine’s Day meal at home over a meal at most restaurants. That way you get to enjoy a quiet meal with your loved one in the comfort of your own home without any waiting or traveling…and I’m guessing the food is just as good (or better!). (more…)

Spinach & Bulgur Wheat Stuffed Red Peppers {Vegan}

Friday, December 9th, 2011

To everyone who took the time to read my last post, comment on it, send me an email, or message me on Facebook – thank you!  I was so nervous about publishing that post, but I can see that it was worth it.  Your kind thoughts, comments, and gestures mean the world to me.  XO, Faith

Moving on to some food…  ;)

About a month ago Mike asked me if I secretly became a vegetarian.  I had to laugh because I know what he’s talking about…but no, really I haven’t (I almost wish I could, but sometimes I just crave a good burger, you know?  Or roast chicken…mmm…).  But on a daily (or even weekly) basis, I do seem to be eating less and less meat.  (And that says a lot because I was never a huge meat eater to begin with; I could never just sit down and polish off a steak in one sitting…a couple bites and now we’re talking though.)

Fried Rice-Style Red Cabbage & Bulgur Wheat {With Fried Egg}

Saturday, September 17th, 2011

For some reason that I can’t quite comprehend, Mike doesn’t like Chinese food.  (Maybe I do understand a little…it seems to be he doesn’t care for any foods his mom didn’t make when he was growing up.  But I don’t think this theory is quite right either, because there are things he likes just fine – ahem, pizza and chocolate cheesecake – that he never had growing up in Syria.)  So, being just a little crafty, I had a trick up my sleeve for getting him to eat this Asian-inspired dish.

Meals in Minutes — Leftover Grilled Veggie & Bulgur Wheat Lunch

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

During the hottest part of summer, I find solace in things like cold showers, air conditioned coffee shops, and popsicles.  I barely feel like eating, let alone cooking, but since popsicles really don’t really qualify as a meal I make good use out of leftovers that can be eaten cold. (more…)
