If you don’t already have a favorite fattoush salad, you need this fattoush with heirloom tomatoes in your life. It’s fresh, vibrant, and even fun. And for me, it’s quite comforting. I know, I know! Leafy salads aren’t usually thought of as comforting. But it is for me since fattoush is the first salad I ate as a child. And it’s the only one I actually liked until I was a teen and started to experiment with “diet” salads. (Yikes!)
I’m pretty sure I eat more hummus than anyone I know. It’s what I grab whenever I need a quick fix or if I need to get in a bit more plant protein. And while I adore traditional hummus, I do like to mix things up every once in a while. I happened to be out of chickpeas, but I had dried red lentils on hand. So, of course, that meant red lentil hummus for me. Other than the chickpea to lentil swap, I make it with basically the same ingredients as my classic version. Though I do punch up the lemon to brighten the flavor.
I have always loved huevos rancheros! I have also always adored Middle Eastern food! So, I decided to give huevos rancheros a Lebanese makeover in this lebanese breakfast scramble with pita chips. I also gave it a Jackie-approved boost of veggies, plus a kick of fun. All the ingredients are scrambled up in pan. Pops of pita chips create that fun as you rise and shine with a savory breakfast. Do enjoy it for breakfast or brunch … or whenever!
