A raid the fridge/cupboards dinner: Got in from work late and had nothing in the house ready prepared, but put together some spaghetti, fried sliced garlic, black olives, capers, tomatoes and chopped coriander you've got a quick and tasty meal! There's some Aleppo pepper and smoked paprika in there for extra flavour. Apologies to the Italians for what I've done to your food :D

Desperation dinner!
I'm working a seven day stretch and as I've been getting in late I haven't had a chance to do any cooking (yeah... I know you can knock together meals in 15 minutes but at 9:30 in the evening it's easier to open a can of soup!) And and as I'm working early shift nowhere is open to grab a sandwich for lunch, so what to do? Couscous is the answer! I mixed some couscous with seasoning, dried vegetables, olives and a handful of nuts. Just add hot water et voilà lunch is served! Reasonably healthy and much better than a noodle pot! I'll add the tomato as well, if I had some feta then that would go in as well... #Vegetarian #Vegan #NorthAfricanFood #MiddleEasternFood #BarecupboardCooking #Couscous #كسكس #Kosksi #WorkLunch #DeskLunch #QuickAndEasy #Cashews #Tomato #BagsOfYum #ShiftWork #PackedLunch #LunchBox #NoWeekendTillMonday

Georgian style walnut and coriander paste.
I've wandered off the traditional road slightly with this, it should be 100% walnuts but I only had a few left, so bulked it out with some hazelnuts and pumpkin seeds. The recipe is so easy, and unbelievably tasty: Blitz a large bunch of coriander in a blender and add 2 handfuls of walnuts (or mixed nuts) and grind to a paste. To this add olive oil, a dash of pomegranate molasses (or grape syrup/ pekmez), as much crushed garlic as you think appropriate (at least 2 cloves) salt to taste and a good heaped tablespoon of khmeli suneli. If you can't find this ubiquitous Georgian spice mix you can approximate with ground cumin and coriander seeds and some mild curry powder (it's the fenugreek that gives it flavour). Leave for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavours to mingle. It's spread on slices of fried or grilled aubergines which are then rolled up, but I guarantee you'll be eating spoonfuls of the stuff straight from the bowl!

Dimly lit dinner!
Unfortunately taking decent food photos in the evening is nigh on impossible in the winter as it gets dark so early. You'll have to take my word that this leftover feteer meshaltet stuffed with feta and green olives is tastier than it looks! Paired with whatever I could find (a baked potato, a couple of almost expired tomatoes and a dill pickle) it makes for a super quick meal as it's the Great British Bake Off final tonight so I'm getting ready for an evening on the sofa 😎

It's a what's in the fridge sort of dinner tonight as I get ready to pack up my kitchen in preparation for moving next week. Turns out I had a pretty good combination of stuff to hand so I made this dish of chorizo, shallot, chilli, garlic, capers, waxy new potatoes, fresh peas and broad beans, finished with the last of my fresh herbs and some taleggio!

When the cupboard is bare 😬#beansandmash #vegan #barecupboardcooking #potatoes

Farfoucha: Super easy to prepare, this vegan Tunisian steamed couscous dish is perfect to make if you want a one pot meal that can take care of itself while you do other things! Made with fennel greens or carrot tops, I substituted dill As I had neither. I also added some potatoes and peas, tasty and filling though not so traditional in this dish. To prepare chop the veggies and add to a large bowl, stir in a handful or two of dry couscous. Mix with tomato paste, harissa, tabil (ground cumin, coriander and caraway), season to taste and mix well. Then put in a steamer. Some people layer the steamer with the fennel fronds, I just chopped them and mixed with the couscous. Steam for around an hour (check halfway through and fluff it up), or until the couscous and veggies are done 😎 #Vegetarian #Vegan #NorthAfricanFood #MiddleEasternFood #FoodPorn #TunisianFood #TunisianFoodies #CuisineTunisienne #Couscous #Koski #كسكس #Farfoucha #Fennel #Fenouil #QuickAndEasy #Harissa #Yum #FridgeRaiding #WhatsForDinner #HomeComing #BareCupboardCooking #SummerOnAPlate

Midnight cooking: Baked gnocchi with grilled peppers and olives. I'm on the late shift all weekend and I needed to sort out something to take in to work tomorrow and Sunday. I'm working a seven day stretch and just about exhausted all the leftovers in the fridge! For this fridge raiding meal I mixed gnocchi with leftover slata mechouia, tomato paste, spices and chopped olives. Topped with tomatoes and baked until golden brown then add cheese. Not the most inspiring of dishes but it'll be tasty enough ;)

Nothing in the house to eat? Nah... there's always something! 😎
A bit of a mishmash tonight, I'm dead on my feet and still have another 4 days to go before my 'weekend' (Monday and Tuesday) but figured if I had the energy to make something tonight then the leftovers will be perfect tomorrow. Cashew and tofu satay with rice noodles:
Fry thinly sliced onion and garlic with a teaspoon of cumin seeds. When softened I threw in a handful of cashews and some tofu that was languishing in the freezer. For veggies I added a couple of big spoonfuls of slata mechouia (Tunisian grilled pepper salad) For the sauce I mixed a tablespoon of peanut butter, a sachet of creamed coconut, a teaspoon of curry powder, another of turmeric and another of cumin. Thin it down with a little boiling water if needed and pour into the pan. Add a dash of soy sauce for seasoning and a drizzle of roasted sesame oil. It's served on some rice noodles with heaps of coriander and a sprinkling of onion seeds. On the plate and in my stomach in 10 minutes!

😍😋by @ahava_x : Mousaka: I've had a crazy busy week at work with some travelling so as a result my cupboards are a bit bare. And as I'm heading off to Tunisia in a couple of days I didn't want to do a big shop. Luckily I had enough in the cupboards to cook up a batch of Lebanese style mousaka (with an aubergine 'borrowed' from my mum 🍆). Onions, tomatoes, chickpeas and chunks of aubergine. Flavour comes from cumin, coriander, and caraway with smoked paprika and fiery harissa (okay, I admit the flavour profile is more North African than Middle Eastern!). Eaten in a sunbeam 😎

Improvised farfoucha! This Tunisian vegan couscous dish is traditionally prepared from fennel fronds or carrot tops, I had neither so substituted herbs. So easy to prepare, it's not fast food (takes an hour or so to cook) but once you've chopped the vegetables, mixed them with spices (see previous post for the ingredients), harissa, tomato paste and dried couscous you add it to a steamer and it will take care of itself! Deliciously different :))

Flights booked, and off to Tunis in a couple of weeks! 😎 To celebrate a farfoucha inspired riot of colour ready for the steamer! The smell of this Tunisian steamed vegan couscous dish is indescribable... There is something about the combination of spices (see previous post for the recipe) that makes my mind go "Yes!!!" I had no fennel so authenticity is lacking, but for an improvised fridge raiding meal it's a tasty effort :)

Meat (less) balls and spaghetti, or repurposing food ;)) I got in from work late and really didn't fancy cooking, I also had pretty bare cupboards as I'll not get a chance to stock up until tomorrow night. So what's a hungry gal to do? I made a very quick tomato sauce - I say very it was basically passata, olives, allspice, cumin and a dash of balsamic vinegar. If I had time, inclination, garlic and onions I would have cooked a proper sauce. Served with my black bean falafel-esque burgers, chopped parsley, chilli flakes and some grated cheese it makes a super quick evening meal. Will definitely make this again, though more carefully and pimped up! #Vegetarian #Vegan (without the cheese) #FusionFood #MiddleEasternFlavours #ItalianFood #Pasta #Spaghetti #MeatlessBalls #BeanBurger #BlackBeans #Pulses #VeggieBurger #TomatoSauce #WhatsForDinner #Leftovers #Thrifty #QuickAndTasty #BareCupboardCooking

Aubergine, ricotta and caramelised onion filled baked kibbeh cooling on the windowsill. The filling is sandwiched between two layers of bulgar wheat and baked (Inspired by the meat filled kibbeh bil sanieh). I added some chickpea flour to the bulgar wheat and spices to give it a falafel hint. Normally fine bulgar wheat is used, but I just used some regular cracked wheat, for added texture. It's traditionally topped with a geometric design, but I'm tired, so it's more rustic ;)

Breakfast/Dinner /Supper???
Nightshift finished, three hours sleep and I'm ready to face the daylight for a few hours before I crash! I was going to resort to store cupboard soup today, but after numerous cups of coffee decided to make something more wholesome instead. Dahl is always welcome at any time of day, this is a simple masoor dahl (red lentils) flavoured with coconut and whole toasted cumin seeds. Topped with a fiery onion, garlic and red chilli tarka it will be perfect scooped up with khoubz. Quick, easy, tasty and filling, perfect for those can't be bothered days...
