I care for my mother and cooking is part of that package – which I don’t mind. So every afternoon after work, I visit with her and help prepare her dinner. She’s always excited at the recipes I come up with, and the ones I find online where I add my own spin to the whole thing. Yesterday, while my head was spinning out of control, she asked about dinner and the quickest option I could come up with was a simple Cannellini bean dish which goes something like this – open two cans of beans. I use this one. Bring to a boil, add finally chopped parsley, and sliced green onions, olive oil and lemon juice to taste and serve with toasted pita bread. Simple and easy.
So today, I decided to expand on bean dish recipes since that is what we are having for dinner tonight.
And here’s another middle eastern product my family has used for decades – and I sort of giggle now when I see it popping up in restaurant menus and grocery stores – have you tried it? If not consider adding to your salad or fried eggs and even poached salmon. I haven’t yet come across anyone who doesn’t like the intense flavors of this amazing combination of spices (if you will)
