Koftas are meatballs with spices and onions that are most popular in Southeast Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines. It is important to buy a fattier meat (whether it is lamb or beef) so they don’t get dried out in the oven. They will create a lot of liquid which is delicious and can be serve on top of rice, or dipped into with bread. I like to serve these with grilled bread and tachina but you can eat them on their own, with pasta, last minute into a tomato based soup, or with tomato sauce.
This is the easiest and most delicious way to make glazed salmon! You will make the recipe again and again because of the flavors and little prep and cleanup! If you like things spicy be sure to chop the chili pepper at the end, it add such incredible flavor! (If you like medium spicy, remove the seeds, and if you don’t like spicy at all, discard it after its cooked)
Tachina is so delicious and so good for you! It is rich in minerals and one of the best sources of calcium. Double or triple the recipe and have for the week! (Just keep in fridge and then bring to room temperature)
Lentils are high in protein and filling! This salad is so good leftover too. Feel free to add a leafy green and turn it into a lettuce salad too! Or add pulled chicken or fish and its a one dish dinner!
If you are a cilantro hater, make this anyways and just leave out the cilantro! If you are a cilantro lover, you don’t even need to remove the cilantro from its stems, just roughly chop it at the top part and embrace the stems!
