Nothing hits the spot quite like it. Chicken soup: easy and simple but very delicious nonetheless. I add noodles to it for playfulness and to make it as filling for the tummy as it is for the soul. #chickensoup #comfortfood #soup #winterfood #food #foods #foodpic #foodpost #foodphoto #foodphotography #yum #yummy #delicious #tasty #dinner #lunch #foodism #instafood #foodstagram #homemade #homecooking #eeeeeats #foodie #londonfoodie #lovefood #onthetable #eattheworld #foodgasm #foodstyling #foodshare

My mandatory pumpkin post comes in the form of pumpkin kibbeh! Growing up, Halloween was never big in Lebanon but Kibbeh was. Called trick kibbeh (vague link to Halloween?) people who couldn’t afford meat replaced it with pumpkin. 100% vegan with simple ingredients. I replaced the traditional walnuts with pumpkin seeds to stay on brand and used dried barberries that give a very nice kick to the kibbeh!

I see your grilled vegetable salad and I raise you manori & bresaola! Quite time consuming but worth every minute. Dressing is olive oil, salt and pepper only!

Arancini bite balls, crunchy from the outside, indulgent and oozing with flavour from the inside.The tastiest way to repurpose leftover classical risotto bianco. Although usually served with marinara, I prefer them with homemade pesto. #arancini #risotto #italianfood #italiancuisine #leftovers #homemade #homechef #homecooked #food #foods #instafood #foodstagram #foodphoto #foodpic #foodphotography #lovefood #delicious #tasty #yum #yummy #getinmybelly #chefmode #foodism #lunch #dinner #instafoodie #everydayfood #onthetable #foodoftheday

These bad boys are a rare case of both good and healthy... Chicken lettuce wrap. Made famous by an international American - Chinese chain, they are addictive and fun to eat. #chickenwrap #healthy #cleaneating #healthyfood #food #foods #foodphotography #foodpic #foodphoto #delicious #tasty #yum #yummy #instafood #foodstagram #dinner #lunch #glutenfree #paleo #dairyfree #homemade #homecooked #homemadefood #chefmode #foodie #londonfoodie #foodism #lovefood #loveeating #lovecooking

This hazelnut & honey chicken was supposed to be oven baked but when my oven decided it’s taking the day off, I had to improvise and cooked it on the stove. More time consuming but ended with a delicious dish so didn’t mind the extra effort... #chicken #dinner #couscous #lunch #delicious #tasty #yum #yummy #homemade #homecooked #homecook #cooking #chefmode #instafood #foodstagram #foodpost #foodpic #foodphoto #foodphotography #eat #eeeeeats #foodie #londonfoodie #lovefood #loveeating #foods #onthetable #realfood #feedyoursoul #forkyeah

Pan cooked flat bread topped with labneh tzatziki, crushed chickpeas, tomato with a sprinkle of garlic, sumac and cumin. A @jj__mc @bonappetitmag inspired recipe combining glorious traditional Mediterranean tastes. #vegetarian #flatbread #mediterraneanfood #mediterraneancuisine #homemade #homecooked #homechef #bonappetitmag #foodphotography #foodphoto #foodpic #foodstagram #instafood #delicious #tasty #yum #yummy #foodstyling #dinner #getinmybelly #chefmode #onmytable #hereismyfood #foodlover #foodporn #feedyoursoul #foodie #londonfoodie #lovefood #loveeating

Whole baked cauliflower with cumin, ground coriander and garlic topped with parsley and pomegranate! I parboiled it before baking. A perfect healthy and easy snack. #cauliflower #snack #vegetarian #vegan #cooking #homecook #homemade #homecooking #foodpic #foodphotography #foodphoto #foodpost #instafood #foodstagram #yum #yummy #delicious #foodism #onthetable #lovefood #lovecooking #loveeating #eeeeeats #veggies #healthyfood #tasty #chefmode #getinmybelly #plantbased #healthy

Some of my favourite brunch and breakfast items on the plate. Baked spicy beans, quinoa, grilled tomato, avocado and labneh. For my guest, I replaced labneh with poached eggs. High in protein, vegetarian & gluten free. #breakfast #brunch #protein #vegetarian #homemade #homecook #chefmode #homechef #food #foods #foodstagram #instafood #foodpic #foodphoto #foodphotography #delicious #yum #yummy #tasty #onthetable #getinmybelly #foodgasm #lovecooking #lovefood #foodie #londonfoodie #protein #drool #hungry #eeeeeats

Inspired by a starter I had in Krakow. Bacon wrapped prunes on top of goat cheese. Simple, tasty and very easy to make. For an extra kick, add any fresh herbs you like, I went for thyme!. #bacon #prunes #appetiser #starter #snack #homemade #homecooked #homecook #homechef #delicious #tasty #yum #yummy #foodpost #foodphoto #foodphotography #foodpic #foodography #foodie #londonfoodie #instafood #foodstagram #foodism #eattheworld #realfood #foodshare #foodism #foodstyling #foodlover #loveeating

Once you try homemade fresh pasta, it’s very hard to go back to the store bought one. It’s also not half as hard as it looks. Homemade fresh spaghetti with salmon, cream cheese and ricotta, a real lush treat! #freshpasta #pasta #spaghetti #homemadepasta #pescatarian #yummy #onthetable #foodism #lovefood #loveeating #foodshare #realfood #foodlover #eattheworld #lunch #appetiser #homemade #homecook #homecooked #homechef #food #foods #foodpic #foodphoto #foodphotography #foodography #instafood #foodstagram #delicious #tasty

Yin and yang of breakfast tartine. Homemade labneh and tapenade on olive bread. The saltiness of the tapenade is balanced by the smooth taste and texture of the labneh. Took me few attempts to nail the tapenade and very happy with the result. #breakfast #tapenade #labneh #cheese #homemade #homecooked #homecook #food #foods #foodpost #foodphotography #foodpic #foodography #foodstagram #instafood #yum #yummy #delicious #tasty #vegetarian #eeeeeats #lovefood #onthetable #homechef #homecook #chefmode #foodporn #eattheworld #foodism #foodgasm

Traditional Lebanese vegan dish consisting of green beans cooked in a rich tomato sauce. Called لوبيه بزيت (green beans in oil) to differentiate it from the one with meat. I roasted the cherry tomatoes and the garlic before adding them to the sauce, adding layers of flavour. #stew #beans #lebanesefood #lebanesecuisine #mediterraneanfood #MediterraneanCusine #vegan #healthy #foodpost #instafood #foodstagram #foodography #foodphoto #foodpic #delicious #tasty #yum #yummy #lunch #dinner #homecook #homemade #homechef #homecooked #eattheworld #realfood #onthetable #loveeating #lovefood #foodphotography

Not all cheesecake are born equally, some are sweet and some are savoury: Salmon & chives no bake cheesecake. Could be prepared in advance, serve with a drizzle of lemon juice. #pescatarian #salmon #cheesecake #savorycheesecake #instafood #foodstagram #delicious #tasty #yum #yummy #onthetable #foodism #lovefood #loveeating #foodshare #realfood #foodlover #eattheworld #snack #appetiser #homemade #homecook #homecooked #homechef #food #foods #foodpic #foodphoto #foodphotography #foodography

My sourdough starter has been very excited in the hot weather. Sourdough pancakes with green onion, chive and seeds. I had this with goat cheese and a drizzle of honey. I like the charred taste but you can cook them less! #sourdough #pancakes #soudoughpancakes #homemade #homecook #homecooked #homechef #food #foods #foodpic #foodphoto #foodphotography #foodography #instafood #foodstagram #delicious #tasty #yum #yummy #breakfast #vegan #onthetable #foodism #lovefood #loveeating #foodshare #realfood #foodlover #plantbased #eattheworld
