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

You know how some words mean completely different things in different countries? Tajén is one of them, in the Maghreb countries it is the very famous stew, in Lebanon it is this scrumptious dish of white fish & onion in a thick tahini & lemon sauce. Served cold as part of Mezze, it is usually made with leftover fish. #fish #pescatarian #lebanesefood #lebanesecuisine #mediterraneanfood #mediterraneancuisine #mezzeh #mezza #foodie #londonfoodie #homechef #homecook #homecooked #homemade #delicious #tasty #yum #yummy #instafood #foodphotography #lovefood #loveeating #foodism #foodpic #foodphoto #foodgasm #fooddiary #homemadefood #eeeeeats #foods

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

First day of cool weather in a long, long time, so here comes the stew. Maybe I can trick the universe to think that winter has started and we are done with the inferno. Sausage, beans, spinach & mushroom stew, slow cooked in red wine and homemade passata! Served with rice or slices of bread. #stew #sausage #beans #winterfood #homemade #homecooked #homecook #homechef #foodie #londonfoodie #delicious #tasty #yum #yummy #instafood #foodpost #foodstagram #chefmode #foodphotography #foodpic #foodphoto #comfortfood #foodgasm #traditionalfood #foodism #cooking #eeeeeats #heresmyfood #dinner #lunch

There are just as many kebbeh recipes in the world as there are people making Kebbeh. I have been experimenting making Kebbeh with mint - took a couple of trials to reach this: Kebbeh cups with labneh, tomato, olives & dried mint. Perfect as an appetiser or as a standout buffet item. Kebbeh is the Lebanese national dish mainly made with minced meat and cracked wheat. #kebbeh #lebanesefood #lebanesecuisine #mediterraneanfood #homemade #homecooked #foodpost #foodpic #foodphotography #foodphoto #instafood #foodie #londonfoodie #onthetable #chefmode #dinner #lunch #appetiser #delicious #tasty #foodism #traditionalfood #yum #yummy #nomnomnom #getinmybelly #eeeeeats #sahten #foodstagram #eat

Have been out of the kitchen for few weeks thanks to the heat wave. Went back yesterday to make this lush brocoli tart. Absolutely delicious and great with a tangy salad.

You have few guests coming over to watch the game and you want something quick and refreshing? Try this beetroot dip (not hummus): Beetroot, labneh, garlic and tahini sauce. Can be prepared few hours in advance and I will serve it with Zaatar crackers. #beetroot #snack #sidedish #dip #appetiser #homemade #homecooked #homecook #homecooking #food #foods #instafood #foodpic #foodphotography #foodphoto #delicious #tasty #yum #yummy #vegetarian #healthy #glutenfree #foodporn #getinmybelly #foodography #vegetables #fooddiary #chefmode #foodporn #eeeeeats

A refreshing minimum work salad on this ridiculously hot day. Grilled peaches, speck ham, buffalo mozzarella and wild rocket, topped with simple olive oil. It’s not necessary to grill the peaches but I feel it makes them sweeter. #salad #summerfood #summersalad #homemade #homecook #homecooked #refreshing #tasty #delicious #yum #yummy #foodphoto #foodphotography #foodpost #foodpic #foodstagram #instafood #foodie #londonfoodie #chedmode #getinmybelly #foodism #onthetable #cooking #eating #dinner #lovecooking #sundayfunday #mozarella #peach

Avocado toast with olives, pine nuts and basil leaves from my kitchen window garden. I used olive bead that I grilled with a bit of olive oil. Have I said olive enough?

I don’t have AC but I have a fridge full of leftovers so I made myself a leftover salad. Turned out pretty good... I think. Tuna, corn, edamame beans, mozzarella, chilli, olive oil & lemon juice. #salad #leftovers #healthy #pescatarian #foodie #londondoodie #cooking #homecooking #homecook #homemade #food #foods #foodphotography #eeeeeats #foodphoto #foodpic #foodography #delicious #tasty #easydinner #lunch #dinner #foodism #onthetable #instafood #foodstagram #yum #yummy #foodgasm

Sun out… Refreshing salads in. Manori cheese, watermelon, olive, mint & grilled onion salad. I had it with gorgeous basil infused Greek olive oil. Amazing flavours without the need to be close to a heat source for long! #salad #summerfood #watermelon #cheese #healthy #fresh #homemade #homecooked #food #foodpost #foodpic #foodphotography #foodphoto #instafood #delicous #tasty #dinner #lunch #yum #yummy #Mediterraneanfood #foodlove #onmytable #foodstagram #chefsofinstagram #chefmode #foodie #londonfoodie #eeeeeats #lovefood
