* k i n d o f c a e s a r * This started off as a Caesar salad but then evolved into an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink salad ๐Ÿ˜„ A variety of greens with crisp romaine lettuce and tender baby spinach leaves. A handful of grape tomato halves and some torn up poached chicken go on. The dressing has dijon mustard, lemon juice, mayo, Worcester sauce, garlic and then olive oil and seasoning. No cheese or croutons, this one has sugar snap pea chips for crunch! Delicious, filling and sharp! **************************************************** #yum #salad #greens #glutenfree #healthy #healthylifestyle #healthyfood #balanceddiet #balancedmeal #chickenrecipes #fdblogger #dubaifoodblogger #dubaifoodies #foodphotography #foodstagram #foodgawker #foodigers #chikieats #chikibrainstorm #chikibrainstormsaboutfood

* s a l a d * Yes, a salad can be a meal, and a great one at that! Layer it up and give yourself a variety of flavours, colours and textures! This one has a base of baby spinach leaves with cherry tomato halves, chunks of homemade pickled cucumber, spiced grilled chicken, toasted pecans and some sharp honey-mustard vinaigrette! This lunch for one is a solo treat! **************************************************** #yum #nutritious #delicious #salads #foodstagram #foodgawker #foodphotography #foodblogger #fdblogger #dubaifoodblogger #dubaifoodies #balanceddiet #balancedmeal #veggies #lowcarb #healthylifestyle #healthyfood #foodigers #chikieats #chikibrainstorm #chikibrainstormsaboutfood

* 5 ingredient breakfast bowl * So I made my own soy yogurt last night! I never thought it would be so simple! I used the yoghurt option on my multi cooker, left it to set for 8 hours and then chilled it overnight! It's a bit thin but that's normal for plant based milks. Next I'll work on a coconut yoghurt. Of course you don't need to make your own yoghurt to have a good breakfast! Just use any store-bought yoghurt for this 5 ingredient wonder! Happy eating! ********************************************************** #yum #delicious #nutritious #breakfastofchampions #breakfastbowl #instabreakfast #soyyoghurt #nondairy #dairyfree #vegan #vegetarian #fdblogger #dubaifoodblogger #balanceddiet #foodvideos #healthyfood #homemade #chikieats #chikibrainstorm #chikibrainstormsaboutfood

* h u m m u s * Now I'm not going to pretend this is the best hummus out there but it is creamy, garlicky and addictive! Boiled chickpeas are peeled and then processed till smooth with garlic, lemon, salt and olive oil. Ice cubes are added mid-process to emulsify it further. It's a perfect protein-rich, delicious lunch or snack. I've made this without tahini due to my sesame allergy but if you want to mimic a more authentic texture without tahini, you can make a smooth paste of sunflower seeds (I read this on a blog once and it really did add to the texture!) Dip some veggies or toasted pita bread into it, or make a chicken wrap with it (that's what I'm going to make tonight)! *************************************************** #yum #delicious #healthy #hummus #spread #dip ##chickpeas #garbanzo #levantine #protein #allergyfriendly #fdblogger #dubaifoodblogger #dubaifoodies #homecooking #chikibrainstorm #chikibrainstormsaboutfood

* b o l o g n e s e * Do you know what happens to a Bolognese sauce when you slow cook it for 8 hours? It becomes silky, sweet and unforgettable! Slow cooking isn't advanced cooking, in fact it's cheat cooking! Saute the meat and veggies well and then pop all your sauce ingredients on for a long slow cook and go out for a fun night! Win-win situation if you ask me! This one has some thick spaghetti tossed through it and you can even go over it with a fresh grating of pecorino or parmesan. I don't eat cheese and this one doesn't need it to be honest. Here's to a good carb night ๐Ÿ **************************************************** #yum #delicious #pasta #spaghetti #bolognese #beef #slowcookerrecipes #slowcooked #italiannight #fdblogger #dubaifoodblogger #dubaifoodies #dubaiblogger #homemade #foodigers #comfortfood #chikibrainstorm #chikibrainstormsaboutfood

As the weather cools down (well at least a little ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ) it's time to start making soup! This one's a rich and delicious roasted tomato & pepper soup. Simple and straight forward prep in the oven and then blitz to make it creamy and smooth. This one is completely #vegetarian and #vegan and ticks all the boxes.

* b u r g e r s * The weekend isn't complete without a good burger fix and this week @she_burger is on the menu. . We start the meal with a crunchy crab salad - a creamy tower of a California rolled turned inside out - wiped out in minutes! Next comes the mammoth Korean shortrib - cooked for 24 hours and you can taste it in the sweet, melting meat. I would only share this with people I really like! Now it's time to test out the burgers. I choose the classic cheeseburger (without cheese) to get the true taste of the patty. I'd give it an 8/10 simply bcos it could be more moist and a pinch of salt while cooking is all it needs. Overall with the excellent bun and condiments, the burger is great! Must tries are the 'got bacon' which has Oman chips as well as the 'mad chicken' which is a fried chicken burger with a spicy santa fe sauce! I have to try the 'chili dog' bcos a good hotdog is hard to come by and I am not disappointed. Even though the Frank could use some improvement, the beef chili on top takes this to another level. It has a deeply spiced and smoky Mexican flavour to it. Unforgettable. Drinks are refreshing here and the portions are satisfying. Hands down one of the best passion fruit drinks - 'somethings yellow'. * Verdict * Very good burgers with interesting flavour combinations, many of them reminiscent of well established fast food classics. The nostalgia is real here and well reimagined. I'll definitely be back. โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข โ€ข #yum #burger #beef #patty #cluck #friedchicken #fries #fastfood #gourmet #eatingoutdubai #whatsondubai #fdblogger #dubaifoodies #dubaifoodblogger #dubaiblogger #weekendvibes #chikidiscovers #chikieats #chikibrainstorm #chikibrainstormsaboutfood

Y'all know by now how much I love my breakfast bowls right? This my pre-dental surgery meal and I would not have it any other way!! You can check the insta story for the recipe real quick if you'd like to make it! It's a silky luscious combo of stuff that's just pure good for you! Do you see that I've used fresh figs? This fruit amazes me because it tastes like nature's jam and it's so beautiful to look at.

Made sure the meal was a good substitute for my company ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘Œ Here is spaghetti in 15-minute tomato sauce with a sprinkle of crispy garlic beef bacon and grated pecorino cheese (which imo is much better than parmesan!)

Another day, another breakfast bowl! This one is all about texture! A creamy blanket of soy yoghurt with oats and fresh coconut that have been flash toasted in 5 mins. A scattering of goji berries, cacao nibs, dried cranberries and dried strawberries! You can substitute any of the ingredients for what you have on hand.

Keema mattar aloo (Mince peas potatoes) ************************************* I just had to post this comfort food classic that I grew up eating! It starts off with an onion-ginger-garlic paste that is friend off with spices like turmeric, coriander and chili. The minced beef, peas and potatoes get fried in this paste and then simmered gently with blended tomatoes. A generous blanket of fresh coriander leaves give this a herby bite. Onto my plate please! ************************************* #yum #keema #mince #beef #delicious #pakistanifood #pakistanicuisine #desieats #comfortfood #homecooking #fromscratch #dubaifoodies #fdblogger #dubaifoodblogger #atthetable #chikibrainstorm #chikibrainstormsaboutfood

I have found my new favorite cafe! Photos do not do this place justice. Went to @societydxb in Jumeirah 1 and fell in love. Serene and gorgeous interior space (I haven't taken photos, go see for yourself!) with a delicious menu that seems to cater to those with dietary restrictions and those without. They have a wide selection of drinks to choose from. Juices and mocktails, teas and coffees. I went with a chilled matcha frappe made with coconut milk, with plump chia seeds. I sweetened with a bit of agave and this drink was seriously refreshing! I would have liked a bit more focus on the tea selection but it wasn't bad, just not the brand of tea that I'm a fan of. The first thing I laid eyes on, as I entered the cafe was the striking raspberry rose croissant. It did not disappoint one bit! Excellent pastry with a lava of not-too-sweet jam pouring out and the rose petals on top gave it a subtle floral note. Can't wait to go back and eat my way across the menu ๐ŸŒน *************************************************** #yum #croissant #teatime #matcha #frappe #eatingoutdubai #dubaicafe #foodiedubai #fdblogger #bloggerdubai #dubaifoodblogger #chikibrainstorm #chikidiscovers #chikibrainstormsaboutfood

Finally visited @taniasteahouse yesterday with the amazing @t3a_am0 what a gem she is! The clock whizzed by as we chatted the afternoon away ๐Ÿ˜Š she even brought me a huge tea gift stash which I will post later! . For a quick lunch I ordered the chicken quinoa bowl but had to sub the grain with baby spinach due to an allergy. While I appreciated this effort by the chef, the salad overall wasn't as exciting as I'd hoped and came on a bed of raisins that really overwhelmed! Maybe the food needs a bit of time! To drink I ordered the chai matcha latte in soy milk. At first sip, the chai taste felt strong however as I got accustomed to it, I really fell in love! Hope this place evolves and works further on the menu. Will keep an eye out as there is great potential here! ________________________________ #yum #teatime #lunchtime #teahouse #salad #matcha #matchatea #matchalatte #soy #nondairy #dairyfree #fdblogger #dubaifoodblogger #whatsondubai #dubairestaurant #eatdubai #chikieats #chikidiscovers #chikibrainstorm #chikibrainstormsaboutfood

Food is messy! It's messy and dramatic and colourful and glorious! Who eats a liquid breakfast in a plate? I do ๐Ÿ˜‹ Shake up some chia seeds in a little jar of coconut milk. Keep it in the fridge and go to sleep. Isn't that the best recipe?! Wake up and pour it out. Stir through some blended frozen berries. Top with crushed bran flakes, broken walnuts and date syrup. Now slurp it up and feel great! ________________________________ #yum #delicious #nutritious #breakfast #chia #berries #5aday #fruit #healthy #vegan #veganbreakfast #sweettreats #bran #fdblogger #dubaifoodblogger #breakfastofchampions #foodforfoodies #chikibrainstorm #chikibrainstormsaboutfood

Alright so here's how it went down at @mightyquinnsbbquae ! We order the trio of sliders which we customise to have 2 burnt end buns and one with just smoked brisket. Let me tell you, the burnt ends here are a touch dry but the brisket is out of this world ๐Ÿ’ฅ so silky and tender it tastes like short rib! The house BBQ sauce is sweet and smokey. The accompanying pickled veg - cucumber, onion and chilies - make such a fresh and crunchy balance of the whole meal. The fries are at least twice cooked and have that deep crispness to them. The surprise element of the meal is the tart and refreshing kale, avo and quinoa salad, an absolute winner! Missing the mark on the beans for me - not enough sauce and more tenderness needed. The crispy bbq chicken s/w is not heavy at all though I'd like a little crunch on the batter. Need to eat my way through the menu some more! Don't miss this one. ________________________________ #yum #bbq #smoked #meatlover #meatfest #salad #beans #craving #dubaieats #restaurantdubai #fdblooger #dubaifoodblogger #dubaifoodies #whatsondubai #wheretoeatdubai #dubaimall #chikieats #chikidiscovers #chikibrainstorm #chikibrainstormsaboutfood

Have you ever eaten biryani from a Michelin bib gourmand restaurant? This was my first time @bismillahbiryanisg โญ Swipe left to see more of this humble dining spot where someone walks in every 5 minutes and orders a plate of "goat kid biryani" aka mutton. The rice grains were long and deeply spiced with no overbearing heat. The meat in question was fragrant and tender , you could eat it with a spoon or your hands easily ๐Ÿฅ˜ The dish in the first photo is called "haleem" which is a slow cooked porridge of sorts - lentils, cracked wheat and mutton are slow cooked with spices and then pounded by hand for an even consistency.
