Can you smell me from there?

Another one for the foodies (and godfather uncle back home!). Today's dinner is mloukhiye - a dish so many Lebanese call their favourite, but one that many try to stay clear from due to the final topping you will see (or smell) below...

Start with a layer of toasted Lebanese bread.

Top it with rice.

And then with some mloukhiye. I can't find an English name for it, but it's a green leaf
(similar to Spinach) that you boil for this dish.

Add some pieces of chicken breast.

And finish it off with a topping of finely chopped onion mixed with vinegar. Lethal to those chatting to you for the rest of the day, but satisfying for the stomach.

  1. Sista-Sista's is VERY tasty... but yes, I agree about the smell factor. Little chance for another nephew or niece if we had to eat it every day :)
