Our Arabic flavor recipe for the Month of April took us to Nablus! Rania Al Wazani invited us to make Tamriyeh, the popular Nabulsi dessert from scratch.
Last year, in my Romanieh recipe post I took you on a little trip to the old markets of Nablus.
Nablus (sometimes called Nābulus) is a Palestinian city in the northern West-Bank, approximately 63 kilometers (39 mi) north of Jerusalem. Located between Mount Ebal and Mount Gerizim
When it comes to food, Nablus is a gastronomic heaven,famous for its signiture cheese “the Nabulsi cheese” and its wide array of sweets, ranging from kunafeh, a stringy, cheesy, crispy, sweet, gooey, delicious dessert which defies definition.
Although Freekeh (pronounced free-ka or free-k-) has recently joined the “super food” club, it has been popular in the Arabic cuisine for centuries, mainly in the Levantine area and north-east africa. Freekeh is roasted green wheat that is used to make soups, pilafs,salads and stuffing for chicken and poultry. It is one of my favorite ingredients because of its versatility, earthy nutty flavor tones,and of course because of its nutritional value
