Isn’t it amazing how the taste and smell of individual ingredients are completely altered when they’re brought together? The smell of parsley, dill, and coriander combined is nailed into my memory so deep, that it'll immediately and involuntarily bring up old memories of my childhood. My family used them in everything... veggie casseroles, stuffed veggie dishes, in sauces, with rice, you name it. At the local Cairo vegetable vendors and in supermarkets, parsley, dill and coriander are abundantly available, and I’ve come to believe that they’re definitely an essential part of our herb-c...

Whenever someone mentions hummus, I immediately (don’t laugh) think of Sex and the City Part II, where the majority of the film takes place in Abu Dhabi. Remember that part when Samantha was stuffing her face with hummus every day because she didn’t have her hormone medication? Well… it wasn’t without reason: Hummus, otherwise known as chickpeas, is full of estrogen hormones, oozing with protein, essential vitamins and minerals, and heart-healthy unsaturated fats.

You can, quite easily, make simple, nutritional, and feel-good food in your kitchen with a teeny bit of effort and a whole heap of flavor. This recipe is quite the no-brainer, with a basic idea that takes only minutes to prepare and about 40 minutes to get itself together in the oven.
