Carrot Purée as a Healthy Secret Ingredient

put in containers

I learned a really cool cooking idea many years ago that I’ve used over and over again to flavor soups, rice dishes and more. It’ll also help you use up that whole bag of carrots that’s going bad in your fridge right now. If you have kids, you can also use the same trick to slip into a whole host ... Read More »

Halal Korean Cuisine Made Delicious and Convenient

Beef Bulgogi by Saffron Road

When I first came to Chicago over thirteen ago, the last type of cuisine I ever thought I would fall in love with is Korean, not for any other reason than the fact that I had no idea there was such a large population of Koreans living in and around the city. The first way I found out was by ... Read More »

Chicken Pita Rolls with Hummus & Tabbouleh

Chicken Pita Rolls | My Halal Kitchen

I had no idea what a hit these pita rolls would be. They seemed so easy to make and with such a familiar taste to them, I didn’t even think they would be very interesting to other people. When I instagrammed making these several months ago, so many people were intrigued and wanted the recipe. I totally understand why now- ... Read More »

Italian Wedding Soup

Italian Wedding Soup | My Halal Kitchen

While making this recipe and preparing to share it with you, I decided to do a little research to find out the history behind the origin of a soup I grew up eating all the time and that is quite popular in Italian restaurants: Italian Wedding Soup. Growing up in a family with very Sicilian roots, we often ate this ... Read More »

French Onion Soup with a Halal Substitute for Red Wine

French Onion Soup final pic

Just as I’m a huge fan of many French dishes (particularly the peasant food from the south), I’ve also always loved the very classic French Onion Soup, or “Soupe a l’Oignon”, as the French say it. My mom made it at home a couple times but we mostly enjoyed it at some of the great restaurants where I grew up eating out ...

Green Breakfast Smoothie

kale in blender

I’ve heard all sorts of people say that they’ve never felt better after drinking ‘green’ smoothies- with lots of green veggies like celery, spinach, kale, avocados as well as other things like beets and carrots. Chock full of vitamins, minerals and fiber, they’re said to help detox the body, or cleanse it.  To be honest, it just never seemed appetizing ... Read More »

Is it Possible to Reverse Diabetes without Prescription Medication?

lettuce or greens

I’m a huge fan of learning as much as possible about doing things naturally. Some would say that it’s simply not possibly to reverse serious illness or regenerate health or even our global ecosystem by natural {and healthy} means. I truly believe that if we seek, we shall find and that goes for all of the above situations. It’s been ... Read More »

Brunch: Poached Eggs & Salmon Over Vegetables & Greens

Smoked Salmon and Poached Eggs Over Salad Greens

Last Saturday night, I watched a great documentary on how to reverse diabetes by going on a raw foods and vegan diet. I’m not a diabetic, alhamdullilah, I’m not a fan of veganism, and  I prefer to cook my food- however- I’m very open to the benefits of eating more and more fresh fruits and vegetables in our diets and how to reverse ...

How to Cook Basmati Rice

Basmati Rice with a fork

 I’ve been making Basmati rice for many, many years although the first time I made it is a time I look back on and have to laugh just a bit. I had never seen rice other than white grain or wheat bran rice, let alone cooked with it. I found it a common rice, sometimes the only type of rice ... Read More »

Vegetarian Korma with Basmati Rice

I’ve been cooking with Saffron Road products for a long time now and I really do enjoy them. They actually spoil me- made with high quality ingredients, part of the non-GMO project, many of which are gluten-free, and they’re really, really good. For something that makes your life easier, it’s a relief to find something of such value. The most recent recipe ... Read More »
