There’s something about the levantine cuisine that makes it’s dishes one of the most loved throughout the world. I myself am not at all immune to it’s charms and let me tell you, I could easily live on hummus and baba ganoush alone.

Also, when roasted, it goes particularly good with cumin and it actually doesn’t need to be put in a salad. It’s that good to eat it all by itself read more
