My name is Miriam and I am Dana’s research assistant, guest blogging for this week’s recipe. I find so much expression and joy through playing with food and creating dishes that taste great. International cuisine makes it all the more inspiring- being able to experience a little bit of culture with each bite. Here I found comfort in the Mediterranean diet after having traveled to and missing the Israeli taste buds all too much.
The chickpeas and mung beans are a great source of soluble fiber. The tomatoes contain lycopene which act as a natural SPF and protect the skin against sun damage. The blend of fresh and dried spices account for its kick and addict-ability factor. The more color, the better.
