We all love going out for dinner or even ordering in our favourite takeaway but there’s something about a home cooked meal that makes eating dinner even more enjoyable. However, we do tend to get stuck in a cooking cycle of just redoing the same recipes over and over again. We go to our easy fail safes, but what about discovering some new recipes? If you’re on our site, we know that you LOVE Lebanese cuisine, so we thought we would do a round-up of some great middle-Eastern recipes for you to try at home!
You can have your favourite beef shawarma sandwich right at home, this easy recipe is all you need!

And the good news is, beef shawarma is easy to make right at home, no special equipment needed.
Arayes is a popular street food in Lebanon that is basically kofta meat stuffed inside pita bread and then grilled or oven baked. It’s a great way to use up leftover kofta meat or hashweh meat and works well as an appetizer or main meal.

Made with only three ingredients for the base, Ghraybeh (also called ghorayba or graybeh) is a popular Middle Eastern shortbread cookie with a smooth and buttery texture, and delicate, sweet flavour.
This is the mother of all hummus dips, if such a title existed! Epic layered hummus dip, prepared Lebanese-style.
