Lebanese green beans

Green beans are called lubiyeh in Arabic, and are most often stewed with tomatoes like in this recipe. The basic idea is to saute the onions and garlic and then braise green beans with tomatoes. This recipe goes well with lamb and a Lebanese flatbread with houmus.

Refreshing fruit brochettes

Today I bring you an idea to freshen up eating a dessert this summer and it is also very healthy and very simple to prepare. It is these so original refreshing fruit brochettes.

We are going to need a special tool, such as a vegetable ball-maker. Although today we can find it in any store or big market. With it we are going to take out small balls of the fruit that we want. I have chosen mango, watermelon, melon and kiwi.
