Fruits in Season: Mulberries or ” Toot” Three-Ways

I don’t really know why, but there’s something comforting about going to the market only to find fruits and vegetables that are newly in season. It must be because I’m a person who embraces change and who’s always ready to move on to the next step, refusing to sink into the same routine for too long. Little changes are thus welcomed, an example being cooking or baking with fresh fruits and vegetables.

One fruit in season this month is the Mulberry fruit or “Toot”. Mulberries are full of benefits. Packed with all kinds of vitamins and iron, they give your body energy and good health. They have the power to prevent a number of diseases and health problems, so next time you’re in the supermarket, don’t think twice and get that pack of mulberries. If you happen to live or work in Ashrafieh, you can also buy your mulberries from a man who gets them everyday from Tyre and sells them in front of Supermarket Ashrafieh.

Here are 3 ways to have mulberries:

1) As they are, or with yogurt as an afternoon snack.

2) In your morning or afternoon smoothie. You can find a delicious Mulberry Smoothie recipe here.

3) In you pancakes, replace the blueberries with mulberries. Refer to recipe #1 of this post.

The Perfect Breakfast Menu

It’s only Tuesday but with this weather, the weekend is already on my mind. There’s nothing more pleasing than waking up on Saturday to the smell of a freshly prepared breakfast. Whether you’re having a meal with family members, alone with your significant other or hosting a big brunch at home, here’s a great menu to put together. Most recipes are not complicated and can be prepared in advance. It’s all about a nice combination of easy breakfast dishes with fresh juices, coffee and tea.

On this breakfast menu: Blueberry pancakes, Potato and Bacon Egg flowers, all kinds of eggs and accompaniments.

Recipe #1: Blueberry Pancakes

Make the pancake mix (for 2 persons):

In a bowl, mix 1 cup of flour, 1 egg, 1 Tbsp of sugar, and 1 Tbsp of baking powder, adding milk until the mixture is watery but still thick.

Make the pancakes:

In a greased pan, add a spoonful of pancake mix and top with 4 to 5 blueberries. Flip on the side of the blueberries and transfer to the serving dish. Top with maple syrup and enjoy!

Recipe #2: Potato Egg and Bacon Egg Flower, by our Designer Cook Maria

Potato flowers:

Ingredients (for 3 potato flowers)

  • 1 potato
  • 4 medium mushrooms
  • 3 eggs
  • Bread of your choice
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Shredded parmesan cheese
  • Shredded gruyere cheese
  • A pinch of salt
  • Oregano
  • White pepper
  • Olive oil

Wash you potatoes, slice them then boil them for about 10 minutes with some salt and olive oil.

Dice the mushrooms and cook them in olive oil with just a bit of garlic and salt, until brownish.

Cut the bread into round pieces and fit them in greased ramekins .

Place the potato slices around the bread (resembling flower petals). Top with a mix of shredded cheese, mushrooms, salt, then cheese again. Break the egg on top, add salt and pepper, and place in a preheated oven for about 20 minutes (keep watching).

When the egg flower is baked, sprinkle with oregano and serve!

Bacon Flowers:

Go through the same steps as the potato flowers, replacing the potatoes with bacon.
