This collection is close to my heart because of my Lebanese roots. I grew up eating Fattoush Salad, Beef Kafta, Chicken Shawarma, Hummus, and Falafel just to name a few popular Lebanese recipes. These recipes are handed down from my family, so you can count on their quality, and authenticity and let the helpful tips guide you through making them as authentic as possible. You’ll find all the best classic Lebanese dinner recipes here like Stuffed Grape Leaves, Kousa (Stuffed Squash), and Lebanese Mujadara. And for dessert, I think you’ll love my family’s favorites like Baklava, Rice Pudding, Kanafa, and Sfouf (Turmeric Cake).

Yumna's Favorite Lebanese Recipes

My mom’s lebanese recipes

I grew up with my mom preparing Lebanese food for us seven days a week. She made it look effortless but special. When I got married, I wanted that for my family and started to learn how to cook one recipe at a time. I learned the key to the best Lebanese recipes was lots of garlic and lemon and using fresh ingredients whenever possible! I put together a free ebook with 14 of my favorite recipes from my mom. It’s full of approachable ingredients, strong flavors and modern methods for most of the recipes! As we say in Arabic, sahtain (enjoy!)
