egg cabbage rice buddha bowl

Food served in a bowl, or what Instagram taught us to call Buddha bowls are not so new. As the name implies it is a reference to the single (or one of the few) possessions a buddhist monk has, which is a bowl that allows him (or her) to receive food in return of their prayers and blessings. Nothing farthest from the overly abundant bowls full with all sorts of food that we’ve seen in Pinterest or IG, maybe because people tend to correlate this to Buddha’s big belly instead to a daily affirmation of less is more.

To each its own.

Middle East rice with lentils dish

Mejadra (rice and lentils) is a dish from the Levantine region that has traveled all over the world and has seen as many reinterpretations as possible, the most notable being the Hindu version of it (at least, that’s mho). In Mexico, I ate this dish whenever my parents would bring us to eat Lebanese food, a very common *ethnic* cuisine that is easily accessible in most of the territory, however the Israelian-ish version I ate at Magdalena was the best I´ve ever had, of course, their version is an upscale one of the New Arabic Cuisine, and my intentions when I cook at home is to keep things delicious but simple, so I mixed several Mejadra recipes I found here and there, and I came up with my own hybrid version.
