Omek Houria is a Tunisian salad made with mashed vegetables, usually carrots, but zucchini or squash are equally good, and tossed with a harissa caraway dressing. The salad is usually garnished with boiled eggs, Feta, olives, capers or tuna. Spicy harissa, fresh cilantro, lemon juice and caraway seeds add an extra, wonderful layer of flavour, depth, and complexity to this simple salad that is traditionally served as an appetizer, but can equally well be an ideal accompaniment to any grilled meat or pan fried fish.

The tangy, garlicky anchovy dressing is fantastic with creamy, buttery avocado, crispy red lettuce and tender red radish cress. The dressing really brings the boring lettuce salad to life and it packs full of flavours. Plus it just takes 15 minutes to prepare. If desired, add some prawns or smoked salmon for the protein boost.

German Cheese and Leek Soup

Cheese spread, aka Schmelzkäse in Germany, and crème fraîche add a comforting creaminess to this indulgent cheesy leek soup recipe. It's a very popular soup in cold winter days here in Germany and traditionally, this German cheese leek soup (Käse-Lauch-Suppe) is prepared with ground meat. I had chosen to leave it out as I had a huge porterhouse as the main. However, you can top the soup with some crispy bacon bites and croutons for the crunchiness or simply serve it with some warm bread or rye crackers.
Cheese spread or processed cheese (Schmelzkäse in German) is made from ripe semi-hard cheese or fresh cheese (at least 50 %) with the addition of other milk products, such as butter or cream. It thickens sauces and soups and gives the dishes a fine, savoury note. Processed cheese is also perfect for gratin. It usually has a longer shelf life.

Pomegranate Molasses and Honey glazed Meatballs

These meatballs are soft, tender and so flavourful, but what really brings them to life and sets them apart from other meatball recipes is the use of pomegranate molasses. Pomegranate molasses is a syrup of boiled pomegranate juice, and has a fruity sweetness that's countered by a lovely, sharp tart flavour. It's most commonly used in Middle Eastern cuisine and often used to enhance savoury dishes, esp. red meat and game, with fruity flavours.

Ras el Hanout Spiced Mixed Nuts

Ras el hanout, literally translated as “head of shop,” is a spice mixture used in North African cooking. The mixture usually consists of over a dozen spices, in different proportions. Common ingredients include cardamom, cumin, clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, mace, allspice, dry ginger, chili peppers, coriander seed, peppercorn, sweet and hot paprika, fenugreek, and dry turmeric. I bought the spice blend in a local supermarket, but it's super easy to make your own. Here is a simplified recipe if you want to try it.
The spice blend gives extra oomph to this simple homemade nut mix. The nuts are delicious and provide the perfect balance of healthy fats, protein, and fiber that help beat in-between meal blahs and also great as a homemade gift too. I have used a mixture of pecans, walnuts, cashews and almonds, but any other nut combination would work too.

Roasted Salmon with Capers and Dill

This healthy baked salmon is the easy and tasty way to feed a crowd. It's more hands-off than cooking salmon on the stovetop--everything is oven-baked in foil, making prep and cleanup a breeze and it delivers a perfect medium-cooked fillet that’s tender and flaky. Salmon is terrific with just a sprinkle of fresh herbs (thyme,tarragon, parsley or dill) and a wedge of lemon squeezed over top as you serve it with any of your favorite veggies or salad.
I added a bed of lemon slices to infuse the fish with a citrusy freshness. If you prefer a crispy skin, then try this Garam Masala Pan Seared Salmon recipe!

Roasted Carrots with Pumpkin Seed Pesto and Yoghurt

Use baby carrots or heirloom carrots if you could find them. Adding pesto is an easy way to elevate the flavour of this humble root vegetable. It makes a perfect side dish or even a lunch. Swap the yoghurt for a dairy-free alternative if you have a dairy sensitivity. Leftover pesto is perfect on some pasta or served as a dip.
