Mujaddara, Palestinian Rice with Lentils and Sauteed Onions (Vegan)

Mujaddara is an amazing 'one-pot' meal native to Palestinian cuisine. It's comprised of rice, sauteed onions, brown lentils, and the smoky flavor of cumin. It's healthy, hearty, and even vegetarian. Make it an even healthier dish by swapping out the white rice for brown rice, quinoa, or bulghar wheat. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Mujaddara (Lentil Rice Casserole) 1 cup brown lentils 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 cup rice 1 tsp. cumin 1 1/2 tsp. salt 1/8 tsp. freshly ground pepper 2 medium onions 2 tbsp. olive oil 1. Start boiling some water for use later. 2. Wash lentils and put in large cooking pot with 2 cups cold water. Add garlic. Bring to boil, lower heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. 3. While lentils cook, start soaking the rice. Place rice in heat-resistant bowl, cover with boiling water and stir. Soak rice for about 15 minutes. 4. Drain rice well and mix with the cooked lentils and 1½ cups hot water. Add cumin, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer until all water is absorbed, about 15 minutes or longer. 5. While rice and lentils cook, halve the onions vertically and slice thinly. Fry onions in the olive oil until golden brown. 6. Transfer the mujaddara to a platter and top with the fried onion.

love the caramelized onions
@stargaze The smell of this dish cooking is always delicious. It's hard to wait sometimes, haha.
The ingredients are so simple but all so flavorful. I will have to get more garlic and try this out.
If this was cooked in front of me I would be dying to devour it. Looks so delicious!
This looks very savory! Wish I could eat it now!

É possível ganhar dinheiro no iFood?
Recebemos todos os dias essa mesma pergunta de muitos donos de restaurantes:é possível ganhar dinheiro noiFood? https://www.ciinformatica.com.br/ganhar-dinheiro-ifood O ideal é que o restaurante esteja presente em mais de uma plataforma de pedidos online ou market place, e possa adotar estratégias de negócio a fim de colher o melhor que cada uma delas tem a oferecer. Por exemplo, o iFood, que é o maior market place de delivery da América Latina, acaba sendo fundamental para visibilidade de marca para o restaurante e aumento de tráfego de pessoas e fluxo de pedidos. O preço disso? Altas taxas e percentual sobre vendas. Por outro lado, se o restaurante possui uma segunda solução de aplicativo de delivery, como o Vina, ele pode criar incentivos e ações para migrar e fidelizar os clientes que ele conquista via iFood para um aplicativo de delivery próprio que seja menos custoso para ele. Com o Vina, o restaurante paga apenas R$ 1 por pedido, sem percentual sobre vendas. Dessa forma, as plataformas de delivery acabam sendo complementares para o aumento de vendas e da rentabilidade do restaurante, e, recebendo pedidos via iFood ou Vina, o ideal é que o restaurante possua um sistema de gestão que possa integrar as duas plataformas e enviar os pedidos recebidos automaticamente para os pontos de produção, otimizando tempo, equipe e evitando erros manuais. Osistema para restaurantesControle Na Mão faz a integração tanto com iFood, quanto com o Vina.
Healthy Fattoush To Save Your Fat Toosh (Vegan)
Alright, that was corny, but it's always been completely impossible to say 'fattoush' without making that joke. What IS fattoush, you ask? It's the coarsely chopped Middle-Eastern answer to a Greek salad, as the two use a fairly similar dressing and are wonderfully light alternatives to whatever that creamy ranch and bacon bits disaster you've been calling a 'lunch salad' is. What sets it apart from Greek salad, however, is what gives fattoush its edge. Broken pieces of well-toasted pita bread soak up all of that delicious flavor and give the salad a nice crunchy crouton-esque ingredient. Once you've made this once or twice, it will probably be one of the easiest dishes to freestyle when you've got a whole bunch of fresh vegetables and no bottled dressing around. ------------------------------------------------------------- Fattoush (Salad with Bread Crumbs) 2 loaves pita bread 1/2 head of Romaine lettuce 1 bunch parsley, chopped 1 bunch green onions, chopped 1 cucumber, peeled and cut in small pieces 4 tomatoes, cut in small wedges 1 green pepper, chopped 1 clove garlic, crushed Juice of 2 lemons 1/2 cup olive oil 2 tbsp. chopped mint (or 1 tbsp. dried mint) Salt and pepper to taste Toast bread. Break into small pieces and set aside. Add chopped vegetables and toss until well mixed. Add lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper, and oil. Toss bread with the above ingredients and mix well. Serve immediately before bread gets lumpy. ------------------------------------------------------------- Feel free to add your own ingredients! Fresh chickpeas, red onion, crumbled feta, kalamata olives, or a sprinkle of sumac seasoning are all really popular additions.
The Best Anal Sex Toys for Butt Beginners V.2
No matter what kind of sex you’re having, sex toys are here to enhance your pleasure. For anal sex toy play alone, there are dozens of varieties of sex toys and accessories! That’s where we come in. We’ll take you through all the fun things you can put in and around your backdoor. Plugs Butt plugs are used for a variety of things and can be enjoyed by anyone of any gender. Most commonly, they’re used to provide a feeling of fullness or to stretch the anus safely. Plugs feature a tapered shape and — because the anus doesn’t have a natural stop sign like the vagina does with the cervix — should always have a flared base. They come in different materials, like medical-grade silicone, glass, and stainless steel, often with cool designs or charms on the end that remain outside the body. “Stainless steel plugs can be a perfect way to incorporate temperature play into your booty exploration. Plugs also come in vibrating and nonvibrating options. If, for example, you want to feel like you’re getting your bum licked, you might try a rimming plug, like the b-Vibe Rimming Plug 2. Not only does it vibrate, but it also features rotating beads to stimulate the inside of the anus. Plugs can also be weighted, like the b-Vibe Snug Plug. Weighted plugs usually contain small stainless steel balls that subtlety shift around inside the plug to increase the overall feeling of fullness. My favourite starter plug is the Shimmy from Unbound. It features a flared base and a hook for easy removal. The size and shape are excellent for beginners. For folks with penises, some plugs come with cock and ball ring attachments for extra fun! Beads Anal beads consist of several balls or spheres connected, each typically increasing in size. People are mainly drawn to anal beads because of their shape. “Both inserting and removing anal beads will provide arousal to the sensitive nerve endings of the sphincter muscle. Anal beads are usually made in the same materials and offer many of the same features as butt plugs, but beads have one thing that plugs don’t have flexibility. On the stiffer end of things, there are the b-Vibe Triplet Anal Beads. They’re made of silicone, vibrate, and can be remotely controlled for easy play. Fun Factory offers something a little more bendy with their aptly named Bendy Beads. There are many glass and stainless steel options for anal beads, too. Similar to plugs — and most anal toys in this article — beads must have a flared or hooked base to keep them from getting lost or stuck inside your bum. Dildos Dildos can be used as-is during solo or partnered play or worn with a harness to perform a penetrative anal play on a partner. Although most dildos can be used for anal penetration — so long as they have a flared base or are long enough not to need one — some are made specifically for anal stimulation. Like plugs, dildos can be used to provide a feeling of fullness, for example, is moulded in the shape of the anal canal to do just that. And if you have prostate or P-spot, you can get a dildo shaped specifically for P-spot stimulation. (More on this below.) Tantus makes a famous midrange P-spot toy, but for something on the smaller, cheaper end, try the Avant D14 by Blush Novelties. Double-ended dildos and strapless strap-ons, like this one from Fun Factory, can also be used for anal play.
Why Is Electrolyte Water Essential for the Body?
We are all aware that the benefits of drinking water are very remarkable: from controlling body temperature and blood pressure to enhancing mood, memory, and productivity. But do electrolytes added to the water, increase the benefits of H2O? What are Electrolytes? When dissolved in water, electrolytes are minerals that contain an electric charge. The meals you consume and the liquids you drink, keep your body electrolytes. These minerals, such as sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium, transport via the body and use their electrical energy, which include: · Balance your body's water amount · Balance the pH level of your body · Move your cells with nutrition · Stir your cells with garbage · Regulate your nerves, your muscles, and your heart and brain · Help reconstruction of tissue damaged Electrically loaded minerals such as sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium are injected into electrolyte water. Electrolyte water can sometimes be called mineral water or alkaline water. Whether you think it or not, seawater and tap water even contain different kinds of salt electrolytes. It is not recommended to drink salt water; it has a correct balance of minerals, which is essential for health promotion. Drinking water-electrolyte was specially developed with an optimal concentration of only the most advantageous electrolytes to boost hydrating and other body processes. Like sports drinks, electrolytes have been added for increased hydration but sports drinks often contain high quantities of sugar and calories. What is Electrolyte Water Up to 60% of the human adult body is comprised of water. Your body cannot execute all its vital tasks when you lose even a modest bit of this 60 percent. Electrolytes are dehydrated and control your hydration. Electrolyte levels in your blood may be too low in some circumstances, resulting in an imbalance. An electrolyte imbalance might adversely affect your health. Symptoms maybe – · Fatigue · Fast or irregular heartbeat · Numbness and tingling · Confusion · Muscle weakness and cramping · Headaches · Convulsions 1. Improves Performance During Workouts It is recommended that electrolyte-enhanced water be drunk frequently while practicing to restore the electrolytes lost in sweat. This improves the functioning of your heart, brain, muscle, and nerve system. 2. Supports Nervous System All of us can imagine sports athletes picking up sports beverages to recharge their lost electrolytes, but not only athletes have to maintain their bodies fluid and hydrated. Understanding the need for continuous moisture keeps us safe and productive in the end. Even a minor loss in moisture can result in reduced cognitive capacities, less attention and awareness, and less time to respond. Your reaction time is equal to someone with a blood level of alcohol at dehydration of 3% by .08%. 3. Protection from Heat Stroke Hot environments place you in danger from moderate heat rash to life-threatening heatstroke in a range of heat-related diseases. Your body usually handles heat by releasing it and sweating it across your skin. However, in hot temperatures, this cooling system can begin to malfunction, resulting in a dangerously high body temperature. You need to limit your heating time to avoid heat-related ailments. However, it is also essentially important to get sufficient fluids and electrolytes to keep your body cool. You can get electrolyte waters of different flavors all enriched with electrolytes and essential minerals at sites like eBay such as TrueGether. They offer timely discounts to their customers and all the products are very affordable!

The Most Authentic Hummus Recipe You Will Ever Find (Vegan)
Growing up in a Palestinian-American family, hummus was such a staple. My mother used to make sure plenty of tahini and chickpeas were readily available in the kitchen for when it was time to whip up a fresh batch for visiting family and friends. I ate hummus while I watched Saturday morning cartoons. I ate hummus at birthday parties, graduation parties, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter Sunday. I ate hummus in sandwiches or as a dip with carrot sticks and cucumbers. It was even a great alternative for onion dip when I needed something to dip my pretzels in. I recently 're-stumbled' across a book one of my cousins typed up from scribbled down Palestinian-style recipes passed around in my family for several generations. I figured there were probably tons of fellow hummus lovers on Vingle, so I've decided this would be a good opportunity to share the family recipe with others! --------------------------------------------------------- Chick Pea Dip (Hummus bi Tahineh) 1 lb. can of chick peas 1/3 cup tahineh Juice of 1 or 2 lemons 1 clove garlic Salt to taste 3 tbsp. olive oil A pinch of sumac (Note: Sumac is a dark-colored spice used in a lot of Arabic cooking. It's optional in this recipe, but if you're wanting to find some for yourself, I'd suggest looking in the ethnic ingredients section of your supermarket.) Boil chick peas in juice for 5 minutes on medium heat. Drain. Place chick peas, Tahineh, lemon juice, garlic, and salt in blender. Blend for 15 seconds to make an almost smooth, thick paste. Place Hummus in a plate and garnish with parsley, radishes, red pepper, and pickles. Cover dish with olive oil and sprinkle sumac. Or brown 3 tbsp. pine nuts in 2 tbsp. butter, and pour over Hummus instead of olive oil. --------------------------------------------------------- You can customize the garnish to your own personal tastes. I usually like to use olive oil, sumac, fresh chopped mint, whole chickpeas, and/or whole kalamata olives. The recipe is really easy and really inexpensive to make. (I'd suggest trying some in a fresh falafel sandwich!)
