Kosheri is a very common food in Egypt: available as street food, and also in restaurants specializing in it. We had it for the first time when we served it at one of Erin and Lisa's 2 Vagabonds open houses after they visited Egypt--and actually at every open house since then because it is always a hit--and many, many times at home, particularly for Meatless Mondays. It is so delicious as to be addicting. It's a hearty, satisfying meatless meal that is full of wonderful, assertive flavors (my favorite kind).
This is an easy, but amazingly flavorful and delicious grilled chicken recipe only very slightly adapted from the cookbook, "James McNair Cooks Southeast Asian", available here.
Quinoa is a staple “grain-like crop” grown that has a very long history of being very widely consumed in Peru. It’s high in protein and is otherwise nutritionally very dense; it also happens to be very, very delicious.
