I am thoroughly enjoying making, baking and eating khubz with a variety of dishes. I have created a pan-fried tofu sandwich on homemade khubz using the fresh tatsoi greens I purchased from the Weavers Way farm. I seasoned my tofu with smoked paprika, cayenne pepper and some tamari soy sauce.

I pan-fried it in oil until it became nice and crispy then threw in some onions to saute’ a bit.

After the onions cooked down I added the tatsoi greens sautéing until they became wilted just enough to keep  the delicate flavor of the greens.

I took the khubz and charred it on the stove top over an open flame set to low.

I then constructed a very tasty pan-fried tofu sandwich on khubz and my little friend suddenly showed up!

The tofu had a wonderful smoked and slightly spicy flavor from the cayenne and smoked paprika. The tofu itself was hot, crispy, moist and packed a big punch of flavor that held up nice to the charred hefty texture of the khubz. The tatsoi was delicate yet hearty like spinach and helped take this sandwich to the next level!  mmm mmm good!

Yum Food!! Yum Art!!

Dessert-ish Pizza on Khubz

You may ( or may not) recall my last post on my first time making Khubz, the Arabic flat bread my family grew up eating. If not go back and check it out. I mentioned how I would create some yummy new creations utilizing the Khubz. Well I made a delicious dessert-like pizza using peanut butter, banana and cinnamon sugar. The peanut butter was my base and I sprinkled liberal amounts of the cinnamon sugar on top of sliced banana’s and into the toaster oven/or broiler it went to carmelize the top of it and get it nice and charred. It was ah-mazing! I loved it and will put it on my recipe list to use again and again. The shape resembled the state of Florida a bit, or the continent of Africa.

Don’t be afraid to let it char so it can get gooey and carmelized. The char adds a balanced, slight bitterness to the sweetness of the sugar. So good!

I sliced it into smaller slices and devoured it with a cup of coffee.

The banana will become hot adding to the sweet flavor making it a tasty and somewhat healthier version of dessert, or a good hearty breakfast treat.

Now on to more scrumptious khubz creations!
