The Casbah

I love to cook. I love to cook a simple meals for my family and friends even more. I didn't go to any cooking schools. I learned  to cook from my grandma, my mom and my dad (oh, my dad is such a good cook!), and from my married life.
I also like to explore the culinary world out there for inspiration and pleasure.
Few days ago I had lunch with my dear friend Lisa at a new restaurant The Casbah. We were so hungry and busy talking to each other that I forgot to take a few pictures.

  Today I had a job interview in the area and decided to have my lunch at The Casbah. Among a good selection of dishes on the menu, they have delicious vegetarian choices.
You don't have to be a vegetarian to enjoy Falafel with Tahini  or Garlic sauce. Falafel is made of ground chickpeas with spices, onion, and garlic. Here is your fiber, protein and many other benefits that chickpeas offer.

I enjoyed  BabaGhanoush, which is type of spread made of Grilled eggplant,  Tahini, lemon, garlic and spices. It is served with Arabic pita bread. mmmm, so good!

  When we were at The Casbah with Lisa, we had stuffed Grape leaves and Tabbouleh salad.
Everything was light on digestions, but loaded with nutrients!

The most amazing part of this place is the Turkish style coffee. It's a real thing, go treat yourself with one cup, or two.

There are other vegetarian options on the menu, so I'll have to go back to try it all and open the door to a new flavors in my kitchen...

Until next time,
Cowboy Country Vegetarian
