It’s easy, Fast, and colorful. It looks so festive that I decided to publish it for the New Year’s Eve parties.

Arroz à grega (“Greek-style rice” – Although given the name “Greek”, in Greece there is no such rice dish) is a Brazilian dish, consisting of rice (of course) cooked with raisins and small pieces of vegetables, the most common of them are small cubes of carrot, green peas, sweet corn and green onions. It can get small bits of ham (smoked or not), sausage and/or turkey breast (smoked or not), among other processed meat supposed to be eaten cold, but if chicken meat or shrimps are used, it is instead known as risotto.

 

Kibbeh (pronounced kee-bee and also spelled quibe, kibe, kibbe, kebbah, kubbeh, kubbah kubbi or kobeiba depending on region) is a dish made of Bulgur (cracked wheat), minced onions, and finely ground lean beef with mint, basil, cinnamon and optional spices. It can be optionally stuffed with mozzarella, provolone or cream cheese (Catupiry in Brazil).

This recipe has been adapted from the one my Godmother Regina Alfradique has sent to me and there are several ways to eat. The football-shaped deep-fried (or also shaped into balls or patties), baked in a casserole dish (my favourite way), cooked in broth, or just served raw with olive oil.

Kibbeh is a popular dish in Brazil and Middle Eastern cuisine. Most Brazilian kibbeh uses only ground beef and not other types of meat but in Middle Eastern they also use lamb, goat, or camel meat.

 

Chopped salads are my life. I crave them 95% of the time and I have a salad every single week day for lunch, but just on the weekends or special occasions I make richer salads like this one.

This salad, which is very similar to my favourite one from Outback Steakhouse, is a blend of fresh flavours (mixed greens with shredded carrots, red cabbage, green onions, sweet candied pecans, tossed with Blue Cheese vinaigrette and topped with Blue Cheese crumbles). You will absolutely fall in love with this recipe.

 

This Brazilian classic pie is often a lifesaver on busy days and within 10 minutes you can have it in the oven!

This recipe was adapted from the one my friend Fabiola Bedin has sent to me. The batter for this pie is made in the blender and all you need to do is pour it over the pie filling and pop it in the oven. It is really that simple!

You can eat it for lunch, dinner, or snack.

I also like it because you can pretty much use whatever you want as a filling. For this one I used cheese, sausage, sweet corn, pea, parsley, green onions and olives.
