Of late, this herby, nutty lebna log has been my go-to breakfast. Requiring no cooking, and minimal prep time, it is a major health kick for the body to boot. The basic strained yogurt recipe we used to also make lebna balls is rolled into a log, smothered in some roasted nuts and zaatar, then flanked by a side of briny olives and fresh parsley.

Straight off, I'll be honest: I had great expectations from this recipe and was just as greatly disappointed. Rommaniya (الرمانية الفلسطينية) is an ancient Palestinian recipe merging a lot of my favorite ingredients: lentils, aubergines, lemon, garlic, pomegranate molasses, and fresh pomegranate.

A smoked salmon bagel is what I would order every time without fail at a bagel bar. Thankfully, it is one of the simplest things to recreate at home. A classic smoked salmon bagel would consist of cream cheese, onion slices, and of course the smoked salmon and bagel. Customization to personal preferences cannot get easier than this.
