425. Iraqi Chicken with Red Rice

It is the different ways simple and wholesome ingredients are used that really deserve praise for creativity.
If anyone, it is the Iraqi cuisine that does just that.

422. Liver Salad

Despite the relentless summer heat, we still choose to break our Ramadan fast with a soup.

411. Iraqi Kubba Yachni Tashreeb

This Iraqi tashreeb is substantial enough to be a meal on its own.Some call it a soup, which it would be had there been only kubba. Others call it white tashreeb or stew, but that is usually only with meat, barring the kubba.

410. Iraqi Aubergine Kubba Tepsi

The Iraqi term tepsi simply means casserole. You know, that one pot dish that is baked in the oven and presented in the same dish it was cooked in.
