Recently, Chef Bakhos Mjalleh was on CBC Vancouver talking all about mjadra, our healthy and delicious lentil dish. The article is copy-pasted below or you can read it on the CBC site here.
f you're ever been to one of Vancouver's Nuba restaurants, you've probably tried or have heard of the much-loved Najib's Special.
The Lebanese-rooted recipe calls for deep frying cauliflower to a golden brown and tossing it with lemon and a sea salt.
Just thinking about it is saliva-inducing for some — and by some, I mean this reporter who now has a serious cauliflower craving.
But Nuba chef Bakhos Mjalleh wants us Vancouverites to branch out and try something else.
He recommends the dish Mjadra.
"It tastes like a combination of caramelized onions, the slight heaviness of the lentils and the smoothness of the rice," said Mjalleh.
"We overcook the brown rice to give it the smoothness of risotto but we keep the firmness of the lentils."
The chef, who moved from Lebanon just three years ago, says he recognizes that diners in his new home tend to be health conscious.
He believes his recommendation is both tasty and does the body well.
"Najib's by itself is not a full meal," he said.
"You need protein."
Mjalleh says the "simple" dish of Mjadra, or as it's traditionally known in the Middle East as mujaddara, is often eaten as a meal after fasts or by those abstaining from meat.
Like deep-fried cauliflower, he says it's considered a staple.
"In each house in Lebanon, or in Levantine cuisine ... it's always available on the table," he said.
"It's widely widely famous and loved by the locals."
What he loves now, is sharing a piece of his traditions with those who make their way into Nuba's dining rooms.
