Happy 2015! It's a new year and with that come resolutions to get healthy, which none of you have had any problems keeping up to this point in mid-January. But just in case you're strapped for a few ideas on what to eat to help you stay the course, allow us to reacquaint you with some of our more popular dishes that are appetizing and packed full of nutrition!   Mjadra Mjadra is a dish that’s steeped in history and can actually be traced back to middle ages. Simple and delicious, it consists of green lentils, sliced onions, brown rice, jalapenos, and a mixture of middle eastern spices. We stew them all together and then top it off with crispy onions and avocado. It’s one of our most loved dishes and, conveniently, also one of our healthiest as it was recently named one of the best dishes you can order in Vancouver by the St Paul’s Hospital Healthy Heart Program. So next time you’re at Nuba, be sure to give Mjadra a try and experience firsthand why it’s been making people healthy and happy for 1000 years!
