I found 4 recent ones and tried to move them over but it didn't work - there are two recent ones left but we are looking into the other 4 before i move them over.

But yes all previous recipes were lost during a former site update @AmberHeart

  • 8 oz. chickpeas (soaked overnight)
  • 8 oz. peas (fresh or frozen)

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Rinse the rice thoroughly and drain for 30 minutes.
  2. Boil a large amount of water in the bottom of a couscous maker (or double boiler).
  3. Place all the ingredients and spices in a large bowl and mix well so that everything is well blended with the spices, herbs and olive oil.
  4. When the steam escapes from the holes of the couscoussier, place all the mixture.
  5. Make a small hole in the center, cover and cook, stirring gently from time to time until the chickpeas become tender. Cook for about an hour.
  6. Arrange in a dome shape in a serving dish. Decorate with fried green hot peppers and enjoy hot.
RECIPE NOTES
  • This recipe can also be prepared with seafood (without liver), or beef, or chicken, instead of lamb.
