Lahmeh bi 3ajin 

Have I mentioned just how much I love Lebanese cuisine? 

The delicious meals full of flavour are divine! 

Here I made ‘Lahme bi 3ajin’ also known as a pastry topped with meat. 

With a yummy side of ‘Tabouleh’ .

I also made mini bite size pieces for my daughter school lunch box, they absolutely loved them! 

Give my ‘easy’ & ‘quick’ version of this classic Lebanese dish a try- you will not be disappointed ☺️
