Perfect lasagna by Ena

I have a secret to share with you. I did not like classic meat lasagna. It was simply not tasty to me, so I always make spinach lasagna. However, I did not share this secret with my Ena. But Ena’s lasagna is completely different from anything I’ve ever tried. I ate a portion in one breath and, of course, immediately asked Ena to share the recipe with Chakula readers. Ena says that her recipe came from constantly listening about complications on making lasagna. However, she makes them in a very simple way at least once a week for family...

Three different and quick proposals for iftar

The month of Ramadan began last week. For all of you who fast, after a busy working day, I believe that it is sometimes challenging to prepare a healthy and delicious meal for iftar, without spending hours in the kitchen. It is certainly important that after an all-day fast, food for iftar is not difficult for the stomach. My suggestion is seafood in 3 ways: salmon with vegetables, tuna file with bulgur wheat and pasta with seafood. You do not need more than 30 minutes to prepare each of these dishes. And seafood is In season in May, so it’s...
