Dinner Like a Canaanite

Today’s recipe was inspired by an ancient civililzation that lived in the land of Canaan near the eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Much of their food was plant based and of course at that time, all seasoned with natural herbs and spices. To date, the Mediterranean cuisine is said to be among the healthiest in the world.
