The earthy flavors of Khubeiza, a Palestinian dish made from the mallow plant


One large bunch of khubeiza (a species of native annual mallow)
One large onion
Olive oil

  • Directions:

First pick the khubeiza, throw out the old leaves and wash thoroughly.
Fry the finely chopped onion in a little olive oil on a medium flame, until it starts to become translucent.
Finely chop the bunch of khubeiza, including stalks and leaves.
Add to the onion, stir, cover and turn the flame right down.
Allow to steam in its own juice until tender, occasionally stirring and if necessary adding a few drops of water so it doesn’t stick.
Add salt and pepper to taste and serve as a warm salad with a good squeeze of lemon juice and homemade bread.
