3. The Hummus Theory is a great blog for nourishing dishes from Palestine. We've been following Diala for years and are big fans of the simple, fresh salads and plates she creates. Muttabal is an easy dip or spread from smoked eggplants that can often be found on Palestinian tables and is a great addition for an Iftar table! Be sure to follow her on IG for a delicious journey.

4. Palestine in a Dish's Wafa is a food blogger by day and children's book author by night. She creates fantastic dishes from her beloved Palestine. She has a simple and traditional recipe for Lentil Soup, which is on so many Palestinian tables throughout the year and especially during Ramadan. Follow her and enjoy the good food!

5. Most people make their Maqloube with chicken these days but many love it with lamb or even vegan. In our home, we always make it vegan and use chickpeas. Falasteeni Foodie has a lovely recipe with perfect spices for this delicious Palestinian dish that you'll find on every table (though usually with chicken!) during Ramadan. You'll love this dinner and you'll love following her!
