Southern Soul Deep Fried Alligator is about as American “Soul Food” as you can get. If you’re too squeamish about the idea of eating alligator meat, you can substitute pork or chicken. But for the real ethnic experience, hey – turn the tables on those man-eating amphibians and serve some up on the table.
Egyptian Rabbit Molokhia is as authentic an Egyptian recipe as you can find. It is traditionally served with plain white rice. Egyptian Molokhia is named after the primary vegetable ingredient of the same name. Molokhia is “Egyptian spinach” and it has a consistency that is a bit slimy, much like okra. The flavor of it varies greatly according to the method of cooking and the stock that used to prepare it. If you can’t find molokhia fresh where you live, don’t worry – the dish can be made just as effectively and as tasty using fresh, frozen, dried or preserved leaves.

You can also make wonderful Molokhia with beef, duck, or even chicken meat. However, if you want the true, traditional version, then go with this recipe for authentic Egyptian Rabbit Molokhia.
