Western Style Magloba


Wasting money by throwing away meat?

Magloba is a decadent Arabian dish made from juicy cuts of meat, a variety of vegetables and fragrant spices.

Leftover meat is a problem for the pocket and the planet. For the energy and resources that are used to produce meat, and the environmental damage caused by its waste, we should make the most of it and throw away less. The magloba is by Federica Frattini, from Podere San Giuliano, San Lazzaro in Savena.
