So easy, even a child can make it! This is actually true. It is a very easy recipe, and the only cooking you'll do is bringing a cup and half of water to a boil. Here is a fresh and lovely wheat-based salad recipe that promises to be neither bland nor watery. Bulgur is a precooked, dried wheat that you will surely be able to find in the bulk area of a natural foods store, and in the natural foods area of a supermarket.
Like spanikopita without the spinach, borek is a transcendently flaky experience. Don't let the phyllo intimidate you.
The lemon makes this Middle Eastern dip vibrant, while the hot water keeps it dreamily creamy.
Rather than a heavy, fried falafel, here's an updated
version of this pocket sandwich: a light chickpea patty served in
a whole-wheat pita with a flavorful but light tahini
The acidity of the yogurt helps tenderize the chicken and
keep it moist. If you can't find hot paprika, substitute 2
teaspoons sweet paprika and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne.
This easy recipe makes a delicious dip for warm wedges of pita bread or a great sauce for vegetables.
For a healthy snack, thick slices of cucumber topped with delicious homemade hummus are the perfect combination.
This chopped salad is fabulous even without the pita chips, which push it into sublime territory. Delicious and healthy, Turkish cuisine is perfect everyday family food.
Give dessert a Middle Eastern flavor with this fragrant pudding. It's the perfect finale to a meal of Turkish dishes like shepherd's salad, feta pastry, mini burgers, and hummus.
