Turkish Red Lentil Soup

Turkish Red Lentil Soup by John Spottiswood

I order this every time I go out for Turkish food. It is an amazingly flavorful and wonderful soup. It's always a little different wherever I have it, but it is always phenomenal.

One of the oldest dishes in Turkey. This dish is called paplajon even if it doesn't have eggplant in it it is called Patlican. Simple to cook, similar to one of our stews.

This recipe was provided by Brian Bedrosian -- http://www.cookeatshare.com/chefs/brianb-208. Hopefully, with a little prodding from others too,…

AUSHAK - AFGHAN RAVIOLI

AUSHAK - AFGHAN RAVIOLI by Linda Tay Esposito

Aushak is proof that Marco Polo made his way through that part of the world (I mean through the Hindu Kush, not Fremont!) enroute back from China. Aushak is traditionally made with beef - it's the Afghan version of…
