Amazing Afghan Chicken

Amazing Afghan Chicken by John Spottiswood

This recipe, known as Murgh in India, is amazingly flavorful and a real crowd pleaser. I served two BBQ chicken recipes for July 4th, my father-in-law's Chinese Barbecued Chicken (linked below) and this new dish. The kids mostly ate the sweeter Chinese version, but the adults split about 50-50 in terms of their favorites. I saw…

Coriander Sauce

Coriander Sauce by John Spottiswood

This is a common feature on Afghan tables and also similar to the coriander sauce you frequently find in north Indian restaurants. It's also common in Georgian cuisine. Serve it on top of the Chile-Coriander Chicken, or as a side to any grilled meat or vegetable. It is awesome!

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. This recipe, culled from 2-3 that I found online, is no exception. It's a bit full bodied, almost like a stew, compared to others I have had. I loved…

Eggplant stuffed with tomato and garlic - Iman Bayeldi

Eggplant stuffed with tomato and garlic - Iman Bayeldi by John Spottiswood

The Turkish name for this recipe means "The Priest Fainted". I think the idea is that it tastes so good it made the priest faint. Anyway, it really is that good and pretty healthy too! This recipe was provided by Brian Bedrosian -- http://www.cookeatshare.com/chefs/brianb-208. Hopefully, with a little prodding from others too,…

Eggplant and Peas Stew

Eggplant and Peas Stew by John Spottiswood

This recipe was invented by my good friend Brian Bedrosian. He recommends that you "Should drink red wine while cooking and eating for best results." I haven't tried this one yet...but every other Armenian concoction I've tasted of Brian's has been outstanding!

An Armenian delicacy, these cheese and phyllo turnovers are certain to be a big hit at your next cocktail party. My sister and I grew up with our mother making these for special occasions... and while they are somewhat labor intensive, the reward is in the finished product. Simply delicious!

Armenian Red Lentil Balls - Vospov Kheyma

Armenian Red Lentil Balls - Vospov Kheyma by John Spottiswood

Traditionally, Kheyma is a made with meat (raw beef patty). However, during Lent many Armenians prefer Vospov Kheyma as a vegetarian alternative. Our friends the Bedrosians brought these over as an appetizer last night. He said it was a bit spicier than his mother usually made, but we all thought they were perfect. If you want less…
