Homemade Grilled Flatbread

Homemade Grilled Flatbread by John Spottiswood

I couldn't find any authentic pita bread or other flat bread at my local grocery store, so I decided to try grilling my own. It turned out to be really fun and not too difficult. And the taste was amazing. The hardest part was rolling out the dough (I doubled the recipe). Fortunately, I was able to do that while watching a playoff…

Tomato Rice Pilaf

Tomato Rice Pilaf by Mary Joseph

This originated as a Lebanese dish that my mom always used to make, I tweaked it a bit adding tomatoes and mint and leaving out the meat that it called for. If you're a cheese lover this would be amazing with crumbled French Feta mixed in.

Grilled Steak with Israeli - North African BBQ Rub

Grilled Steak with Israeli - North African BBQ Rub by John Spottiswood

Almost nothing tastes better on steak or lamb that is thick enough to slice than an Israeli or North African spice rub. I combined a bit of both in this rub, using the base from an Israeli Hawaij rub and adding coriander which is more commonly found in Moroccan rubs. The combination is phenomenal. You won't be disappointed!

Easy Persian Rice in a Rice Cooker

Easy Persian Rice in a Rice Cooker by John Spottiswood

Admittedly, this doesn't capture the crunch outside of the normal method of making persian rice. But if you are just looking for a fluffy and buttery rice to serve with a stew or tagine, this works wonderfully and is super easy.

Kofta (Kafta) Pita Sandwich

Kofta (Kafta) Pita Sandwich by Salad Foodie

Kofta is a recipe taught to me by Ahmad, a young man who lived with our family for two years. Kafta and Ahmad's Tabouli have become Middle Eastern standards in our family menus since then. I am sure ground lamb is the meat of choice for this creation, but we use a mixture of extra lean beef (85%) and ground turkey. I often season the…

Ahmad's Tabouli Salad

Ahmad's Tabouli Salad by Salad Foodie

There are many versions of Tabouli around, but this recipe was introduced to me by a young man from Lebonon who lived with us for a while. Several times a year the craving for this salad comes over me and I get the chopping board out! This recipe makes a large batch but I always give bowls of it away to friends and family, as…

Bulgur Pilaf

Bulgur Pilaf by Salad Foodie

Faster and easier to cook than rice, bulgur is a grain to consider for making pilaf. High in fiber and low in fat makes this side dish a healthful choice. Easily converts to vegetarian by omitting the chicken broth. (Medium to large grind bulgur will be best for this recipe.)
