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…

Hummus

Hummus by Frosted Flaker

This is a great snack for any time of year. I personally serve it with Kalamata olives and sometimes even diced cucumber and/or bell pepper. Keep in mind that after blending, fine-tuning the mixture with slightly more tahini and/or lemon juice is often needed (see step 3). As a footnote, tahini is what gives the hummus its creamy…

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…

Bulgur and Bean Salad

Bulgur and Bean Salad by Salad Foodie

Bulgur is classified as a whole grain and makes a healthy and satisfying vegetarian meal or a side to grilled meats. We like the light nutty flavor it lends to recipes. I always keep #2 medium grind bulgur on hand whenever tabbouleh, pilaf or salads such as this beckon me. To enjoy the best array of flavors this salad has to offer,…

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.)
