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…

Moroccan Style Lamb with Eggplant

Moroccan Style Lamb with Eggplant by John Spottiswood

This is another great recipe from the best of the San Francisco Chronicle. The combination of the lamb and eggplant with the rich and wonderful lemon infused sauce is just amazing. Meaty lamb shanks or leg meat are cooked in aromatic liquid before being roasted over slices of eggplant. I think the original recipe over weighted the…

There isn't a side dish that offers a fresher taste than tabouli. The lemon, the parsley...they clean your mouth with garden fresh flavors. Healthy, filling and such a reward to have next to your favorite entree.

Toasted Couscous Pilaf

Toasted Couscous Pilaf by Farrell May Podgorsek

Israeli couscous makes a great hot pilaf and goes well with so many dishes. This is my husband's favorite grain side dish. I know it's more of a pasta, but we think of couscous as a starch, but not like pasta. The spices can be varied to change the flavor. It is quick and easy, and popular with kids. You can make this vegetarian by…

Serve them in a flatbread or pita with pomegranate sauce. You can saute these meatballs or thread them on a skewer and grill them. Be sure to make the…
