Gluten Free Klaicha - Date Filled Cookies

Gluten Free Klaicha - Date Filled Cookies by The Blender Girl

Klaichas are a national treat from Iraq. Traditionally, they press them into special moulds similar to tabis, but I just press them with the prongs of a fork. I have used Rapadura sugar to sweeten the dough, and using rice, tapioca and buckwheat flours to make these treats gluten free and more like shortbreads. You could also use some…

Turkish Red Pepper & Walnut Dip

Turkish Red Pepper & Walnut Dip by John Spottiswood

I've had this appetizer numerous times at my favorite nearby Turkish restaurant, New Kapadokia. I finally made it myself for a number of guests and it was a big hit. Slightly sweet, slightly spicy, and very flavorful. I served it with high quality hummus and babaganoush, and the red pepper dip was the most popular. Give it a try!

Fish Tahini

Fish Tahini by John Spottiswood

This is a beautiful and tasty dish that I cooked for a group on a getaway weekend at a winery. I was inspired to cook this by the wonderful grilled fish dishes I had almost every night on the greek island of Kos just off the coast of Turkey. This recipe is a bit more elaborate than what I had in Greece, but it is truly delicious. I…

Warm Chickpea and Greens Salad by John Spottiswood

This was also a big hit at our weekend getaway. The combination of greens, chickpeas, and sumac with lemon and fresh mint is really to die for. People went back for seconds of this salad, which is saying something given how much other good food there was!

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…
