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!

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.

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.

Iranian Cotlet

Iranian Cotlet by LK

This has to be one of my favorite Persian dishes and definitely a comfort food for me. Traditionally made with ground beef and various spices, my mom makes her own version of these cutlets with ground turkey that is crispy on the outside while still being soft on the inside. Makes great leftovers especially if you put it in a pita…

Pita & Lavash Chips

Pita & Lavash Chips by Bob Vincent

These are quick and easy to make. They go well with Hummus as a snack or appetizer. Serve them along side Middle Eastern dishes to add some crunch to the meal. I used whole wheat from Trader Joe's but if you are able to make your own that would be even better. Using cooking spray to bind spices to the chips makes them low in…
