Honey and Spice Eggplant/Aubergine

Posted on

Here’s the recipe. If I were to make this again, I think I’d replace the lemon juice with lime.

Mutabal

Posted on

The appearance of spring weather makes me want summery foods: meze and bread with cheese. I made mutabal for the first time, serving it with familiar favourites such as yoğurtlu havuç salatası.

Tagliatelle with Eggplant and Feta

I used both basil and mint for this dish.

Briam

Posted on

Here’s a recipe.  I adapted it to fit what I had. There’s a courgette/zucchini shortage, so I used less of this ingredient. Partway through the cooking I decided to add two extra tomatoes because I thought it needed more. I had an extra green bell pepper so I tossed that in, too. It is an extremely forgiving dish.

Briam can be eaten plain but it is also commonly served with feta. If you are not avoiding dairy the addition of feta does improve this dish but it is quite good without it as well.

Mushroom and Aubergine/Eggplant with Soy Sauce

Posted on

mushroom1

This is an extremely easy side dish. Simply chop mushrooms and aubergine/eggplant. Heat a little oil on high heat, then toss the vegetables so they sear rather than absorb too much oil. Turn the heat down to medium-high and add a lid. Stir periodically until the vegetables are soft. Remove the lid, add some soy sauce, and cook until the soy sauce is no longer visible.

Teff Wraps with Baba Ghanoush

Posted on

I made these wraps from teff and wheat flour, then spread them with baba ghanoush and filled them with sweet pepper, corn, carrot and cucumber. It’s another variation of the wrap and hummus theme.
