Ezme (4)

I made this delicious Turkish salad recently to accompany a Persian Sabzi Kuku but it would traditionally be served with Cacik and Turkish bread. This version is from ” Persiana” by Sabrina Ghayour.

Kleftiko Potatoes (4)

Here is another recipe for potatoes from Claire Thomson’s ” New Kitchen Basics”. The potatoes cook in the liquid soaking up the juices and turning soft and flavoursome. Any remaining oil should be spooned over the potatoes before serving.

Jalfrezi Peppers with Chickpeas (4)

Last nights supper was this easy curry from ” New Kitchen Basics” by Claire Thomson. She suggests serving with plain rice or Indian flatbreads, but i substituted couscous and that worked well. Either way accompany with some Indian chutney and/or pickles if you have them.

Tarragon Soup (6)

A delicious Georgian soup from ” Kaukasis The Cookbook” by Olia Hercules.. Both the rice and the eggs are optional, but if you do use the eggs eat all the soup on the day of cooking.
