My absolute favourite cuisine is Lebanese. I love the grilled meat, veg and breads, but most of all I love the dips. When I lived in London, I loved this place, especially their delicious wraps. Now that I’m back Up North there’s not as many middle eastern restaurants around – but please let me know if I’m missing something! I’ll post my recipes for hummus and moutabal (aubergine dip) soon – but in the meantime – here’s what happened the other week!
I love it when this happens – this really one of those ‘oh I just threw all these leftovers together and they tasted great’ a la Nigel Slater moments. Maybe.
Seriously yummy, very rich. Not Lebanese.
I’m entering it for the No Waste Food Challenge hosted on Elizabeth’s fabulous blog Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary, dealing as it does in leftovers. Head on over for more money saving magic – and for some dreamy photos of Shetland…
