The Imam Fainted
Eggplant stuffed with onion, garlic and tomato. There is a lot of hype about this dish, and the story goes that one Imam loved the dish so much that he fainted, either because he liked it so much, or because he heard they had run out of the oil to make it. I liked it, but I’m not sure I’d say it was swoon-worthy. It was good, just not amazing. Looking forward to trying a local version soon, to see if its just my cooking that’s disappointing!
Fried Cauliflower and Stuffed Mushrooms
This cauliflower dish is easy as: steam the cauliflower florets, coat in a basic flour+water batter, and fry. They are supposed to be served up with yoghurt sauce, but I just used salt and some chilli. The recipe had eggs, I just left them out.
Maybe not a particularly Turkish dish, but I love me a good stuffed mushroom, so I turned the last three in our fridge into yummy, lemony, morsels.
Red capsicums stuffed with rice. This was very similar to the stuffed cabbage dish, although this time I roasted them. I flavoured the rice with dried mint and other herbs.
