I would like to share the first börek recipe on my blog with you! Börek is a typical Turkish pastry made of thin yufka dough with different fillings. It is served for breakfast, lunch, dinner or as a snack. I have a recipe for a juicy and spicy börek with eggplants. The eggplant pastry tastes delicious and pairs best with a glass of Turkish black tea.
Tabbouleh is a light and fresh salad with bulgur, parsley, mint, pomegranate and vegetables. Its a recipe originally from Lebanon and Syria. It makes a great lunch with healthy ingredients. Parsley is a source for many vitamins (like vitamin k, c and a), minerals and antioxidants. Mint promotes your digestion and can also help with nausea and headache. And I think everyone knows how healthy pomegranates are, they are the source for many vitamins, minerals (iron, magnesium) and antioxidants.
I prepared it for the last New Years Eve buffet. It would also fit to any other occasion, like a garden party, for barbecue or just as a simple lunch.
In this season I see lots of cauliflower on the market and I never knew how to prepare it properly. Just cooking it in water is kind of boring, but I found another easy way to prepare cauliflower: as rice! Sounds strange? I thought so too, but the result was satisfying.
