What's your favourite dish with them, Chris? Apart from eating them as they come, of course... I like some fresh beans and new potatoes with them.
Well, today, however, I ventured a bit farther out - trying some recipes from a new book. The Middle East it is.
Kebab'e Kubide - minced lamb kebabs. Lamb, eggs, onions, salt, pepper, cumin, coriander, cinnamon and a bit of sumak, not shown. Knead a dough, fix on skewers - you really should use broad ones, I had none, though, and grill.
On the side - sultan resat pilav - an aubergine pilav. Aubergines, onions, tomatoes, salt, pepper, rice, mint.
And, of course, jajig - yoghurt with cucumbers, garlic and mint.
And all together.
