Electric Pressure Cooker Stuffed Zucchini

Plate of Electric Pressure Cooker Stuffed Zucchini

Electric Pressure Cooker Stuffed Zucchini If you liked my Kabak Dolmasi Stuffed Zucchini recipe, you are going to love my Electric Pressure Cooker Stuffed Zucchini recipe.  Of course, the original recipe is great but this one is even better because you can prep it and forget it.   Since I was using the electric pressure cooker pan, I used a potato to wedge the stuffed zucchini in place.  While potato is not traditionally part of this dish, it sure made...

Kabak Dolmasi Stuffed Zucchini

Kabak Dolmasi (Stuffed Zucchini)

Kabak Dolmasi Stuffed Zucchini I bought some gorgeous zucchini and tomatoes yesterday at the Rainbow City Farmers Market.  They were both perfect for my Kabak Dolmasi Stuffed Zucchini.  The zucchini were bright green, gorgeous and straight.  It is important that the zucchini are uniform and straight.  This helps with even cooking.  I cooked the excess zucchini in the pan with the stuffed ones to give more flavor to the broth but you could always reserve them for another dish like Mücver...

Kol Böreği

Beef Kol Boregi

Kol Böreği Kol Böreği is one of my favorite types of börek.  It is a Turkish dish with many variations.  There are many regional specialties as well.  The fillings can be meat, cheese, leeks, potatoes, zucchini, and eggplant to name a few.   Laz böreği is made in the Rize region and it is made with an Ottoman-style milk pudding then sprinkled with powdered sugar. One of my other favorites is Talaş Böreği.  It is cubed lamb or beef with carrots, peas,...

Turkish Food Festival 2016

Turkish Tea and Turkish Coffee

Turkish Food Festival 2016 was held this past Saturday and Sunday, April 16th and 17th in Hoover, Alabama at the Istanbul Cultural Center.  It was the third annual event but this was my first time attending and it was very enjoyable.  I don't know how I missed it the past two years.  The picture above is the epitome of Turkish hospitality.  I am so disappointed because I got the email and names for the nice people serving the tea and unfortunately,...

Manti Inspired Fresh Made Spaghetti and Meatballs

  Manti Inspired Fresh Made Spaghetti and Meatballs   First and foremost, let me say this is not Manti!!!! Manti is a delicious Turkish dish that is best made when you have plenty of helping hands around.  It could be done alone but part of the fun of making Manti is spending the time stuffing the dough with the meat mixture while you chit-chat with your family and/or friends!  The best Manti in Turkey is from the Kayseri region.  My former...

Oven Roasted Pickled Lemon Chicken

Oven Roasted Pickled Lemon Chicken

Oven Roasted Pickled Lemon Chicken "Oven Roasted Pickled Lemon Chicken", bet I made your mouth water. Didn't I?  It is a proven fact that just saying lemon can cause your mouth to water.  I bought these pickled lemons on my last trip to Atlanta.  I had been wanting to try them for a while.  I had seen several Moroccan recipes using the pickled lemons and thought they sounded interesting.  The good thing about these pickled lemons is that the flavor...

Karniyarik

Karniyarik Karniyarik is a Turkish dish that literally means slashed belly.  The dish gets the name because the eggplant looks like a belly shape and then you cut it down the middle to stuff it.  It is one of my favorite eggplant dishes.  Karniyarik is delicious served with some rice and yogurt on the side.  Of course, you all know me by now, I would make that garlic yogurt instead.   Wow, just looking at that bite of Karniyarik, makes...

Kofte Patates aka Meatballs with Potatoes

You could even prepare it the night before, cover with aluminum foil, then just take out of the fridge while you are pre-heating your oven.  Then bake as directed and pair with a nice salad.  You will have dinner on the table in...

Tavuk Doner or Chicken Doner

As promised, here is my recipe for Tavuk Doner or Chicken Doner.  Considering I did not have a "real" doner machine from Turkey, I think the results were fantastic.  The chicken was tender and the spice was delicious.  If I would have had the real machine and the traditional sword-like knife that is used to cut the meat as it cooks, it would have been perfect.  There were no complaints and out of five pounds of a combination of breast...

Quick and Easy Puffy Pita Bread

A while back, I  bought a rotisserie   attachment for my charcoal grill from Wally World for only six bucks!  I have been chomping at the bits to try it out.  Of course the first thing that came to mind is to make doner.  Doner is a Turkish dish that is meat on a spit that is cooked vertically.  I will have to make a few adjustments because the rotisserie is horizontal, but I am sure it will turn out just fine.  Anyway to try...
