Cook the Book Kate Williams 5 comments

Lahmacun are Turkish flatbreads rolled up around a tomatoey lamb mixture, sprinkled with pepper flakes and topped with a spritz of lemon juice. They're a cousin of larger, milder pides, most often known as Turkish pizzas. More

Sunday Supper: Mediterranean Chicken, Feta, and Herb Wrap With Stewed Potatoes

Sunday Supper Jennifer Olvera Post a comment

This one-pot dish does double-duty. Slow-cooked chicken thighs simmer in a white wine broth with potatoes that are ultimately served as a side. The meat, when pulled, is tucked into warm pita bread that's finished with salty feta and a shower of parsley, cilantro and mint—just the right kind of restorative for dreary winter days. More

Make-Ahead Chicken-Feta Meatballs With Chive Yogurt and Carrots

Serious Eats Suzanne Lehrer 1 comment

Meatballs don't always evoke thoughts of a quick, satisfying meal, but these ones should: no milk-soaked breadcrumbs, searing, or homemade tomato sauce necessary. Crumbled feta and one egg add plenty of moisture and flavor to ground chicken and quick-sautéed spinach, flavored simply with paprika and salt. More

A Sandwich a Day: Chicken Breast Shish Kebob at The Athenian Room

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 1 comment

Though not nearly as ubiquitous as a gyros, grilled chicken on a pita is a standard menu item at loads of restaurants in Chicago. But whereas I've come to appreciate the mass-produced meat on occasion, grilled chicken never works. Except, that is, at The Athenian Room. More

This is a sandwich version of a go-to dish I make when I'm tired: chorizo, shrimp, chickpeas. Quick and easy, made with ingredients that have a long shelf-life, and there's only one skillet to clean up. More

Good Bread: My Favorite Loaves in New York

New York Andrew Coe 5 comments

I can't get through the day unless I have a couple of slabs of good bread, toasted and smeared with cream cheese and jam, along with my morning coffee. For me, "good bread" has to be fresh, with a great aroma; I have a great appreciation of all the dense breads out there. More

I can't believe I've never heard of this sandwich before. The Israeli specialty pairs fried eggplant with hard boiled eggs, hummus, a fresh salad, and some kind of spicy component. As soon as I read about it, I knew I had to have it. More

A Sandwich a Day: Sujok Pita at Al Safa

New York Caroline Russock 2 comments

Although I'd never heard anything about Al Safa in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, when I walked in I just knew that it was going to be good. Scanning the menu, I was intrigued by the Sujok Pita ($5) described as hot spiced ground beef and lamb sausage. More

Dinner Tonight: Charred Eggplant Salad

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

"Somehow, the eggplant comes off with a distinct smoky aroma that you'll swear must have been cooked over charcoal." [Photograph: Nick Kindelsperger] Eggplants always amaze me. They're my favorite vegetable to cook with since they can be manipulated in such... More
