Lahmacun-style brick triangles

Yas! Geometrical meat! I don’t care much for bell peppers. Especially when they’re unpeeled I feel like they lack some kind of sophistication 💅 and dominate dishes too easily. However mixing them finely in this lahmacun-style filling with onion, minced lamb and the earthy taste of flatleaf parsley works really well for me. The magic is,…

Fried tandoori chicken burgers

Ottolenghi’s tandoori paste is a joy to make, smell and taste. It’s of course much more refined than store-bought tandoori paste, and since we’re using A LOT OF TANDOORI here, I suggest you make your own. I also made my own small slider-sized buns but the burgers fit larger buns as well (or fit them…

Braised lamb, eggs, asparagus ribbons

After discovering shakshuka, thanks to the king Ottolenghi OBVIOUSLAYYY, I totally fell for the one-pan-dish-finished-by-adding-eggs-idea.

Just make sure you get the sour/spice…

Veal meatball carbonara

This is a meatball & mushroom twist on the matter. Cuz meatballs. For two (if you eat with a shovel, like me): 300g ground…

For two: 1 steak (I used a 200g piece of Irish ribeye) 1 cucumber 1 bunch of coriander 1 handful of radishes 3 romaine lettuce…

Pulled lamb quesadillas

Pulled meat is situated in the capital of comfort food: packed with taste, sweet barbecue sauce, juiciness and crunchy pieces AND you can eat it with a spoon, shoving massive amounts of comfort right into your existential distress. Plus: let’s combine this with melted cheese. Pulled lamb the rub: 1,5 kg boneless lamb shoulder 3 T brown…
