I made a mini mezze spread of grilled halloumi with chilli honey, chermoula baby aubergines and kisir. All of the dishes I made were simple to make and delicious, particularly the halloumi. Can’t wait to try more recipes from the book!
Just to be clear, I’m not reviewing the recipes or spice blends, which look and smell delicious; the recipes themselves look great too and I can’t wait to get stuck in. I’m leaving a 3 star review because I’m pretty disappointed that (a) the book has become a paperback - I much preferred the hardback format of the original books as they stay open better when following the recipes, and (b) the tin is now a cardboard box, which after a few months of use is going to be battered and fall apart! The tin was a lovely touch and made the kits a great gift; I am now very unlikely to buy any of these kits as Christmas presents, which is a real shame, as the curry kits were always very well–received
I need more practice at curling this up - it broke apart when I tried, so not the neatest! But this is really delicious, and looks like it was a lot more work than it actually was. Will definitely be making this again!
As usual very easy 1 pot cooking and turns out mezzin nom nom especially using a tagine there quite inexpensive
So easy and oh so tasty. first recipe from the new book but most certainly not the last. What a fabulous start
Easy Hummus was exactly what it said - EASY. Thankyou so much, I will never buy pre-made Hummus again. Very little oil and no preservatives too. What a wonderful book this is. It will be going with some Spinach Borani for a picnic lunch tomorrow. Fab!!!
Ten dish Mezze Legend feast for New Year's Even - we even used the sumac blend to infuse our vodka for some 'Sumac Martinis'!
We love Mezze legend. I ordered 4 of the tagine spice kits because they are so good, then topped up with extra tagine spice mix. We don’t have take away meals at the weekend anymore - no need when you have curry legend/Mezze legend/ taco legend! Fake away all the way for us!!
We had a Mezze Family FEAST with Falafel, Sumac Onions, Cabbage Slaw, Baba Ganoush, Hummus, Laffa bread, Green Beans, Stifado, Greek Salad, Amba Sauce, and Tahini Sauce. Enjoyed by me and my husband, our 2 girls, Maisy 6, Florence 2, and my Mum and Dad.
My daughters, Florence 2 and Maisy 6, enjoying our Mezze Feast. Falafal, Chicken Shawarma, Merguez, Baba Ganoush and lots of other sides from the Mezze Legend book.
Lamb Shish kebabs, sumac onion salad and cucumber yoghurt. Can’t believe how quick and easy these kebabs were! Tasted amazing!
It took a long time to cook but well worth the wait. So very Middle Eastern and simply gorgeous. We have now to decide what to have the second half with tomorrow. Something to look forward to.
Red cabbage and the fab recipe (p138). Made some Labneh (p48) to go with it and what a lovely new set of tastes. The red cabbage needed a deal more time than the white would have done but well worth the wait.
Yogurtlu Kebab (p101) + Mujadar (p160) made a great dinner + again tomorrow. the Mujadara was a real find. The Kebab we had eaten before in Turkey. Used Black lentils for the rice and added almonds to the kebab - just so good.
Boiling first was a great idea. Lovely colour and gently soft. Just perfect. I have loved Sumac all my long life since first in Persia many decades ago. This brings it all back.
No Pine nuts in the cupboard so used walnuts and they were great. All very tasty and so easy to make. Definitely will make this again - but there are so many amazing recipes that it is getting hard to choose.
So many great dinners from this book! Unofficially cooking our way through it, although the halloumi seems to have been made about five times! Charaimeh, shepherds salad, tsigareli, and some bulgur wheat.
This was my first attempt from the Mezze Legend. I was surprised how quick, easy and tasty it was! I think it may quickly become a favourite.
A really nice dish to do, so.easy to make meant that we could just set it going and forget. Simple ingredients meant we didn't need to buy anything in and great summer dish with the salad !
Mezze Legend Moussaka, Turkish bread & salad. Great family meal enjoyed by all. My 2 year old even demolished it!
From the mezze legend book. Tagine, garlic and chilli pickle, hummus and Turkish bread. The tagine was stunning. The hummus was excellent with the bread and some carrots for dipping and a four person serving lasted a couple of days. The pickle was good and so easy to do. Reeeeaaalllllyyyy enjoyed this meal
Everyone at home enjoys this one. Tasty without being chilli hot. Served with mujadara
Not the best picture, but I need to tell you all just how tasty & authentic the Moussaka recipe is! Its been added to the favourites list
