Thanks for ordering!
Believe it or not, I used to be a very picky eater. And I mean PICKY. If food was touching, I wouldn’t eat it. If it had a sauce, I wouldn’t eat it. For the first twelve or so years of my life, I survived on a diet of white rice, plain pasta, chicken fingers, and peas. Ask my mom. I was a nightmare. Now, I’ll eat and cook just about anything. People change! My dad always says that variety is the spice of life- and he’s right. Tonight’s dinner brings a lot of variety- we’ve got sauces, salads, starches, and bread, and most importantly, the kofta. We teamed up with Big Picture Beef (check them out!) to bring you locally sourced grass-fed beef for these lovely little treats, and they came out AMAZING. In the pita with some baba ghanoush and hummus, by themselves, or chopped up in the rice- so many different ways to enjoy tonight’s dinner. We’ve got toasted orzo rice pilaf, marinated cucumber salad with dill and garlic yogurt, and two of our favorite condiments- baba ghanoush and hummus. Everything goes so well together, and has their own unique taste. Make sure to try every possible combination- you will not be disappointed. Get in there!
For the kofta:
Set your oven to low broil. Line a sheet tray with tinfoil, and broil the kofta for three minutes on each side.
For the rice pilaf:
Heat a large saute pan over medium high heat. Once it’s hot, add some olive oil (or butter!) and toss in the rice. Break it up a bit and let it fry until it’s nice and toasty.
For the cucumber salad:
Leave this one in the fridge until you’re ready for dinner. It’s best when it’s nice and cold!
Start with some rice and cucumber salad. Toss a couple kofta on your plate, and a few dollops of the baba ghanoush and chickpea hummus. Warm the pita in the oven for a few seconds so it’s nice and warm, and dig in! Like I said, try out every possible combination that you can make. Let us know which is your favorite 🙂
