As I was chopping mint for the below dish, I just had to stop - the light coming in from the sunset was just too gorgeous, streaming into my kitchen like some kind of movie. I thought I'd try to capture the beauty of my mom's kitchen design.
Oregano-Mint-Balsalmic Kofta Kabobs with a grilled vegetable and mint tabbouleh.
I was really in the mood for a salad...and grilling.
The salad has grilled zucchini, eggplant, mint, olive oil, and a touch of balsalmic. Topped with grilled portabello mushrooms and more mint.
I didn't spend nearly as much time on the presentation for these...as you can tell.
I grew up cooking with both my mother and father - the smells of our traditional Afghan cuisine wafting out of our kitchen were always the envy of our neighbors! Now I cook anything, but my specialty will always be Afghan.
I often don't cook with recipes - thus explaining the curious lack of them in my posts. But I can usually make a good guess as to what I put in something, so always - just comment if you want a recipe!
