Nice and healthy but didn't list number of servings which makes nutrient analysis difficult.

Hello from Germany!

I am mad about turkish food and was really happy to find your blog. I own several books about turkish kitchen but most of the recipies need much effort. As far as I can consider it now, all your dishes are really perfect for daily life.
I have just tried the Piyaz and it was really great!

Best regards! Iyi aksamlar!
