Mixed Vegetables with Beef


Click to enlarge
1 medium size eggplant, cut bite size
3 medium size white potatoes, cut in pieces
1 small zucchini, in chunks
1 medium size onion, sliced
2 garlic cloves, sliced
3 fresh green onions, cut in pieces
1 cubanelle pepper, chopped
1 large tomato or 2 tbsp crushed tomato
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
4-5 tbsp medium ground beef or 1/2 cup cube beef
Black pepper

Soak the eggplant pieces in water with salt for 15 minutes. After taking them out, squeeze the eggplants to get rid of the water inside.

Cook the ground beef or cube beef in a pot. Then wash and cut all the ingredients above. Add in the potatoes, onion, salt and pepper and a cup of water. Cook for about 15 minutes on medium heat. Add the rest of the ingredients and continue cooking for another 20-25 minutes. If necessary, add more hot water.

Serve as a main dish with rice on the side (for example, Rice with Orzo).

Saturday, March 26, 2005


1 cup bulgur wheat, large grain
60 ml olive oil
1 onion, diced
1-2 tbsp tomato paste
1 lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp cumin

First put the bulgur in a large bowl and pour two cups of hot water on it (it should stay like this for 5 minutes). Meanwhile in a medium sized pot, place the onion and olive oil. Cook until the onions turn light brown. Add the salt, tomato paste, lemon juice and cumin.

Then wash and drain the bulgur, and mix it into the pot with a wooden spoon. Cook for about 10 minutes on medium-low heat. Afterwards, cover the lid and set aside for it to cool down.

When it's cold, add in the following:

3-4 tomatoes, diced
4-5 fresh green onions, diced
1 cup chopped parsley

Toss and serve. This recipe goes well with Ayran. Keep refrigerated as Kisir is best served cold.

* This is a vegetarian dish.

Pilaf with Orzo

(Sehriyeli Pilav)

Pilaf with Orzo
3/4 cup long-grain rice
3 tbsp orzo (check the pasta aisle)
1 cup hot water or chicken stock
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp salt
Pinch pepper

Wash the rice several times with warm water and drain. Then cover the rice with hot water and leave for about 15 minutes, then drain. Place the orzo in a medium sized pot. Stir continuously on medium-low heat, until the colour turns light brown. Add the butter and rice in the cooking pot. Saute the rice with butter for 2-3 minutes while stirring. Pour 1 cup of hot water or chicken stock in it. Add salt and pepper. Turn the heat to low and cook until the rice absorbs all the water.

Take the cooking pot away from the heat. Open the lid, place a clean kitchen towel across the top of the pot on the rim and put the lid on it. Let the Pilaf stand for about 5 minutes. We call this brewing time. Then serve.

Grape Leaf Rolls

(Yaprak Sarmasi)

Grape Leaf Rolls
1 lb grape leaves, washed one by one

1 1/4 lb medium or regular ground beef, uncooked
1/2 cup rice, washed and drained
1/4 cup water
50 ml extra virgin olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped or grated

3 tbsp crushed tomatoes
60 ml butter, diced

Mix all the filling ingredients in a bowl with a tablespoon. Fill a large pot half way with water and boil. Add in all the leaves and boil for about 2-3 minutes. Drain, then cut off the stems (picture). The matte (not shiny) side of the leaf is the inside, that's where the filling will go. Grab a leaf (picture) and fold the top where the stem was as shown in this picture. Put the leaf into your palm and use a teaspoon to put filling on it (picture). First fold over the top (picture), then the two sides (picture) and roll to close it up (picture).

Line up all the rolls in a large pot tightly, without big holes in between (picture). Spread the garnish on top. Put a small plate upside down over the rolls - this is to prevent the rolls from unfolding while being cooked. Then pour in a cup of water (picture). Cook on medium-low heat for 20 minutes. Add 1 1/2 cup of hot water, and cook for another 15 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes, then serve with Yogurt with Garlic Sauce.

1 cube beef bouillon
1/2 cup rice, washed and drained
2 cups yogurt
1/2 cup milk
1 egg yolk
1/2 cup flour
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp dry mint

In a large pot boil the water, rice, salt and bouillon. Cook on medium high, until the rice is done.

Meanwhile in a bowl, mix yogurt, milk, egg yolk and flour. After the rice is cooked, take a few spoons of liquid from the pot and mix into the bowl. Then slowly pour your mixture into the pot while stirring very slowly. Cook for 10 more minutes on low heat.

Place the butter in a frying pan. When it begins spitting, stir in the mint and pour into your soup.

Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.

Tuesday, March 22, 2005


1 clove of garlic, minced with salt
1 cup cucumber, diced
1 1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 cup water
Extra virgin olive oil
Fresh dill, chopped

Place the garlic, yogurt and water in a medium sized bowl. Mix with a wooden spoon until it is blended very well. Add diced cucumber and mix again. With a ladle pour into small bowls and then add 1 tbsp of olive oil on top of each. Garnish with fresh dill.

Cacik goes very well as a side dish with white beans, rice or chickpeas.

Sesame Seed Rings

(Susamli Simit)

Sesame Seed Rings
125 ml salted butter (room temperature)
125 ml unsalted butter (room temperature)
50 ml extra virgin olive oil
4 tbsp Turkish plain yogurt
1 tsp baking powder
3 cups flour (use fine strainer)
1 egg yolk
1 tsp mahlep

Sesame seed
1 egg white

First, pre-heat the oven to 375 F (190 C). Put all the ingredients in a large plastic bowl. Use your hand to mix them well. Grab some dough the size of a little ball and shape it like a ring, with the diameter being approximately 2 inches.

First dip (only one side) in the egg white then in the sesame seed. Place on a baking tray. Repeat for the remaining dough and then bake for 30-35 minutes or until the tops take a light pink colour. This recipe will make 36 pieces.

Best served with tea or milk.

Mahlep is obtained from the fruits of the Idris Tree. It is used in a variety of dishes including Kandil Simidi. It also keeps the food fresh and makes it brittle.

Zucchini Pate


Zucchini Pate
1 medium size zucchini, washed
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
2-3 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup parsley, chopped
1/2 cup fresh dill weed, chopped
1 tbsp flour
2-3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 2 eggs
1 tsp baking powder
Black pepper

First grate zucchini and then squeeze with your hands to get the water out. Then add all the ingredients above, with the egg going in last (as it makes the mixture watery quickly). Mix with a wooden spoon.

Pour some sunflower oil in a large skillet, about 1 cm deep. When the oil warms up, take a lump of the mixture (a couple large spoons' worth) and put in the skillet. Fry each side approximately 3 minutes at medium-high heat. When done, put the pieces on a plate with a paper towel to soak up extra oil.

Serve with a bit of yogurt on top of each piece - yogurt with garlic especially goes well. Mucver can also be a great sandwich for lunch:) I highly recommend it.

* This is a vegetarian dish.

Sweet Butternut Squash

(Kabak Tatlisi)

Click to enlarge
500 gr butternut squash
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp water
Crushed pistachio nuts

Cut the squash in chunks a bit larger than bite-size. Place them in a large pot. Add sugar and water. Cook on low-medium heat for approximately 30 minutes without the lid on. You'll know they're done when the water has been mostly drained and the colour of the squash darkens and they looks somewhat shiny.

Place on serving plate and let cool, then garnish with the pistachio nuts and serve.

Pilaf with Lamb

(Etli Pilav)

Pilaf with Lamb
2 lamb shanks
1 cup rice
4-5 fresh green onions, cut into little pieces
2 medium size tomatoes, diced
Salt, pepper
30 ml. butter, diced

First, place lamb shanks in a medium sized pot. Cover with water and cook on medium-high for 35-40 minutes. When finished, separate the meat, discard the bones, strain and put aside the remaining stock for use later.

Place washed, uncooked rice in a large skillet (not a pot). Put the lamb pieces between the rice equally. Put tomatoes, green onions, butter, salt and pepper as well around the lamb. Then, take the stock from before and pour it over. The stock should be 1 3/4 cups, if not, you can add water. Keep the lid half covered and cook on medium-low heat for approximately 20-25 minutes until the rice is cooked (water should be completely absorbed).

Suggested serving: With Shepherd's Salad.

Shepherd's Salad

(Coban Salatasi)

Click to enlarge
1/2 cup cucumber, diced
2 tomatoes, diced
1 cubanelle pepper
1/2 red onion, sliced
1/4 cup fresh mint
2 tsp lemon juice
2-3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
50 ml feta cheese, crumbled

Place all the vegetables in a medium size salad bowl. Add salt and pepper to liking. Add the feta, lemon juice and olive oil. Don't add any other dressings.

This salad goes very well with lamb dishes.

Sunday, March 13, 2005


Click to enlarge
3 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup water
1 tsp salt

This is very straight-forward but tastes great: Put all of the above in a blender. Mix for about 35-40 seconds. Pour into glasses. Also after blending, at the top, you will see bubbles and that's the best part. Makes 4 portions.

Origins of the word "yogurt":
The word comes from the Turkish word "yoğurt", deriving from the verb "yoğurtmak", which means "to blend" - a reference to how yogurt is made.

About this site

Me in our Dining Room
I am a Turkish housewife and mother who has been living in Canada since 1995. Somehow during my free time, I always find myself in the kitchen. I grew up in a traditional Turkish household and have been cooking traditional Turkish meals for decades.

In early 2005, my daughter and I thought it might be a good idea to post my recipes online, so that other people can be introduced to Turkish cuisine, which is one of the most varied and overlooked cooking styles. Since I moved to Canada, I've often wondered why no one knows much about Turkish cuisine in North America, considering that Turkish cuisine is the 3rd largest kitchen in the world in terms of variety, after Chinese and French.

So this is the result: Turkish Cookbook. I hope you will enjoy the delicious, healthy and simple-to-prepare dishes that Turkish cuisine has to offer. Usually our recipes are heavy on vegetables and grains, and the most commonly used meat is lamb. We have many seafood dishes as well since Turkey is surrounded by sea on three sides.

Please feel free to leave any comments, suggestions or questions here on the site, or you can email me directly at And make sure to check back often as I'll be adding recipes once or twice a week.

My daughter and I recently added a section for International Recipes that I've collected over the years as a result of living abroad for so long. Some of them we've enjoyed and others not. :) I decided to share the better recipes that are now a part of my repertoire.
