Mezze Madness

Mezze Madness Collage

This week we're going mad for Ottolenghi Mezze.  Mezze can be a single appetiser, or a whole spread of appetisers or small plates, and such dishes lie at the very heart of Middle Eastern food.  Popular mezze include hummus, baba ghanoush (a burnt aubergine puree), tabouleh and much more.

Whether you feel inclined to share just one mezze dish, or go all out and make a feast of it, you'll be sure to love this week's Mezze Madness.  Choose a Yotam Ottolenghi dish (or several of them) from any one of his books, or online sources, and post your Mezze Madness recipe(s) by Sunday 4 August.

Don't forget to link your dish, as well as a thumbnail image, below.  Please remember to leave a comment after you link so that we don't miss out on your dish.

I'm the only one in the family who likes beets but I made the beet-yogurt dip anyway. It was delicious!

I was craving hummus this week so I tried his Basic Hummus with a few changes. ;-) Excellent!

Just posted my mini turkey and zucchini burgers. We really loved them! I can't wait to make my rounds and visit everyone tonight. I'm behind on commenting, but hope to catch up later tonight.
