One of the many highlights of Syrian food is mezza, a generous spread of small dishes, mostly eaten without cutlery, using flat bread, lettuce or vine leaves to scoop up dips or to wrap around portions of colourful salads. Syrian dishes are mainly focused around this mezza concept and key ingredients in Syrian recipes include garlic, lamb, rice, chickpeas, fava beans, lentils, cabbage, cauliflower, vine leaves, olive oil, lemon juice, mint, pistachios, honey and fruits.
Jewel-like pomegranates are one of my favourite salad ingredients. That little pop of sweet tartness is a joy to eat with crisp greens and cucumber.
A beautiful vegetarian dish that showcases Syrian cuisine perfectly … aromatic spices, lemon, honey dressing and garlic yoghurt.
