Pav Bhaji

Lisa was determined to make pav bhaji, a mashed vegetable curry, after our friend Krishna made it for an Oscar party earlier this year. We love recipes like this where you can eat a lot of volume and still keep the caloric intake low (it’s all vegetables!). Lisa followed this recipe, but halved the oil and tweaked the vegetables a little.

Grape Leaves and Fattoush

Lisa made this delicious dish tonight.
Grape leaves, zucchini, and squash stuffed with a mixture of ground beef, rice, and various spices, a garlic and yogurt dipping sauce, and fattoush, a Lebanese bread salad with a lemon and olive oil dressing.

She based it primarily on a family recipe, with a few modifications from the wonderful Complete Armenian Cookbook and Secrets of Healthy Middle Eastern Cuisine.
