Middle Eastern dishes may sound incredibly exotic but many of the flavor combos you might be more familiar with than you may think.
Tips to Make Middle Eastern Dishes Kid Friendly:
Mix new ingredients in with old favorites– if your family has never had ingredients like lamb or eggplant before, they might be hesitant to try them. Start with ground lamb and mix it in with ground beef the first few times, the lamb will be less apparent and they can slowly become accustomed to it. I do the same with eggplant since my family isn’t a huge fan. I cut the eggplant smaller and use less the first few times I make a dish.
