Kofta b’siniyah

Kofta b’siniyah is hands down one of my favorite new recipes I’ve tried this year! The flavor combinations are so new and interesting – nutmeg, cinnamon, pinenuts, chilli pepper, etc. This recipe was recommended by a colleague who has been trying out recipes from the cookbook Jerusalem by Yotam Ottolenghi and Sami Tamimi. I had never had Israeli/Palestinian food before, but now I want to try more! Many of the ingredients for this dish I had in my kitchen from the Roasted Eggplant Pizza (tahini) and the Lentil “Meatballs” and Lemon pesto (pinenuts, parsley). I will definitely make this dish again!

To go with the Kofta b'siniyah, I made a cucumber tomato salad with yoghurt, garlic and dill and baked pita bread in the oven
