Spiced Red Lentil Köfte
from Turkey recipes and tales from the road, Leanne Kitchen, Murdoch Books, 2011.
I keep dipping into this book, browsing through the pages and bringing back memories of Turkey. It’s a fascinating place to visit and has such an amazing history.
I’ve tried some recipes from the book but so far have not made anything that I would want to repeat. I’ve ignored all the meat or fish recipes and perhaps there are some of those that are good—but not for a vegetarian.
The spiced red lentil köfte fit into the so-so category as well. They were pleasant enough but not anything I would really care to make again.
They required Turkish pepper paste, which I was unable to get hold of so I replaced it with harissa. I’m sure that would not have much such a significant difference.
