An Appetizer… Thank you for voting!

September 25th, 2010

Hi everyone! Thank you so much for voting for me! I made it to the second round of Project Food Blog.

I have been working on the next challenge… tomorrow I’ll unveil my Classic Ethnic Dinner…

Now just a little appetizer… Sabzi Khordan and Alounak’s Persian Flatbread that I found in Crazy Water Pickled Lemons.

Sabzi Khordan
equal bunches of cilantro/tarragon/mint/basil, chopped
1 bunch of radishes, sliced
1/2 red onion, chopped
8 oz. feta, crumbled
olive oil

Mix it all together. Eat with Alounak’s Persian Flatbread.

Alounak’s Persian Flatbread

1 tsp. dried yeast
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 cup lukewarm water
9 oz flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
olive oil

1. Proof the yeast with the yeast, sugar and a little water for about 15 minutes.
2. Stir in the dry ingredients. Add a little water at a time until it comes into a ball. (I used maybe only 1/2 cup of water in total).
3. Knead the dough for 10-15 minutes until smooth and elastic. Place in a greased bowl and leave it to rise for 1 1/2 hours.
4. Set oven to at least 450 and place a baking sheet in it.
5. Once the dough as risen, divide in four balls. Roll into dinner plate sized portions using a rolling pin. Stretch a little more with you hands. Leave them to proof for a half an hour.
6. Grease the baking pan with olive oil. Prick the dough with a fork. Place on baking sheet for 3-5 minutes. The bread will puff up.
