48: Greek Burgers w/ Homemade Pita Bread & Tzatziki Sauce

Of all the bread recipes I’ve ever made, Pita Bread has the be the easiest. Sure, you have to roll it out, let is rest for 5 minutes, and then flop it onto a cake-rack (I used a clean BBQ’s rack). This recipe makes 5, 6-7″ pita and you only use half of one for each burger. We’re making hummus next so we can wipe the rest out. You can freeze them, but they’re usually last about a week in the fridge.

Recipe 35: 5-Minute Hummus

Garnish with paprika, parsley, and a bit of olive oil...

Hummus is really easy. So easy that I now refuse to buy the preservative-laden store variety. It’s a basic “pile everything into a blender and BOOM, you’re done” type of recipe. We’re having a party tonight, so I figured it would make the perfect dip, and the ingredients are a cinch to keep on hand.

This is a double recipe ¬†especially for those times when you’re entertaining. It makes about a quart (4 cups) of deliciousness. If you want less, just half it to scale back to only 1 can of garbanzo beans.

Recipe 29: Indian Butter Chicken

Aaaaaaaand we’re back!

Hey all, thanks for the patience! Final exams are over and I can’t begin to express how much better my life is now! Woohoo!

Anywho, it’s time to come back with something truly yummy to (partially) make-up for my absence!

I’ve been trying to get this recipe right for a while now, as it’s one of my favorite Indian dishes.

Butter chicken is essentially small cubes of chicken breast simmered in a tomato/cream-based sauce. It’s heavenly with the scents of ginger and cinnamon, and though it traditionally is one of the milder Indian recipes I’ve tried, it can accommodate a healthy level of spicing up if that’s your style.

I hope you enjoy it!

Butter Chicken!
