Berlin is the capital of Turkish food (outside of Turkey of course :). I like that they use lots of veggies and surprising taste combinations and it has become one of my favorite cuisines over the years. There are two things that I always always have to order whenever we go to a Turkish restaurant: humus and eggplant cream, oh and Ayran, but that is a drink so it doesn't really count. On a particularly cloudy afternoon I decided to make my own eggplant puree and while it was tasty, I must admit that it was definitely not the best of the best! I was a little bit confused with the recipe as there are so many different ones out there. (with milk, with yogurt, with seeds, with flour...etc) I went with what I thought would be the healthiest, taste the best and took the least time to prepare. Next time however, I'm definitely trying a new one. If you have a tried and tested aubergine cream recipe hook me up and I'll be thankful forever. :)
Happy weekend blogland!
