Rice Dolma (Stuffed Cabbage and Vegetables)

Rice Dolma (Stuffed Cabbage and Vegetables)

  In case you were wondering, this is my all-time favorite Armenian dish! Rice dolma is what I would describe as "the food of the gods!" It's heavenly.  If you haven't tried it, then you are missing out on the most amazing palatable experience of your life! This is the rice dolma recipe that I grew up eating, seasoned with garlic, allspice, mint and lemon juice. The recipe was passed down to me from my mom, who learned it from her mom, who learned it from her mom and so on!  Earlier this year, my cousin Chrissie Tsaturyan shared her husband's family...

Spas Soup

Spas Soup

  Spas Soup, also known as Tanabour,  is a nourishing, comforting Armenian yogurt and barley soup.  Some families will prepare this soup if someone isn't feeling well, as it's believed to help cure colds and stomachaches.  Whether or not it truly has any healing power, the delicious rich taste mingled with the tender grains of barley, make this a wholly satisfying meal.   I personally love the onion, garlic and dried mint seasonings.  I also love to garnish my bowl of soup with Aleppo pepper and chopped fresh cilantro.  I tried other herbs, but cilantro is my personal preference. If you...

Vegetarian Chi Kofte

Vegetarian Chi Kofte

Growing up, I remember when the cousins got together for a casual lunch, our moms and grandmas would frequently prepare a simple raw lamb and bulgur dish we pronounced as "Gheyma" but which actually might be spelled "Kheyma" and is probably more commonly known as "Chi Kofte."  Eventually, as time went on, we began to question the wisdom of eating raw meat, and for better or worse, we eventually stopped the tradition of eating it altogether. Great memories of eating this dish have remained with me over the years, but I jokingly lamented that this dish would never find its way on my blog, since I felt I...
