DSC_0024

In Turkish cuisine, it’s quite common to enjoy a main meal that doesn’t include meat. This vegetarian-friendly dish incorporates eggplant, olive oil, lemon, yogurt, and walnuts, all classic Turkish ingredients. Roasted chickpeas add a welcomed crunch and healthy dose of high-quality protein, with yogurt and walnuts also providing a protein boost. Serve this with a lightly dressed arugula salad and dolma for a balanced and fresh summer meal.
