Sample recipes from The Weeknight Mediterranean Kitchen: 80 Authentic, Healthy Recipes Made Quick and Easy for Everyday Cooking
Everyone should have a go-to shawarma recipe that doesn't require having an upright spit in your kitchen. A loose interpretation of the New York Times version, my everyday shawarma is quick and easy to prepare and is one of those dishes where you dump the entire spice drawer into the recipe to infuse the meat with a deep savory flavor. Pair this with the Magical Herb Tahini Sauce and wrap it up in some crisp lettuce leaves or flatbread. This is also delicious shredded over Chopped Rainbow Salad with Crispy Lavash or Fennel Fattoush Salad with Pistachios.
I love a simple and powerful spice rub. If you have the time, marinate the chicken for as long as you can so the flavors can develop. Serve with pita bread or, for an even healthier option, serve with fresh crisp lettuce leaves along with spicy Easy Homemade Harissa Sauce or Magical Herb Tahini Sauce and Quick Pickled Vegetables
