Dad Cooks

Dad made a couple of delicious meals this week: the Red Snapper Veracruz and salad (home-grown) pictured above, and Lahmajoun.

The Lahmajoun is a sort of Middle Eastern lamburger. We used that ground lamb Lawson bought at the Caravan market, which was very lean and wonderful.


½ pound lean ground lamb
½ onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon oregano
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes

Mix together and spread on:

4 whole wheat pita breads

Top with:

4 ounces crumbled feta cheese
¼ cup pine nuts

Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. Garnish with parsley. We served these with a dill/yogurt sauce on the side.
