    Not special

      Eaten on a warm Saturday evening, but this is typically a dish that is tasty at any time of the week. Despite the cutting and chopping work, it is free and easy to make, full of flavor and healthy for those who want something spicy!

      This can also be made in advance!

      There were four of us and we easily ate 2 kebab rolls per person!

      Preparation

      Kebabs:

      Finely chop the onion, garlic and chili peppers.

      Cut the stems from the bunch of coriander.

      Mix the minced lamb, finely chopped vegetables/herbs and spices together in a large bowl. Roll small koftas (rolls of about 4 cm)

      Fry them in a grill or frying pan until nicely browned.

      Sauce:

      In the meantime, make the sauce by mixing all the ingredients.

      Sumac is finely crushed sour berries, you can also replace this with lemon zest and some lemon juice. The sauce may taste fresh and sour.

      Salad:

      For the salad, cut the onion into half rings and place the rings in a bowl of cold water to remove the sharpness of the onion.

      Finely chop the mint, coriander and cut the cucumber and tomato into wedges.

      How do you eat it?

      Warm the Lebanese bread in the microwave. Take a Lebanese flat bread and put a tablespoon of sauce on it, divide the koftas lengthwise and add the salad, drizzle some more sauce over it and roll up the bread.

      This way everyone can decide for themselves how spicy or which elements you want more, less or not at all.

      Enjoy your meal!
