Mercimek Köftesi – As a light meal or a snack, these bulgar and lentil treats do the trick!

Tavuk (Chicken) Döner – In  this recipe I give 4 easily to follow 20-minute meals using frozen Chicken Döner: Iskender, Italian Saute, Chinese Doner, and Philly Style Chicken Doner Cheesesteak Hoagie!
(UPDATE:  This product has become increasingly difficult to find.  I only see the one that is smothered in a reddish spicy sauce and I don’t like it as much.  Please let me know if you find the orignal elsewhere.)

Zeytinyagli Pirasi (Leeks in Olive Oil – I love this recipe of leeks, carrots and rice.  I add fresh thyme for a little kick!
