Tonight we went out for dinner at our local Mediterranean restaurant. They have the best falafel sandwiches but tonight we went for the mezza-style dinner (small plates or appetizers). Nick and I shared the following:
Baba Ganouj with pita
Spiced Green Beans in a tomato based sauce
Vegetarian Stuffed Grape Leaves
Feta Stuffed Dates w/ pomegranate syrup
It was super delicious and surprisingly filling. I think the grape leaves were my favorite. They are stuffed with a spicy mixture of rice and chick peas and served with a tangy yogurt sauce. I must learn how to make these!
