Adana Kabab


Adana Kabab is my ultimate comfort food. Maybe it stems from growing up in Greece constantly eating kababs of all sorts. I usually serve it paired with vermicelli rice and with some yogurt sauce on the side and of course the grilled seasonal veggies. The thing I love most about this dish is that it makes all of us equally happy. From the hubby to the baby and everyone in between. It’s my one dish dinner that’s easy to make, healthy and a definite crowd pleaser.
