Last week, while perusing the farmers’ market, I spotted some cute, minature-sized green squashes. The kind Kaukab relied on to make her tasty Lebanese-style stuffed squashlets. My daughter had a taste for some, just before I left for the market. So when I found these little jewels, I grabbed a bunch to take home and re-create a new childhood memory.
These aren’t always offered in grocery markets, unless it’s a Whole Foods kind of place. Generally, you’ll have to scour farmers’ markets or small, independent Asian or Middle Eastern shops. Sounds like a running theme, here, doesn’t it? I’m just the messenger.
Check out my recipe in the Table Menus section, if you’re so inclined. And, remember the pita bread.
