A few days of fine weather work wonders for the spirits! Especially after the long, cold, wet Winter we have shared with so many other hardships.
Looking back through some old recipes, I was checking for some that I thought were appropriate for spring and not too time-consuming to prepare. As I have a rampant growth of apple mint at present, I chose this one as a way to use up some of it. I was also reminded of my Mum and her wonderful Greek neighbours, who used to often bring her Greek meals, and I remember she loved this one! I am using a much simpler version than the original.
A light red wine is a pleasant accompaniment.
NOTE It is a good idea to prepare a double quantity of kofta and freeze enough for a second meal. To make preparation easier, check the supermarket shelves for packs of fresh mixed greens.
I am sure that during our "lockdown" phase many people have discovered the pleasures of cooking and be interested in testing recipes they have not cooked before and feeling more adventurous in their culinary choices!
I know it has been hard to make plans over the past few dreary months, but hopefully families can soon spend time together again and you can show off your newly acquired kitchen skills at family gatherings!
