Inspired by President Obama speech in Cairo I decided to make a dinner with tastes of the Middle East.

I decided that the menu would be lamb burgers, hummus, yogurt, butternut squash and pita bread.  Here’s how I made it. [/donot print]

Lamb Burgers

I heated one tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan and added one diced, medium onion, two cloves of minced garlic, a pinch of red pepper flakes and put it on to saute.  While that was cooking, I hydrated three sun dried tomatoes in a half a cup of boiling water, chopped eight calamata olives, and then drained and chopped the tomatoes. When the onions were translucent, I took the pan off the heat and added the tomatoes and olives along with a pinch dried rosemary and half a teaspoon of ground cumin.

When this mixture had cooled, I combined it with three quarters of a pound of ground lamb, shaped the meat into four patties and reused the frying pan, I had cooked the onions in, to cook the burgers. I find that olives make additional salt unnecessary.

The multi-national, Middle Eastern theme with squash seasoned with cardamom – inspired by a recipe for pumpkin from Afghanistan, hummus – perhaps the glue that could hold this part of the world together, yogurt cheese, sliced cucumbers and toasted pita bread.
