Beef and Aubergine Fatteh

by . Featured in AT MY TABLE

Introduction

This is a subtly textured, richly flavoured arrangement of toasted pieces of flatbread topped with meaty aubergine and beef, a garlicky tahini-yogurt sauce, red pepper flakes, pomegranate seeds, toasted pine nuts and fresh shredded mint. I think of this rather as a refined, Middle-Eastern form of nachos.

  • I admit I wasn't sure about this one, it seemed a bit "meh" flavour-wise. I'm also not a big fan of aubergine or tahini...but OH MY!!! It's fantastic in every way- I jsut finished eating it and I feel like my body is thanking me for giving it a great injection of much-needed nutrition. And FLAVOURFUL nutrition at that! I didn't have Aleppo Pepper but it works just fine with sweet paprika and a bit of cayenne so get cracking people: make it now!

  • I have made this twice recently with the request to "please put it on high rotation". It is so tasty and looks impressive too.

  • This was delicious! Trialed it last week and it was approved by the family for our Christmas Eve dinner, I doubled the recipe and it easily fed 11. A huge success, the pomegranate seeds and mint made the dish look very festive indeed. I found it made a little too much yoghurt sauce but I put the surplus into a pouring jug and it was polished off by some pita wielding boys!

  • Absolutely delicious. It’s definitely going to become part of my repertoire for Friday night family meals.

  • This was absolutely gorgeous. It took me quite a bit of time to get the seeds out of a pomegranate because I find pomegranate seeds in the supermarket very expensive. I generally don't like aubergine ( although I grew up with it) but in this dish I loved it and it gave the mince a very fresh flavour. It had very new flavours for me but I enjoyed every mouthful

  • Absolutely delicious. Didn’t have any pitta so just served it with a mix of quinoa, bulgur wheat and sesame seeds. Will definitely be making this again and again.

  • Full marks! Easy to make and looked so pretty that even the two kids ate it. Will be a frequent recipe.
