  • I Middle Eastern Lamb Pide...

    This was delicious! I didn't add the chilli, as I don't like hot, spicy foods. On advice from comments I had read before making it, I left enough time to drain the pesto & the lamb. I am glad I did, as quite a lot of liquid came out, that probably would have made it go soggy. My oven trays were not large enough to fit the dough rolled out in two parts, so I divided the dough into four instead. As a lot of other comments read, it is very time-consuming, but the way it tasted in the end made it worth the effort.

    Submitted by Nolette on 16. January 2018 - 14:23.

    Great dish! Both mince and pesto were watery. Drained the pesto and used a little cornflour to thicken the mince. My kids loved it! Thanks for sharing!

    Submitted by suuluu on 16. October 2016 - 19:11.

    Absolutely delicious! I used fresh mint rather than dried; both the pesto and mince needed to be drained. I used about 80% of the dough to make smaller sized pides that would fit on my trays. I made the leftover into some rolls. Served with some Haloumi and a squeeze of lemon.

    Submitted by buzzmummy on 8. October 2016 - 20:31.

    This is awesome! I fed it to a crowd of 15 big eaters and I did 1.5 times the recipe...but they would probably have eaten 2x. Everyone complimented me on it. I also did the pesto and the lamb the day before, drained both before adding to freshly made bases. It was lovely. Going to do it again tomorrow night as we have more friends in. Thanks so much for sharing it! tmrc_emoticons.)

    Enjoyed this recipe tonight after experiencing Turkish Pide in Turkey during a trip last year. Very tasty, although it does make a large quantity. Intend trying to halve the ingredients next time and make less. Thanks for the recipe. Very easy to follow.

  • This deserves to be a 5 star

    Submitted by melanie2016 on 20. February 2016 - 20:16.

    This deserves to be a 5 star recipe, so thank-you Meredith! I have never made pesto or used so many spices before but it was all delicious. The lamb was so fragrant and tasty. It tasted great the next day too, cold straight out of the fridge. I prepared it over the course of the day, not that it was hard to do but I have a little one underfoot so I often do things in stages anyway. I will be making this many more times I am sure.

    Been wanting to make this for ages and finally today I had a crowd big enough to feed it to. It was a hit (even with my tomato hating mother in law) It will be a regular in our house Thanks.  

    I made the pesto and lamb mixture ahead last night and made the bread fresh this morning.  I also drained the salsa before spreading it so it didn't get soggy. Delicious!

    Delicious and much easier and quicker than I expected initially looking at all the ingredients!  I used diced lamb then wazzed it all up and drained it thru a sieve cause it seemed really runny. I also omitted the chilli and our little one loved it too. I also made the bread w baking powder and bicarbonate, not yeast as I wasn't organized enough. And finally we topped it w labne and it tasted great!  Many thanks

    The washing up has just been done after eating this delicious dish. We lived in the Middle East for several years and this reminded us of some of the tasty food we ate there.

    I loved that there were so many varied flavours to taste with each biteful. Yummy - will definitely be making this again very soon. One family member even suggested that we could eat it every night until we got sick of it... tempting!
