I made some Near East brown rice pilaf to serve with hubby's kebabs. This was a new marinade recipe I tried....it was called Yogurt Marinade with Aleppo Pepper. I must say, it turned out so flavorful and we really liked it. Penzey's Spices describes the taste of Aleppo pepper as: "This Turkish crushed chili has an ancho-like flavor with a little more heat and tartness." The only item I didn't have for the marinade was the Aleppo pepper, but the substitution for Aleppo pepper is "1 part cayenne and 4 parts sweet Hungarian paprika". I had the Hungarian paprika and the cayenne so that is what I used. I snapped a few pictures of our meal for you to see below. It was an absolutely gorgeous and delicious meal. I felt like we got to travel around the world for dinner this evening. I will include the marinade recipe below too. Enjoy!
