Middle Eastern–Inspired Recipes to Grill All Summer Long

Middle Eastern–Inspired Recipes to Grill All Summer Long

It’s finally getting hot—and we’re ditching the oven and dusting off the grill. While we love a casual backyard BBQ as much as the next guy, grilling doesn’t have to be all hot dogs and hamburgers all the time. So we put together an easy yet elegant Middle Eastern–inspired menu perfect for summer entertaining.

Grill Go-Tos

  • Harissa Grilled Eggplant

    Harissa, a Middle-Eastern blend of chilis, garlic, oil, and spices, lends incredible flavor to anything from chicken to veggies to aioli. Here, we slather it over eggplant before grilling, then serve with a tangy herby yogurt sauce.


  • Spelt Flatbreads

    You won’t believe how easy these little pita-inspired flatbreads are to make, and they’re way tastier than anything you can buy at the store. While spelt flour is not gluten-free, many gluten-sensitive people don’t have trouble digesting it.


  • Tomato, Cucumber, and Mint Salad
