This recipe is absolutely phenomenal. Instead of going the traditional route, I tried using basic spices and herbs I had on hand. I also decided to add a little kick to the arayes by adding in jalapeño. You guys gotta try this!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a immersion blender blend together, onion, jalapeno, parsley, and garlic. Pour the mixture into a bowl.
To the bowl, add ground meat, egg, and seasonings. Mix everything well by hand until everything is well incorporated.
Grease one cookie sheet with olive oil. Cover the pan with aluminum foil (a sheet) and grease the foil with olive oil as well.
Slice five mini whole wheat pitas in half. Stuff each half with the meat mixture and lay it down on greased foil/pan. Once all the pita halves are stuffed, brush them with olive oil and (optional) sprinkle with garlic powder.
Place in the oven for 10 mins. Then remove them from the oven, remove the aluminum foil sheet off the pan, and now place the arayes back on the sheet on their other side. Brush with olive oil again if you’d like.
Increase the oven temperature to 405 and now bake the arayes for another 10-15 mins until they’re golden brown. Serve with amba and tahini as dipping sauces and enjoy!!!
