A little taste of Turkey lurks in this deceptively simple, but deeply-flavoured vegetarian pasta dish. Make more onions than you need and add the remainder into dishes for days to come.

Can I entice you with a recipe that apparently induces fainting? Sounds rather alarming, doesn’t it? The famous Turkish mezze dish, Imam Bayildi, translates as “the Imam fainted.” From pleasure or shock, we know not. But really, who doesn’t want a bit of that?
