Kibbeh is a marvelous Lebanese dish. The original recipe uses meat. I have developed a vegetarian/vegan alternative.
* 1 cups pumpkin pureed
* 1 cup bulghur cracked wheat
* 1/2 cup oat grains
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon pepper
* 1 teaspoon allspice
* 1/4 teaspoon cumin
* 2 medium onions, finely chopped
* 1 cup chopped parsley
* 1/2 cup toasted pine nuts (optional)
* 2 tablespoons olive oil
In a medium bowl, soak wheat and oats for 30 minutes in hot water. Remove and drain excess water by squeezing well.
Place into medium bowl and combine with the remaining ingredients.
Spread on an oiled pan, drizzle a bit of olive oil and bake until firm and golden.
Let it cool a bit before slicing.
