For those of us who are squeamish about eating animal meat (and I am one of them), here is an alternative to the last post made with cooked potatoes, bulgur and herbs. To be perfectly honest, the dish could easily be served with some grilled sausage or kebabs.
- 1 pound of cooked potatoes (such as Yukon Gold or other waxy variety), mashed
- 1/2 cup fine bulgur, soaked in very hot water for 10 minutes, drained well
- 1 cup chopped parsley or a combo of fresh chopped herbs (mint, tarragon, chervil, dill)
- 1 cup chopped onions, pan-fried in olive oil
- 1 or more tablespoons of kammuneh spices or a combo of cumin, black pepper, chili powder, nutmeg and salt to taste (start with a small amount, say half a tablespoon, and taste)
- 1/2 cup olive oil, more to garnish platter
- juice of half a large lemon
1. In a mixer bowl, place all the ingredients and combine. Taste to adjust seasoning. Serve garnished with green onions and a drizzle of olive oil.
