Anatolian Bulgur Pilav
Okay, I made it as directed and it's not bad!!! But I suspected the proportions mights have been off. My suggestion would be to increase the lentils 1/2 cup and the chickpeas 1/2 cup and you should be on point. The bulgur just seems to be rather top-heavy. In any case, healthy & filling!!! Love me some Middle-Eastern Cuisine ;-)

Split Pea Soup with Rosemary
Incredibly delicious recipe!!!! Oh my goodness, the aroma will bring you to your knees, so be prepared for torture!!! I made seemingly minor changes, but significant in terms of final outcome. They are as follows: 4 slices of THICK SLICE bacon. I'm always a fan of thick slice anyway, but when you crisp it there's still a nice piece of meaty bacon left. As far as cooking the veggies in the bacon grease, I ladled out all but a 1-2 tbsp, which was more than adequate and cuts down on fat considerably. I only had 1 can of low sodium chix broth in the pantry, so I used that and completed the liquid requirement with simply water and 1 chicken bouillon cube. Still plently salty (remember there is bacon in here!!!) and this gives you the option to salt to taste when served. 1 clove of garlic instead of two. Just a personal preference. There are a lot of delightful flavors in this soup. Didn't want any one thing to take over!!! Served it with a rustic, whole grain bread and olive oil for dipping. Truly Heaven on Earth!!! The rosemary is amazing in it. DON'T USED DRIED OR OMIT!!! It's sooooooo worth spending a couple dolllars on. Bon apetit!!!

Middle Eastern Kibbeh
I made this a couple of weeks ago and wasn't so sure sure about it at the time. I sauteed a couple of small kibbehs in a pan. Afterwards, I baked the rest of the mixture, and put it in the freezer. Today, I decided to try a few pieces and I LOVED IT!!! In the final analysis, I think sauteeing it in the olive oil just didn't work for me. Maybe a little greasy tasting??? Anyway, two thumbs up for baking it!!!
