Potato Kibbe

It’s always fun to try a new recipe, especially when it’s from a different country and brings some new taste combinations to your table. Try this Lebanese dish, suggested by Entrust’s Esther A.

Potato Kibbe
Cooking time: 50 minutes

1 ½ lb potatoes
2 large onions, grated
1 ½ T salt
½ tsp black pepper
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 ½ cups burghul (bulgur wheat)
1 cup flour
1 cup chopped parsley
¼ cup chopped mint
1 ½ cups olive oil

Soak burghul in water until it feels soft between the fingers. Strain the burghul. You may need to squeeze by hand to remove all the water.

Boil the potatoes with the skin, then peel and mash to a paste/puree with the grated onions, salt, pepper and cinnamon. Knead in burghul, then flour. Add parsley and mint and knead again. Bake in a baking dish/tray with oil. Serve cold with salad or Greek yogurt. Results vary, your kibbe may not look like this photo, which involves a different shape, but enjoy it anyway!
