  1. If you don't have luck finding a recipe, Sabra makes pretty good vegetarian kibbeh that you might be able to find in the frozen foods section in your local supermarket depending on where you live.

      I think you're talking about two different types of kibbeh. I think peanutgallery7 is talking about the kind that you have in a red sour soup, not the fried kind that you dip in techina.

    2. This is a lebanese dish I learned to make while I worked in a now closed but great restaurant several years ago.
      Tomato Kibbie
      Soak 1/2c of cracked bulgar wheat (get the smallest you can find) in 1 3/4c very hot veggie stock for 60-90mins.
      To the soaked and drained bulgar add 2 cloves minced garlic, juice of 1 lemon, 3T minced red onion, 2T good olive oil, 1/4c chopped flat leaf parsley and at least 2T tomato paste (until it is dark red when formed into a cake) stir well then fold in 2 chopped tomatoes. Press into a cake and serve with arabic bread, pickles, onions, and lebni (arabic kefir cheese).

          It's not cooked (other than the soaking of the bulghur)?
