Lebanese cuisine is famous for offering a wide array of Kibbe dishes. For those who are not familiar with the term, Kibbe generally refers to ground meat mixed with burghul (cracked weat), spices and herbs and then baked, fried or grilled into an amazingly savory dish. In this recipe, we’re going to feature a vegetarian version of Kibbe patties made with potatoes and chickpeas. Featured in the photo below are Kibbe Patties with Tabbouleh Salad

This is what I fixed in the Instant Pot 7-30-2019 Tuesday because I wanted some veggies. I basically just dumped the two cans of beans and tomatoes and the one package of asparagus into IP, with a dab of coconut/ghee (which I need to go add), and some Spike vegetarian no-salt herbal seasoning. Each package held 2.5 to 3 servings but I just decided to call the total recipe 6 servings, just because... I can!Submitted by PROVERBS31JULIA
Usually bought. Some online recipes use extra spices like ginger, fenugreek, or paprika, reflecting other area of the Middle East, but this is more like my friend used to use. Can use less or more of a spice depending on your (or family preference), like I prefer more cardamom than some.Submitted by PROVERBS31JULIA
Tabouli is a Mediterranean Parsley Salad. It is usually served in a bed of romaine lettuce. Bulgur grain is the basis for this salad. Bulgur grain is high in fiber, parsley is rich in vitamin A & C, folic acid and has flavonoids and is high in iron. Parsley is a blood purifier and aids in killing bacteria in your body. It also improves the digestion of proteins and fats.Submitted by LEPETITECHIC

Zaatar is to Lebanon what Peanut Butter is to America. The word “Zaatar” (aka Zatar or Za’tar) refers to wild thyme herbs that grow in Lebanese and Middle Eastern wilderness. It is also used to refer to the herbal mix that will be featured in this recipe and which is found in every Lebanese kitchen.
I recall childhood memories when we used to go out with our cousins and friends in the woods of villages in Koura, Lebanon every spring looking for wild thyme and marjoram. Our mothers would then dry the herbs and mix them with spices to prepare our yearly stock of the Zaatar mix.
The Zaatar mix can be consumed in a variety of ways, the most common one being to mix it with olive oil, and then use it as a spread on a sandwich or spread it on dough and bake it into a “Man’oosheh” (plural “Mana’eesh”). Mana’eesh bakeries are to the streets of Lebanon what Starbucks is to the streets of America (and now the World). They are extremely common and are crowded mostly in mornings with people picking up Zaatar or other kinds of Mana’eesh and gourmet baked pies on their way to work
This is a thick soup that you could put over rice. It has tons of herbs and green veggies. the more you slow cook it the better it tastes. The quantities you add can be varried and it's very versatile, like basil add some, can't stand dill omit it.... it's a soup so anything goes.Submitted by VIVALARAZA
This hummus and feta wrap is so quick and easy if you store pre-cut vegetables in your fridge. It is a great, lowfat, heart healthy lunch!
Fattoush is a popular salad, especially in Lebanon. The great thing about fattoush is that you can add and delete veggies from the recipe according to taste. Instead of pita bread, you can also use French or Italian bread but it will add additional calories. This makes a great side to any grilled meat Submitted by JULWHEELER
