    This recipe sounds delicious; but, I sauted the garlic first in the olive oil to enhance the flavor. Then I added the green beens and followed the rest of the recipe. - 11/28/08

    My grandmother made this often, when we were children...she served it over long grain rice with orzo...it tastes just as good when served over brown rice - 2/3/09

    These are awesome. Make sure to cook the veggies the length of time advised so the flavors will blend nicely. We didn't have any arabic bread on hand but we did have some french. Very good! - 9/14/08
