Unbaked Potato Kebbeh – Mashed Potatoes and Burghul (Bulgur)2018-07-26
- Servings : 3 or 4
Kebbeh is generally made with mince meat and Burghul. The 2 famous Lebanese Kebbeh are: the raw meat Kebbeh and the baked one.
But if you want a vegetarian or vegan Kebbeh then follow this recipe. It is also eaten either unbaked or baked!
My recipe uses the same ingredients as the ones I use in Kebbeh Nayeh (raw meat Kebbeh) and it tastes like it. And if you have any leftover, bake it next day (for a change).
Serve this Kebbeh cold or at room temperature with a drizzle of olive oil and some raw greens on the side (such as rocket, watercress, mustard leaves, spring onions) and flat bread, if eaten as a vegetarian or vegan meal.
- 4 medium size boiled potatoes, cooked in salty water and mashed
- 1 cup of fine grain burghul, soaked beforehand and drained well
- 1 large onion, chopped finely
- 1 large handful of mint leaves, chopped finely + some extra for garnish
- 1 tsp of allspice
- 1/2 tsp of cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp of white pepper + salt to taste
- Enough olive oil, to drizzle on top
First rub the chopped onion with allspice and salt then put in a bowl with all the other ingredients. Mix and knead by hand until all is well combined. Taste to adjust the seasonings then spread the Kebbeh on a platter. Drizzle generously with olive oil and serve at room temperature or cold with a garnish of fresh mint.
