This is from 365 Ways to Cook Vegetarian. Serve with bulgur or couscous. I have not made this yet and yes, that does seem like a lot of garlic to me. Adjust to your own tastes.

Very nice recipe. Full of flavor and tasted great! I made a couple alterations that worked very well for me: 1. Replaced lemon pepper with 1/2 preserved lemon and 1 tsp of pepper 2. Addition of el Henout spice (middle eastern spice medley) to taste (roughly 2-3 tsp) 3. Decreased the amount of garlic to 1 full garlic (5 cloves) 4. I did not add the yogurt during prep. I served that on the side and allowed my family to add it to taste.
Made for NA/ME forums' Lebanon tour. I was really eager to try this recipe as I like everything thats in it and enjoy veggie meals. I may have done something wrong or mismeasured an ingredient because, sadly, it wasn't what I had hoped for. I love trying recipes that are new to me but I doubt that I'll give this one another try, sigh.
