    justcallmetoni's Note:

    This is typical of lenten dishes from Lebanon. Rich in fiber and nutrients, it makes for a wonderful one dish meal or a substantial side dish. The original comes from a 1997 issue of Eating Well magazine but has been modified to suit my tastes. If you replace the chicken broth with vegetable broth, this is a vegan dish as well.

      A simple, savory dinner, with elements that really harmonize. I've made it a few times and I'm still pleasantly surprised by the first bite!

      This recipe had a surprisingly lovely taste! The spices blend well together. The first time I made it, my mother-in-law was over for lunch when we had guests, and she liked it so much that she requested it again a while later that I make it at her place! She's not so used to new recipes, so that said alot! I didn't have bulgur, so I used the mill attachment on my blender to coarsely grind barley. And I didn't have allspice, but I made my blend from the recipe in my standard cookbook. Nice dish! Thanks for posting it. A tasty and healthy way to serve squash and get some whole grains at the same time. =) P.S. I served it with homemade tahini and raw veggies to balance out the meal.
