Although a vegetarian dish, this gets eaten with reckless abandon by carnivores. it sounds way too healthy (and it is) but dang! it is GOOD. try it. give about 45 minutes from start to finish. If you don't have cooked brown rice lying around, start that first and foremost. (This is modified from a recipe from joy of cooking and embellished with touches I figured out from an Egyptian restaurant in Washington DC).
