This is an old stand by for me, its quick and easy and can be served as a main dish or side dish. Its great with a nice middle eastern salad and a side of yoghurt and also goes well with baked lamb or roasts.This is a great potluck dish as well.Seasoning are approximate, you can adjust to suit your tastes.

    I preferred this with the lamb. Nice as is, but I found that adding about a tablespoon of ground cumin to the meat added something that it seemed to be missing for me. Thanks!

    I love this recipe! It's delicious, unique, and always a hit with guests. I use a whole pound of meat, I add 2 cans of white beans instead of the chick peas, and I add 2-3 cups of shredded carrots.

    I used ground lamb, and white and wild rice mixed. Also, used a little bit of beef boullion (1 tsp better than bullion beef boullion) to "goose up" the flavor a bit as it was a little bland and gamey. The boullion gave it a nice flavor boost. Also used mixed color sweet peppers and sliced black olives but no chick peas. Nice mediterranean dish to go with my freshly made spanakopita =)
