Turkey Kibbeh

June/July 2006

Your rating: None Average: 4.4 (13 votes)

Kibbeh, a seasoned lamb and bulgur mixture, is one of the national dishes of Lebanon. It's often served raw, drizzled with olive oil, with slices of sharp white onion and fresh pita bread alongside, but is also baked or stuffed and deep-fried. This baked version uses lean ground turkey to cut fat and finely shredded zucchini to keep it moist while baking. Make it a meal: serve with toasted pita bread and a salad tossed with a lemon vinaigrette.

try it with beef or veal instead of turkey. Im lebanese and in our home its often served with tabboule or a salad of yogurt with sliced cucumbers and some garlic and mint.

A Flavor Explosion

I love the different flavors in this dish. I cook for other families once a week and this dish has been a favorite for at least 2 years. The meat mixture releases a LOT of water while it cooks so I like to let the Kibbeh sit after it has cooked to allow the moisture to be reabsorbed into the meat. I also often use non-fat instead of low fat yogurt. Delicious!

This is really good. I made it into a sandwich with tzatziki sauce and lettuce on a pita.
