I saw this interesting Pumpkin Kibbeh Pie recently on The Food Blog and thought I should try it. I love trying food from different cultures (just in case you haven't noticed!!). Apparently it is far from the traditional Lebanese kibbeh which is usually made with meat.
I roasted the pumpkin and then pureed with cinnamon and seasoning. I then mixed in uncooked bulgar and allowed to sit for a little while. I didn't squeeze liquid from the pumpkin as it was already dry and thick. Half the pumpkin is then layered in a cake tin with caramelised star anise onions and gently roasted walnuts. The pie is then baked.
The kibbeh was very tasty, the flavours of the walnuts and onions went really well with the pumpkin. But the whole thing was too dry, I should of added much less bulgar (1 cup instead of 2). I think it would make a really great side dish to take to a bbq. Maybe I should have a Lebanese themed party!
