baked vegetarian kibbeh, Salad with fruits

Baked Vegetarian Kibbeh : Its a wholesome dish from Lebanese and middle eastern cuisine. 1 cup bulghur (cracked wheat) soaked in 2 cups hot water for an hour. I added 1 boiled potato 1/4 cup soaked Moong dal - crushed in blender with garlic, some Salt and 1/8 tsp Allspice (equal parts of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and black pepper grind to powder). Mix it all together(like making dough) and layer it in baking dish. For vegetables layer - In some oil add grated ginger and then I added chopped onions, grated carrots, turnip, squash, 2 boiled and cut potatoes, chopped methi(fenugreek leaves), 1 whole bunch of chopped swiss chard, chopped kale leaves, coriander leaves(cilantro), allspice, salt, 1 tsp sugar. In the baking dish with another bulghur layer...Baked for 30 - 40 minutes.
Variations : mix everything (bulghur+veggie) and make patties or fried/steamed balls.
Salad : lettuce, celery, grapes, strawberry, orange bites, some cheese, with balsamic vinaigrette [balsamic (any) vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper]. I reuse little honey jar for salad dressing. seals good. washes good.

Roo ate 3 kibbeh pieces and all the lettuce...she tried to dump the dressing on the salad and some dressing splashed on her shirt...she usually does it really good...
surprise to me is grapes and orange bites came back.
