Kibbeh in Tomato Sauce

We have to make 3 versions in our home.

1 for the man of the house with turnips and sharia (small pasta noodles)

1 for the son of the house skipping the turnips and adding potato chunks

1 for the wife of the house with turnips but no sharia!

Places to buy frozen kibbeh:

In the USA Tasty N Healthy in Philadelphia sell frozen kibbeh

In London Archie’s Foods in London N.W.10 sell the ones used in these recipes

Another supplier in London N.W.10 is Al Enam

A more central shop in London is Green Valley 36-37 Upper Berkeley Street, Marble Arch, London

W1H 5QF.


So for the basic version

Ingredients

3 large kibbeh per person

A large jar of tomato purée

A teaspoon of salt

A few grindings of black pepper

A 400g tin of tomatoes blended if possible

3 turnips per person, or potatoes, peeled and sliced into rings

Sharia if desired

Flat leaf parsley to serve

Water

Method

In a large pan, fry the tomato purée in a little olive oil then add the tinned tomatoes and a litre of water.  Add the lemon juice, salt and pepper.  Add the turnips or potatoes (even both) and simmer for 10 minutes. Then lower the frozen coubah into the liquid using a slotted spoon.  Simmer for a further 15 minutes.  Add the chopped parsley and serve in large soup bowls with crispy bread.
