    This is my favorite dish. I add some tarragon, garlic, cumin and curry for some more flavor. Occasionally some feta, kalamata olives and garbanzo beans.

    I didn’t have fresh parsley on hand and substituted with dried parsley (about 2/3 cup). I also only had fresh chocolate mint leaves, but the overall effect was delicious to me and my 11yo son. Took a little time, but still simple to put together. Will make again.

    Thanks for this great recipe. You probably understand how difficult it is for vegetarians to find good recipes that do not use meat. I have been cooking for about 4 years using recipes that I find on the internet and I am not always lucky enough to find a recipe without meat. I wanted to offer you to record a video guide with the preparation of this dish and post it on YouTube, given that your recipe is good, but it lacks clarity in preparing it so that others can easily repeat it. I saw a lot of instructions on how to cook various vegetarian dishes there and mostly such videos have from 30 to 40 thousand views! Which suggests that their authors are using https://soclikes.com services to buy views.
