Music: Happy Birthday to Bach!
I don't eat out often--I much prefer my own home-cooked food--but, when I do, it's almost always Middle-Eastern. There's something about the combination of flavors with legumes, grains, chopped fresh vegetables, and onions that are out of this world.
Pittsburgh has several Middle-Eastern restaurants including Aladdin's Eatery in Squirrel Hill and Kassab's in South Side.
One restaurant I frequent with co-workers is Ali-Baba in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh, very close to the Main library. One of our favorite dishes is sleek, a savory dish made with black-eyed peas, bulgur, onions, scallions, and Swiss chard. I just had to find a recipe to recreate this delicious-ness at home.
You'll find the recipe here. I also enjoy sleek leftovers at room temperature. I'll bet it's even good in a wrap!
