This is a typical Middle Eastern recipe given to me by my niece. Her in-laws, who are from the Middle East, gave this recipe to her and it has become a staple in their home. I think it's fantastic, too. It could work as a vegetarian main dish, a side dish or lunch. It is traditionally served with a salad made of the following: chopped lettuce, chopped tomato, chopped green pepper, lemon juice and salt. I like to mix the mjadra right in with the salad. Yum!
