Kibbeh is commonly regarded as the national dish of Lebanon. The dish consists of fried balls of ground meat, bulgur wheat and spices. Lamb is a classic choice, though beef is widely used as well. Onions, basil, pepper, allspice, coriander, cumin, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, sage and pine nuts are incorporated in the dish too. Kibbeh can also be baked, grilled or poached for healthier options. There are also meatless versions of the dish that are made with potatoes or pumpkins. Aside from Lebanon, kibbeh is a common dish in most Middle Eastern countries, as well as in Latin American states with sizeable Middle Eastern immigrant communities.
