A traditional Middle Eastern dish popular in Lebanon, Syria and Egypt, Kibbe is a grain mixture bsed on bulgar wheat. This vegetarian version is simply baked in the oven, but is often made into patties and filled with meat or vegetables.
Bring 150ml/5fl oz water to the boil, add the salt and stir. Then add the oats and reduce the heat.
Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, then remove from the heat and put into a bowl. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
Add the bulgar wheat and any water remaining from soaking to the bowl.
Heat the olive oil in a frying pay, and saute the garlic, add the onions and pimentos and cook until soft.
Put into a bowl along with the remaining ingredients. Season to taste, mix well and put in a greased baking dish. Bake 1 hour.
