    I think it is "white beet" in english. But it does not matter now. I made Couscous without them and it was delicious :)

    :)The freezer in your local Halal shop should have the pastry sheets. Hope you get your fix.

    You can easily replace the "warka" (pastry sheets) by chinese rice sheets (used for loempia f.i.), they absorbe less oïl and are less fat. For the stuffing, take care not to have it too titillated, as this will break the sheets when you put them in the hot oïl and th stuffing will come out.

    Comfort Food : Chocolate Popcorn :love:

    2 quarts popped popcorn
    • 1 cup peanuts (optional)
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup corn syrup
    • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
    • 1/2 cup butter
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Oil a 10x15 inch baking pan with sides.
    2. Place popcorn and peanuts into a large, metal bowl, and set aside. Stir together the sugar, corn syrup, cocoa powder, and butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat until it comes to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes. Stir in the vanilla, then pour over the popcorn. Stir until the popcorn is well coated. Spread the popcorn into the prepared pan.
    3. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, stirring several times.
    4. Remove from the oven, and allow to cool to room temperature. Break into small clumps, and store in an airtight container.

    After eating be sure to go to the doctors for a blood sugar check.

    10,000 calories a slice!

    Or as an alternative try:

    One large shredded white cabbage boiled for five minutes.

    Place into a baking dish.

    Add one chopped onion and spread over the cabbage. Season with salt and pepper.

    Add a white sauce ( plain, cheese, or onion sauce) and pour over the mixture until well covered.

    Break a packet of cream crackers into crumbs by bashing them and spread over the mixture.

    Put into the oven 30-40 minutes at 160 and serve with vegetables or meat if a carnivore. Yummy

    Now Laura, your recipe sounds lovely and there is also the option of Quorn as a side dish for us vegetarians. However....Heidi's chocolate popcorn is pulling me in....so book your flight, woman! My cookery attempts are legendary...even set my hair on fire once :eek: There is a sofa here waiting for you. Bring your thermals, it's freakin freezing! Just read a few comments, t'would appear titillated has been a problem for a while, it's not my device after all :p

    Ha, well here is my culinary contribution: Buy a Pot Noodle, remove lid, add boiling water from kettle, stir thoroughly, allow to sit for a while, stir again, add sauce from packet supplied and stir again. On a more adventurous day, butter one slice of shop bought bread and dip in Pot Noodle. Enjoy :p
