This delicious appetizer is one of our family’s favorites. The inspiration comes from a dish called lajme bil ajin (which translates to “meat on the dough”), which our mom would often make on Friday nights or special occasions. The traditional version is made with homemade pizza dough, topped with ground beef sautéed in olive oil with pine nuts, chopped tomatoes, and pomegranate molasses. We have simplified the recipe by using crispy spring roll wrappers as a base, and substituted tofu for the ground meat. If you would like to freeze these, arrange them on a large baking sheet before they’re baked, and place in the freezer for about two hours (this will keep the filling from falling off). Transfer to a large freezer bag and freeze for up to a month.
