Not a very well-known side, but it’s great as a side for any middle-eastern themed meal or bowl. It works in any recipe where couscous or brown rice would work.
This is a great hack to add a certain je ne sais quoi to your food if it feels bland. It goes with everything — baked potatoes, meats, middle eastern foods, beans, bowls, salads, sandwiches. The only limit is your imagination. I usually have this in my fridge on standby.
Is it a crepe? Is it a pancake? Either way, it is delicious. A Sunday brunch regular.

This is my favourite meal when I can’t even. A large boiled potato with salt and butter.
Do not throw away your stale bread! Turn it into croutons instead!
