Bizzeh b’jurah is so popular that there are rarely any leftovers. The key to its unique taste is the allspice, which turns mundane peas into something memorable. Serve alongside m’jedrah (Rice with Lentils), riz (Basic Syrian Rice), kusa b’jibin (Squash Cheese Pie), or dja-jeh mish mos (Sweet-and- Tart Chicken with Apricots).
1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat and cook the onions, stirring, until golden and soft, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until the garlic turns golden, about 1 minute. Add the mushrooms and cook until they begin to turn brown and soften, 3 to 4 minutes.
2. Add the water and peas. Cover and cook over medium heat for 8 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the salt, pepper, and allspice and mix well. Cook for an additional 2 minutes. Serve hot in a medium-size bowl or over the rice.
