Kubbeh is a small pocket of dough that is stuffed with ground beef and pine nuts. Kubbeh for soup is usually boiled, whereas Kubbeh served on a platter is fried. Grocery stores in Israel and increasingly in the United States offer frozen packages of Kubbeh that are ready to drop into a vegetable soup.
