Updated: 3 days ago


The middle eastern cuisine is one of the most undiscovered and underrated food now a days . people should start trying different cuisines . Essential to any cooking in the arab world is the concept of hospitality and generosity. Meals are generally large family affairs, with much sharing and a great deal of warmth over the dinner table. Formal dinners and celebrations generally involve large quantities of lamb and every occasion entails large quantities of Arabic tea or coffee . Vegetarians going to Arab or Middle Eastern countries often fear that meat dishes will dominate the menu and they will have little choice of vegetarian meals. This is not true, as the Middle Eastern cuisine has at it heart, vegetables, grains and spices. In other words, a vegetarian dish can have as much flavour as a meat dish. some examples of the dishes are

Koshary The national dish of Egypt is also vegetarian, containing rice, lentils and macaroni noodles with spicy sauce on top. OK, it may be a lot of carbs, but it is delicious!
