Mejadra

For a delicious mediterranean vegan dinner, I highly recommend mejadra. According to my mother, and Suzy from TheMediterraneanDish, mejadra is known as poor man’s food in the Middle East, seems like beans and rice combo isn’t considered fancy anywhere in the world, but it sure is comfort food to me! The original recipe from TheMediterraneanDish…

One Pot Chickpea Shakshuka

I love normal (non-vegan) shakshuka with eggs, and have had subpar chickpea shakshuka’s before, so I had low expectations for this recipe. My vegan friend highly recommended this recipe from Minimalist Baker, so I decided to try it, and I very much enjoyed it! I also topped it with Eden Grinshpan’s Garlicky tahini, which I…

Paleo Macaroons

I was skeptical, since these macaroons are paleo, gluten-free and vegan, and I’ve definitely gotten some bad recipes for “healthy” desserts, so my parents generally ask me not to make desserts healthy. However, decided to take a risk with this recipe, as this vegan friend cooks a…
