HummusHummus

Dips and Falafel with an array of Lebanese breads are all-time favorites, enjoyed by people of all nationalities. Garlicky dips, especially the Hummus made with Kabuli chana, are quite popular. You can even make myriad of hummus by adding or substituting ingredients. Here are some of my favorite hummus recipes :

1. Tandoori Hummus

2. Black bean Hummus

3. Spinach hummus with cucumber sticks

Apart from hummus, there is Baba Ganoush, made by combining roasted brinjals with olive oil, garlic, tahini paste and lemon juice. The Tzatziki Dip is a curd-based dip made with hung curds and cucumber, flavoured with garlic and dill leaves.

Shatta, often eaten with appetizers, is a simple dip made with coriander, garlic and herbs. It is also served atop salads and served with breads and starters.

Lebanese breads

LavashLavash

The whole wheat pita bread are similar to Indian roti. Just that they are made using yeast so, they get fluffy on baking. When cut into two, these oblong breads are opened to make pita pockets. Pita pockets can be stuffed with various ingredients like hummus, pickled vegetables, falafel etc,. to make wholesome starters.

You can even cut pita bread into long strips, brush with herbed butter and bake them to make lip-smacking Herbed Pita Strips . Lavash is another Mediterranean delight made by baking plain flour triangles till crisp.

Vegetarian Lebanese Recipes, Appetizers

Apart from kebabs being popular appetizers, the Mediterranean mezze platter is one of the popular dish. It consists of various dips, breads, pickled vegetables, olives, etc. Also, Sambousek which are similar to Indian samosa but, stuffed with meat are famous appetizers. We have come up with a vegetarian version, try the Spinach and Cheese Sambousek, that are extremely delicious and easy to make.

Appetizers like Spinach Tahini Wraps and Paneer and Broken Wheat Patties in Whole Wheat Pita Pocket are healthy. You can munch upon them guilt-free.

Vegetarian Lebanese Recipes, Maincourse

Lebanese cuisine has varied dishes to offer, across all the courses of a meal. For vegetarians, main course consists of stew/curry along with pita bread and rice. The rice dishes make use of rich ingredients like saffron. Served with Mixed Vegetable Curry, the Saffron Rice offers an exquisite experience, which you will relish and remember forever. Broken wheat is used to make a traditional salad called Tabbouleh, which is healthy and at the same time very tasty as well.

Small pieces of pita bread are also added to dishes like the fattoush salad, mixed vegetable curry to perk up the texture.

The Lebanese repertoire also has some traditional desserts like Baklava, and unique beverages like the Apple Tea and Ayran.
