Vegetarian Travelers

Vegetarian Travelers 

In Egypt, vegetarian menus are becoming prevalent in fast-food, but having several appetizers is still the est. making a choice from stuffed vine leaves and hummus, yoghurts and cheeses, and fresh bread, a standard fast food can give a staid and filling course. Before asking for stuffed vine leaves, make enquiries first – because they are prepared with small amount of meat sometimes.

One benefit for vegetarian travelers is that, the Christian neighborhood in Egypt, keeps to a definite fasting schedule. Unlike the Muslims, who stay away from meals during the day, the Coptic neighborhood removes meat and milk products during their fasts. Find out about “fasting meals’ at fast foods and bakeries.

The most common foods in Egypt are foul, falafel, kushary and humus. Almost every Egyptian corner has places where they are sold. The pleasant fact is they are vegan accidentally.

Some of the finest meals vegans can get while relishing their stay in Egypt;

KUSHARY

Marcaroni, portion of spaghetti and rice, lentils and chickpeas cap black lentil and a tomato sauce is spread over them. Fried crispy onions are speckled over to give additional beauty as a finishing touch.

TA’AMIA

This was well known among old time Egyptians and till-date, remains well known in the middle-east. They are prepared with fava beans(ful or foul), but chickpeas can be used in place of the beans, to make the popular variety of Ta’amia known as falaful.
