For Egypt's vegetarians this highly spiced dish is a protein staple. On their own, lentils do not contain a lot of protein, but combined with the wheat in the pasta, they make a good protein dish that is low in fat.

A deliciously seasoned broad bean, onion and tomato spread. This recipe is inspired by a dish traditionally served with pitta bread for breakfast in Egypt. A great way to use broad beans when they're in season, but feel free to use frozen when they're not.

A delicious vegetarian meal that is of the most famous recipes from Egypt. Very traditional Egyptian fare. If you can't find black beluga lentils, try brown or Puy lentils. To save time, you can prepare the lentils the day before and reheat before serving.

A quick and tasty snack my Grannie use to make me 50 years ago. This will work just as well with vegetable oil.
