Delve into beautiful, delicious vegetarian food from the masters of Middle Eastern cuisine. The Middle East—from North Africa and Moorish Spain, through Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, and Jordan to the Arabian Peninsula—has long had a vibrant tradition of home-style vegetarian cuisine—from their abundant fresh salads, dips, and breads to a diverse collection of delicious and hearty main meals. Based on the freshest ingredients and cooked from the heart, Greg and Lucy Malouf’s recipes are designed for sharing and enjoying in company. Their approach to vegetarian food comes from their love of traditional Middle Eastern flavor combinations and the importance of color and texture. The recipes are new interpretations of Middle Eastern food, inspired by the spirit of generosity and sharing that characterizes the region.
