Dishes made with fresh vegetables, fruit, dairy products, fish, nuts and seeds are the foundation of Lebanese cuisine. olive oil finds a place in many recipes. The most common meat in Lebanon’s cuisine is lamb, with poultry as a popular alternate.

food01If you are a strict vegan or vegetarian you can still enjoy Lebanese food ,for example chickpeas are high-fiber, low-fat legumes. They are the main ingredient in two of Lebanon’s most widely eaten dishes. Hummus, a combination of sesame seed paste, mashed chickpeas and lemon juice, garlic and olive oil sprinkle with flat parsley and sometimes for that extra va va voom, toasted pine nuts, which appears on most tables for lunch and dinner. Fafalel is fried ground chickpea & broad beans balls stuffed into pita bread with generous portions of cabbage pickled turnip & cucumber, tomatoes, radish fresh mint & tahini sauce. Although fried, it is healthy, vegetarian snack.
