One Arab Vegan by Nada - 1w ago

The thick fumes of gasoline swirled with the smell of deep-fried food. A wild, boisterous and seemingly endless racket comprised of beeping cars and zooming scooters, the shrill voices of scolding mothers, lofty claims from overzealous salesmen and the sweet sounds of Um Kulthoum and Abdulwahab singing love songs from yesteryear. Never before have I...

My name is Nada, and I’m a Kombucha-holic. I kid, of course – but in all seriousness, kombucha is probably one of my favourite beverages of all time. For those of you who aren’t familiar, Kombucha is a fermented drink made from sweet tea and a Symbiotic Culture of Bacteria and Yeast (also fondly referred...

    For as long as I can remember, I have preferred savoury flavours to their sweet counterparts. As a child, there’s nothing I enjoyed more than the delightful crunch of a ready salted walkers potato chip. I wolfed down several helpings of home-cooked Egyptian food at lunch and shared my father’s addiction for salted...

One country I’ve yet to visit (and on...

Egyptians have a fine talent of elevating seemingly ho-hum vegetables by incorporating them into truly decadent (and by extension, not-so-healthy) dishes. Case in point, the infamous Kousa Bechamel.

I’m going to level with you guys, this has been a great Ramadan for me – but God almighty has it been tiring.   Between my over-ambitious plans to host (and be hosted – you know I never show up to an iftar empty-handed), scrambling to tackle my never-ending to-do list during the shorter working...

Greetings dear readers, and a very warm (albeit slightly belated) Ramadan Mubarak to those of you who observe holy month. Earlier this month, I had the honor of filming an episode with vlogger extraordinaire Khalid Al Ameri on the benefits of a vegan diet, the stigma it faces in Middle Eastern culture, and we even cooked...

To say that the start of 2019 hasn’t gone at all like I expected to would be a bit of an understatement. Though less than 3 months young, this year has already gifted me with what seems like a lifetime’s worth of challenges, and man am I tired. Between shifting gears at the office, an...
