If you are a vegetarian dreaming of traveling to Egypt, don't worry about securing delicious and rich food in this stunning country. Egypt impresses not only with its history and monuments but also with a variety of vegetarian dishes that offer a new perspective on the local cuisine.

Egypt has its own unique authentic cuisine worth exploring. The list of authentic Egyptian appetizers and main dishes that you should try was prepared by newsbytesapp.com.


If you love falafel, don't miss the Egyptian version of this dish - tameya. It differs from regular falafel in that it is made from fava beans, not chickpeas. Various local herbs are added to the mixture, making it a popular street food that you can find on every corner. Served with pita bread, onions, tahini sauce, and fresh tomatoes.

Ful Medames

This is a classic Egyptian dish that has been enjoyed since the time of the pharaohs. Ful medames is made from fava beans, olive oil, pepper, salt, and cumin. It is a popular breakfast among locals and tourists alike and is also an ideal option for vegans.

Molokhia Soup

Soup lovers have a great opportunity to try molokhia soup. It is made from finely chopped green leaves of a local vegetable called jute. Spices such as cinnamon, cumin, and rosemary are added to the dish to make the thick soup tasty and flavorful. Locals believe that molokhia soup was once eaten by royalty in ancient Egypt.


This stewed dish consists of spinach, tomato paste, onions, garlic, and coriander and is usually served with rice. It is also available in the form of spinach-filled dough, known as fatayer bi sabanekh. This traditional Egyptian dish with lots of spices and herbs has a wonderful flavor and aroma. It is a must-try.


We finish this list with another soup on the menu that will enchant your taste buds with its rich flavor. It is made from parsley, fava beans, dill, leeks, green bell peppers, and spices that give it a rich flavor. This dish can be served as a side dish or as an independent dish.
