Shakshuka from Israel
I’ve eaten shakshuka a couple of times in the past but I have never had the pleasure of visiting Israel and tasting it from the local cuisine. This another meal to use as breakfast or on any other time of the day. It’s a known recipe for the Middle East and parts of North Africa! Read the recipe for Shakshuka.
Hainanese Chicken Rice from Singapore
I visited Singapore in 2018 but never had this recipe before. It’s a recipe that’s not as easily changeable into a vegetarian dish ‘cause most recipes use a whole chicken. However, there are always options to change the recipe and perhaps make your own version of it if you’d love to cook this meal in a vegetarian way! Read the Hainanese chicken rice recipe.
Meatballs from Sweden
Ah, the famous meatballs. If there’s one place that made them so popular: it’s Ikea. Not only my favorite furniture store but it has great and inexpensive meals as well. I have never had meatballs since I’m vegetarian but I definitely heard great things. Read the recipe for Swedish meatballs.
Murgh Makhani from India
This is essentially butter chicken and it is one of the most known and most loved meal around the world. I’m not sure how suitable this meal is for vegetarians but as always, there are ways to tweak it to your liking. There are many different recipes on the internet and there might be a vegetarian one out there as well. Read the recipe for Indian Murgh Makhani.
Miso Soup from Japan
The two most important ingredients in miso soup are dashi (bouillon) and miso which is soybean paste. It’s usually a vegetarian dish: it has tofu, wakame (seaweed) and stem onions. Soup is the perfect meal if you’re in a rush, if you don’t want to spend lots of time in the kitchen and whenever you feel cold and crave for something warm! Read the recipe for Japanese miso soup.
