Ful

This dish definitely lives up to it’s name. Ful is a breakfast food prepared across East Africa and the Middle East. Made from stewed fava beans and plenty of delicious fresh veggie toppings, it’s a refreshing replacement to the typical American breakfast. Substitute the cereal for this healthy treat.

Shiro

This is an Ethiopian/Eritrean classic. It’s the Ethiopian version of fast food as it’s fairly cheap and easy to prepare. But don’t get it twisted- it’s absolutely delicious – and vegetarian! Prepared with dried spiced chickpea powder (shiro), peppers and tomatoes (depending on the chef) it is a veg friendly dish that is sure to please!

Akara

This crunchy bean fritter is the ISH and can be found in many forms from Ghana to Brazil (here’s a link for the Nigerian version of the recipe). It’s the perfect spicy pick me up for when you need a filling vegetarian escape.
