One Arab Vegan

Za’atar Spiced Tofu

How do you make tofu taste good? The eternal question posed to vegans everywhere. Some people might say that tofu is an acquired taste, that it isn't for everyone or that beans and legumes are more versatile and flavourful forms of plant-based protein. And to those people I say: you're sorely mistaken. Jump to recipe...

Vegan Timman Bagilla

It's official – I can no longer stomach eating salads in the winter. Granted, I do live in the desert where the term 'winter' hardly means sub-zero temperatures and gloomy sunless days on end – but still. It's all relative, right? I've tried everything from chopping up fresh veggies as a snack with some hummus...

Vegan Seitan Shawarma

I'm going to say this for anyone who needs to hear it: Stop being a yes person. Yes, it has been a daunting year – and yes, for those of us coming out of respective lockdowns (depending on where you are in the world) it can feel borderline ludicrous to opt for 'opting out' after...

Easy Raw Summer Rolls

I don't always know what I want to write about when it comes to these recipe preambles, other times, I log on guns-a-blazin'. Today, it's the latter. Like many, I have spent a lot of time trying to reconcile my jarring insecurities with what I know to be the truth; that I am by and...

Superseed Kale Salad

We're almost at day 70. It's hard to even imagine what our lives were beyond this current phase, and even more difficult to picture what the eventual return to "normalcy" will look like. In the face of uncertainty, I've found solace in the little things. Pruning my unnecessarily large collection of house plants (that's 15...

Green Goddess Soup

I have to admit – Ramadan in quarantine isn't that bad after all. Yes, gatherings with family and friends now happen exclusively online (thank you, Zoom) – but other than that I've managed to uphold quite a few of my personal Ramadan "traditions" this year. Staying up too late. Eating one too many Arabic desserts...

Cardamom Rose Chia Pudding

If there's one thing that hasn't been in short supply in as of late, it's time. Time to adjust to the new status quo, time to digest (or sometimes completely avoid) the constant barrage of news headlines surrounding the current health crisis, and time to reflect. I won't attempt to summarise all of my quarantine...

Egyptian Green Bean Stew

A Ramadan spent in quarantine. I know I'm not alone in marveling at just how peculiar of a notion that is, but it is after all our reality, given the current circumstances. I won't lie, at first the idea of doing Ramadan totally solo this year (sans family, friends or co-workers) was incredibly daunting. Personally...

Easy Everyday Tofu Scramble

Ah 2020. To say that it has been a year would be a painstakingly obvious understatement, given the current state of affairs globally. While I would love nothing more than to spend the next 300 words or so musing about just how drastically my life has been impacted by recent happenings, I won't. Partly because...

UAE Conscious Gift Guide (for every season)

Before you say it – I know what you're thinking. Christmas is days away and I've only just gotten around to posting this guide now?! In my defense, I don't really celebrate Christmas. I mean, sure I do indulge in a little bit of holiday cheer (chiefly by partaking in the annual office Secret Santa gift exchange and...
