Lebanese Mujaddara

March 19, 2020

Delicious vegan Lebanese dish. It’s ridiculously easy and literally takes 30 min to make. Some people call it mujaddara msafeye.

I add the cabbage salad sauce (lemon juice and olive oil) all over the mujjadara, and if i’m feeling good about myself i eat it with bread.
