Veganizing Middle Eastern Classics with Sadaf Foods

Middle Eastern cuisine is celebrated for its vibrant flavors, aromatic spices, and diverse ingredients. At the heart of many traditional dishes are plant-based elements—grains, legumes, vegetables, and nuts—that have nourished generations. Sadaf Foods brings these staples to your kitchen, making it easier than ever to explore vegan versions of beloved Middle Eastern classics.

Hummus Bi Tahini: A Timeless Favorite

Hummus, a staple in Middle Eastern diets, is inherently vegan. Our recipe elevates the classic hummus bi tahini with Sadaf's premium tahini paste and chickpeas, blended to creamy perfection. Accentuated with a drizzle of Sadaf olive oil and a sprinkle of paprika, this dish serves as a versatile appetizer or snack.

Stuffed Grape Leaves: Dolma with a Twist

Dolmas are a testament to the versatility of Middle Eastern cuisine, often featuring meat-filled variations. Our vegan version incorporates a hearty filling of Sadaf's rice, pine nuts, and currants, seasoned with a blend of Sadaf's spices. Simmered in a tangy tomato sauce, these stuffed grape leaves are a satisfying and flavorful option for any meal.

Fesenjan: Pomegranate Walnut Stew

Traditionally made with poultry, our Fesenjan recipe replaces meat with hearty vegetables and legumes. The base of the stew stars Sadaf's pomegranate molasses and ground walnuts, creating a rich, tangy, and slightly sweet sauce. Serve this exquisite stew over Sadaf's steamed basmati rice for a comforting and luxurious meal.

Falafel: A Crispy Delight

No guide to vegan Middle Eastern cooking would be complete without falafel. Our mix, made from ground chickpeas and Sadaf's signature blend of herbs and spices, fries up into perfectly crispy balls. Serve them in a pita with fresh vegetables and a generous dollop of tahini sauce for a classic street food experience at home.

Shakshuka: Eggless and Exquisite

Shakshuka is typically prepared with eggs poached in a spicy tomato and pepper sauce. Our vegan adaptation uses tofu to mimic the eggs, absorbing the rich flavors of the sauce made with Sadaf's tomato paste and a warm spice mix. This dish offers a bold start to the day or a comforting dinner.
