e Salatet malfouf cabbage slaw
e Briam ('Greek ratatouille')
e Pumpkin, raisin and harissa pie
e Kibbet el raheb, 'monks' soup'
e Jewelled lentil moutzentra
e Rizogalo rose rice pudding with roasted strawberries
e Moustokouloura spiced grape, honey and chocolate biscuits
Whether you're vegan, vegetarian, or simply want to eat more plant-based food, Nistisima offers you tried and tested recipes that celebrate the very best of this tradition all bursting with flavour and all surprisingly vegan.
