It’s undeniable the wonders that meat does to food. Whether it’s the star of the dish or an optional ingredient, the flavors that meat adds to the dining experience are amazing. This is why most people get skeptical when presented with culinary innovations without a single speck of meat in it.
No-meat dishes aren’t necessarily boring or simply just a health fad. You’re probably not aware of the many varieties of dishes that don’t feature meat in them, but are still stunningly delicious.
Middle-Eastern cuisine has found various ways to create amazing dishes that wouldn’t even make you think that there’s no protein in it. The use of an enticing combination of vivid spices and other culinary components, makes its dishes delectable works of art. Saj Bistro is a prominent Lebanese restaurant in Dubai that has embraced the challenge and made its mark on the menu.
1. HUMMUS WITH FRESH TORTILLAS: Hummus is a delightful creation made from chickpeas and is loved the world over for its taste and health profile. It has been enjoyed by people far and wide for centuries and is to-date, one of the most famous Middle-Eastern staples. The trick is to get the consistency just right. Saj Bistro serves it up with some of their freshly home-baked tortillas to indulge in. Yum!
2. GRILLED HALLOUMI: You’ll find Halloumi on their menu quite a lot, and with good reason too. Halloumi is one of the region’s premier cheeses, and no Lebanese restaurant in Dubai is quite complete without it. Since it can be tossed up in a pan while maintaining its consistency, grilling it has become a real novelty. Complete with tomatoes, cucumber, olives and mint leaves, it not only ticks off the box for flavour, but also for optimum nutrition.
3. ZAATAR FACE-UP: The simplicity of thyme, olive oil and toasted sesame put together atop warm pizza dough makes this face-up a classic treat you’ll never get tired of. It is also one of the dishes that is through and through a representation of the region as zaatar is a staple of Lebanese cuisine. As a Lebanese restaurant in Dubai specializing in the fusion of modern and Mediterranean cuisine, Saj Bistro remains true to its roots with this dish!
