1. Basbousa

While basbousa is originally Egyptian, it can be found throughout virtually all of the Middle East. To bess in Arabic means “to dredge,” which is where this dessert gets its name, because it’s made by massaging butter into semolina granules before adding the rest of the ingredients. Creating a vegan version of Basbousa by Noha Elbadry-Cloud that had the same rich-yet-light flavor and solid-yet-crumbly texture was tricky, but after much recipe testing, the result is breathtaking. Every bite is buttery, melt-in-your-mouth good and bursting with the gorgeous floral flavors of the soaking syrup. Fun fact, because of its sweetness, basbousais used as a term of endearment between loved ones.   Credit: Reprinted with permission from The Vegan Middle Eastern Cookbook by Noha Elbadry – Cloud.
