Sometimes part of the fun of ordering food in is that you get to try new tastes and flavours that you might not get around to making for yourself at home. For instance, would you think about making a stuffed vegetable dish? Often, though they're delicious, they can be time-consuming and relatively complicated to make. If it's out of your cooking comfort zone, it's less than likely that you'll make the effort.
Middle Eastern cuisines open up a world of opportunity when it comes to different ways to eat vegetables, and now that you can order home delivery from so many different Lebanese restaurants, there's no excuse not to expand your culinary experiences and try a new vegetable dish.
If you're looking for a Lebanese restaurant that specialises in street food that has an extra "je ne sais quoi" thanks to its French influence, resulting in innovative Lebanese cooking, then look no further. Bakchich is one of our Editions restaurants, hand-picked by our team for inclusion in our Leeds delivery zone as we think it has something special to offer our customers.
We recommend the Vegetarian Mezze. You'll get a platter of houmous, baba ghanoush, tabouleh, falafel, fattoush salad, served with a selection of pickles and home-made bread. In case you're wondering, baba ghanoush is a regular feature on Lebanese restaurant menus - a deliciously more-ish smoky aubergine dip. The Vegetarian Mezze is a perfect mix and match arrangement to enjoy at home, whether it's as a sharing starter or for you to enjoy on your own.
2. Comptoir Libanais
Comptoir Libanais has a menu that has so many choices you could order there every week and have a different meal every time. From mezze starters through to full-size Sirine specialty dishes, this Lebanese restaurant has something to suit every diner's palate.
Our favourite is the Falafel which is made in-house at Comptoir Libanais. It's a mix of chickpeas and broad beans, coriander, parsley, garlic and peppers; served with tahina sauce. Order as a dish on its own or with a Fattoush Salad - romaine lettuce, vine tomatoes, spring onion, mint & parsley with crispy pita and a sumac and apple vinaigrette dressing.That's pretty much all your five-a-day taken care of in one meal!
3. Oranasie Cafe
At the Oranasie Cafe, there's a huge choice of Moroccan and Middle Eastern dishes on the menu, including hot and cold tapas, wraps, tagines and couscous. Our stuffed vegetable pick at Oranasie is the Vegan Dolma Tagine. This is a mix of peppers and aubergines stuffed with tofu, mixed vegetables, lemon zest, coriander, garlic, basmatic rice and melted vegan cheese. It's served with bread, which is great for dipping in the tagine sauce.
These veggie-based dishes are great on their own, but can also complement a larger order of food, depending on how hungry you are.
