A Traditional Egyptian Whole Food Sweet!


During this last month, we’ve been posting all Egyptian recipes in celebration of VeganMoFo

One traditional way to eat dates is to take a dried date, split it in half just enough to not break apart, stuff it with a nut of some kind, and enjoy the balance of protein and natural sweetness.  A favorite of ours is the almond filling.
