It's a project that we with the help of our teacher have decided to make to keep tourism back to Egypt. I'm one of the project members. My name is Walaa Sayed and my class is 1D. Me and my friends want to tell you something about Egypt. I chose to write about Egyptian food.

Egyptian Food




Molokhiyya


The food of Egypt would be incomplete without the mention of the Molokhiyya which is a leafy, green, summer vegetable. It is distinctively Egyptian and thick soup is made from it. The leaves are chopped and stewed in chicken stock, and served with or without pieces of rabbit, chicken, or lamb. This soup is served with either crushed bread or over rice.

Koshari

Koshari is a delicious Egyptian food. This dish is a mix of noodles, rice, garbanzo beans, lentils, fried onions and tomato sauce. This popular local dish is easy on the wallet.

Fuul

Fuul is another common Egypt food. Broad beans are cooked slowly until they become a bit soupy. They are then topped with butter, olive oil, or tahina and served with fresh pita bread.

Shawerma
Shawerma is another popular Egyptian dish. It is a sandwich that is made up using either lamb, chicken or goat. A large piece of meat is skewed with onion and tomato on top. It is roasted for a number of hours. The meat is then shaved off in thin slices and is put into a pita bread or other flatbread. Sometimes hummus, Amba sauce or pickled vegetables are put into the bread.

Fast Food

Fast food is any food that is quick, convenient, and usually inexpensive. You can buy fast food just about anywhere that sells food and snacks. Vending machines, drive-thru restaurants, and 24 hour convenience stores are probably the most common places to find fast food. It's so popular because for under $5.00 you can usually get a filling meal. However, fast food is inexpensive because it is usually made with cheaper ingredients such as high fat meat, refined grains, and added sugar and fats, instead of nutritious foods such as lean meats, fresh fruits, and vegetables.

At the end I want to tell you something.If you want to eat something delicious and never forget its taste, I advise you to choose the Egyptian food. I love communicating with you. I hope you enjoy reading and seeing my pictures and videos.
