Our senior designer who has been with Smartpack Creativ for over ten years has shared with our blog followers a traditional Egyptian vegetarian dish from her birth country. Ghadear left Egypt at the age of eleven and this is one of her favourite dishes her grandmother used to make. The dish only takes about 30-40 minutes to make even if you are not making it in a beautiful new Creativ kitchen renovation.
