Koshari | Egyptian Street Food | Naturally Vegan Foods Around the World

You probably won’t make this dish because it destroyed my kitchen. It used 5 pots and pans just to make it. It was really good though. And it was the « travel to Egypt » I wanted tonight. It’s Egyptian street food. So make it if you’re feeling ambitious and love food and culture as much as I do. But get yourself a good dish washer to help you out 😂
