Bedouins – people of the desert – are Arabs and nomads who come from and continue to live primarily in the Arabian peninsula and North Africa. They’re found throughout Jordan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Oman, and Egypt, and consider themselves as true Arabs and the heirs of the glorious land; but they don’t lead an easy life. One can only imagine how difficult it is to find food, water, and other life necessities on a daily basis, especially when living in the middle of the desert. Wilfred Thesiger described the bedouin life as “hard and merciless…always hungry and usually thirsty.” However, we believe that when there’s a will, there’s always a way. These delicious bedouin dishes are here to prove it!
We rounded up a few famous bedouin dishes that are not only nutritious, but also delicious, showing how creative humans can actually be when it comes to cooking a whole meal with minimal tools and appliances.
