Kawaj | A Vegan Main Dish Recipe

Got some eggplants and veggie marrows that you can’t find a recipe for? Here’s a vegan Syrian recipe for you.

Portions: 3-4

Prep time: 30 minutes or so in the oven. Slicing or dicing: depends on how fast you are. If you’re slow like me. It took me a good 15 minutes or so. 😉


  • 2 veggie marrows
  • 2 small Indian eggplants
  • 2 medium sized potatoes
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 onion
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tbsp tomato sauce
  • 1/2 lemon squeezed

How do I make it?

Preheat oven to 180 C

Slide or dice all vegetables

Add tomato sauce , diced tomatoes, lemon juice and salt and pepper.

Spread in a pan and cover with aluminium foil

Cook for 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender. I personally don’t like veggies to be too mushy. Feel free to cook it to your liking.
