Maghmour is a traditional Lebanese eggplant and chickpea stew that is both hearty and flavorful. It typically consists of diced eggplant, chickpeas, onions, garlic, and tomatoes cooked together with a blend of spices, such as cumin, cinnamon, and paprika. The dish is often finished with a drizzle of tangy lemon juice and fresh herbs, such as parsley or cilantro, to add a bright and refreshing touch.
Maghmour can be served hot as a main dish, often accompanied by rice or pita bread, or cold as a dip or side dish. It is a versatile and satisfying meal that can be enjoyed year-round and is a popular vegetarian option in Lebanese cuisine.
