With roots likely originating near the border of eastern Europe and Asia, Georgia's national dish of khachapuri, also known as every cheese lover's dream, has been on the cuisine scene for so long that its actual origins have proven quite hard to identify. The dish, which is centered around egg- and cheese-filled pastry, is such a staple in Georgia that the price of making it is used as a measure of inflation in different cities around the country.

If you're looking for a slightly fruity alternative to the standard cinnamon roll, give these berry streusel buns a try. Struesel, with its essential ingredients being butter, sugar, and flour, originated in Germany and translates to โ€œstrewn or scatter." (๐Ÿ“ท: @sarah_kieffer )
Thali is a popular style of meal in India that traditionally features a balance of six different flavors โ€”ย sweet, salty, bitter, sour, astringent, and spicy โ€” on a single platter. You'll find a great variation in each of the six offerings depending on the region you find yourself enjoying a thali, which may stretch as far as Nepal, Bangladesh, Fiji, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Mauritius, Malaysia, and Singapore.

The star ingredient of a traditional chana masala is unquestionably the chickpea, a staple in the Indian diet. These and other legumes, such as lentils and peas, are some of the most versatile and nutritious foods in the world, as they contain large amounts of protein and serve as healthy substitutes to meat. With much of the Indian population adhering to a vegetarian lifestyle, legumes mixed with grains, vegetables, a few dairy products, and of course, some serious spices, provide a wholesome and always-flavorful diet.

It's the special touches that make an already incredible meal truly memorable. For the last nine years, Executive Chef Michael Scioli has been enhancing dining experiences at the @constancehotels restaurants in Mauritius, inventively combining Asian ingredients with French techniques to create exquisite meals that are also easy on the eyes.

Remember the warm, gooey cookies you dreamed about as a kid? The universal kind that would melt onto your fingers, probably make a mess on your clothes and face, but the amazingly satisfying taste made it all so worth it? If so, then these vegan sea salt dark chocolate and cranberry oatmeal cookies might just make you feel a bit nostalgic. With a "buttery, muesli-like base that crunches satisfyingly before melting away mysteriously like a stranger in a fog," it will be difficult not to find yourself reaching for another once yours quickly disappears.

Looking for a more creative way to adorn your toast? Try adding an avocado rose. To start, using half of a ripe and firm avocado, peel off the skin and then thinly slice with the pit side facing down. Next, fan out the slices and curl one end toward the other until a flower-like shape forms. Once you have your rose, place on your favorite toast and enjoy! (๐Ÿ“ท: @pinchofyum )
@senorhuertas Asturian Cider House Feast @huertasnyc (๐Ÿ“ท: @rdegive ๐Ÿ“: Huertas NYC)
Shakshuka is a permanent staple of Middle Eastern cuisine, as well in many foodies' brunch repertoires โ€”ย though perhaps not so much for the vegan crowd. Love shakshuka but avoiding animal products? Have no fear, because @oatmeal_stories has you covered. Simply prepare as you would the regular version, and then just swap the egg for some scrambled tofu instead. Serve warm with grilled bread for a nutritious and balanced vegan meal.

This artfully crafted Lebanese feast from @auzaatar will crush even the strongest of cravings for fresh tabbouleh. Lebanese food stems back to ancient Levant, a region comprised of present-day Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Palestine, and Israel, and is widely known for its popular dishes like hummus and falafel. New to Lebanese cuisine? Try some labneh โ€”ย a smooth and tangy dip that perfectly pairs with vegetables or bread. (๐Ÿ“ท: @onehungryjew ๐Ÿ“: Au Za'atar)
Beautify your bread with this flowery spread โ€” salted honey "butter" made entirely from plant-based ingredients by @flowermedicine. Did you know that plants were the main form of medicine used before 500 B.C.? It was widely believed that they had both magical powers and medicinal qualities. (๐Ÿ“ท: @ohholybasil )
@rainbowplantlife made a delicious pasta sauce with red pepper, harissa, and pine nuts to pair with store-bought ravioli. Who says inexpensive has to mean dull? This spicy sauce is simple and can be thrown together in less than 20 minutes. (๐Ÿ“ท: @rainbowplantlife ) (๐Ÿ“Brooklyn, New York)
