The Georgian appetiser pkhali “could be a superfood for vegans all over the world,” an article from BBC says.

In the piece, Sarah Freeman reviews the country’s cuisine after her visit at the invitation of the Georgian National Tourism Administration.

“A culinary chameleon, pkhali can be slathered on toast as a vegan pâté, served mezze-style as a flavourful dip, or spooned – along with other cold appetisers – into a special bowl for sharing known as a gobi. Above all, pkhali is a mainstay of the supra – a structured dinner party that celebrates Georgian’s boundless hospitality and melting pot cuisine,” reads the article.

Freeman describes Georgian dishes, markets in the capital of Tbilisi and the country’s third largest city of Kutaisi, as well as food facilities where visitors can taste vegetarian dishes.
