Omani Vegetable Shurbah

The obvious choice for O was Oman. I was not very sure if I could find any vegetarian recipes since this country thrives on meat based dishes. I searched and searched and found the recipes that fitted the theme I have imposed on myself [ Soups/ stews and salads]for this Culinary journey across the globe

So here is the Omani style Vegetable soup and a unique Omani Cauliflower Bean and Rice Salad
