From hummus to feta and olives to orzo, Mediterranean food is one of my favorite cuisines to eat. We all know by now that the Mediterranean diet is thought to be one of the healthiest in the world – which is a big reason why I like it. However, Mediterranean food is also extremely flavorful and easy to make.
If you’re still skeptical that Mediterranean food can be healthy, flavorful, and easy, just take a look at the Mediterranean recipes found on Cooking Light online. The online magazine has compiled a list of 26 tasty, healthy recipes from Greece, Morocco, Turkey, and other countries that span the Mediterranean. In this article, you’ll find such culinary favorites as:
- Chicken Souvlaki – a mixture of chicken, yogurt, feta, and dill
- Seared scallops with lemon orzo
- Pasta with sun-dried tomato and feta
- Lemon basil shrimp and pasta
- Garlic rosemary and lamb pizza
All of the recipes use the very freshest ingredients, as is typical of Mediterranean cuisine, and they all take around 20 minutes to make.
The only problem now is trying to decide what to make first. Opa!
