Mediterranean Recipes and Meal Ideas
We love the flavours of the Mediterranean, not to mention that their diet is well-celebrated for its many health benefits. The food and flavour combinations are a perfect balance of sweet, salty and savoury. The addition of olive oil, chickpeas, aubergines and other delicious ingredients really bring all these dishes to life.
Starters & Sides
If you’ve never heard of Kataifi, you’ll be shocked at how deliciously crispy it is. Kataifi is a pastry used in Mediterranean cuisine, the thin threads are light and crispy. The perfect balance for grilled halloumi.
Tabbouleh is not like any other ordinary side salad, it’s filled with parsley, onion and all that delicious Mediterranean goodness.
QUINOA SALAD WITH ROASTED CAULIFLOWER & CHICKPEAS
We love quinoa! This warm salad is topped with chickpeas that really adds an extra flavourful crunch! Let’s just say this spicy citrus dressing is a game-changer.
ROASTED BABY AUBERGINES WITH LENTILS, POMEGRANATE AND CHEVIN DRESSING
Aubergines are so wonderfully versatile, they are a perfect meat-free alternative because their texture when grilled becomes so soft that it almost melts in your mouth. Topped with delicious lentils, every bite will transport you to the Mediterranean.
