Do you love the flavors of Mediterranean food? Me too! Here are 23 of my all-time favorite vegetarian Mediterranean recipes that brighten up your kitchen with fresh, healthy flavors.
If I ever were to follow a diet, it would be the Mediterranean diet. Because it’s not really a diet in the traditional sense of the word, but more a general way of eating. And, I mean, Mediterranean food is just plain delicious.
Part of what makes Mediterranean food so healthy are the ingredients that make it … unprocessed, plant-based food! Staple ingredients of the Mediterranean diet include: vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, seeds, legumes, and unrefined oils.
So if it’s vegetarian Mediterranean recipes you’re after, I’ve rounded up 23 of my favorites! These fresh meals are inspired by the cuisines of Greece, Italy, Israel, and their neighboring countries. Enjoy!
