Greek Vegetable Pizzas Are an Easy, Cheesy, Plant-Based Family DinnerRecipes
Pizza night should be every night, as far as we’re concerned, so we’re happily making these pies on repeat. They’re loaded with colorful veggies like roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts, red onion, and Kalamata olives. But one thing makes them extra special: Daiya plant-based cheeze. Their deliciously dairy-free Mozzarella Style Cutting Board Shreds are nothing but an unexpected delight. They lend creamy, rich flavor and melty, stretchable joy to each and every slice.

How To Make Stuffed Grape Leaves (Dolmades)Recipes
One hot, sunny day in late June I found myself in a tiny Arab market in Jaffa, Tel Aviv, sifting through a box of cucumbers. I was with Deanna and Danya, the lovely ladies behind the popular Israeli food blog Matkonation, and we were ingredient shopping for an afternoon cooking expedition. On the menu: stuffed grape (or vine) leaves made with spiced lamb, fresh mint, dried currants, and a cooling cucumber-yogurt sauce.

How To Make the Best Diner-Style Greek SaladRecipes
Greek salad is a well-loved classic for many reasons. Its bright hue, the refreshing crisp of cucumber and chopped romaine, meaty tomatoes, briny olive, and creamy feta wrapped in an herby vinaigrette is darn hard to beat, even with the best chopped salads. While I love the salad at our local Greek restaurant, I’d argue that a diner-style Greek salad is the kind of recipe we should all master at home.

Recipe: Greek-Style Tuna SaladRecipes
Tuna salad that’s loaded with mayo and stuffed between two slices of wheat bread doesn’t thrill me — this guy, however, absolutely does. It’s the polar opposite: loaded with fresh vegetables and herbs, with not a trace of goopy mayo in sight. Taking inspiration from Greek ingredients and flavors, this tuna salad practically whisks you away to a breezy Greek island, even if you’re only digging into it at your desk.

Recipe: Couscous & Goat Cheese Stuffed TomatoesRecipes
These stuffed tomatoes are the essence of summer.

Recipe: Flat Bread with Dried Figs, Roquefort Cheese, and RosemaryRecipes
Last year I spent some time on Kea, a completely un-touristy Greek island off the coast of Athens. I went to spend a week cooking with Aglaia Kremezi, a thoughtful cook and talented teacher of Mediterranean cuisine. She had just finished the manuscript for a vegetarian cookbook and so many of the dishes I learned came from that body of work. My stained photocopied recipes and frayed notes from that trip have occupied a permanent place in my kitchen ever since that trip.

Recipe: One-Pot Orzo Pasta with Feta, Olives & ArtichokesRecipes
Instead of buying a one-way ticket to the Mediterranean, I’m going to crank up our wood stove, play some upbeat music, and make the Mediterranean come to my kitchen. This winter weather has been getting us down, but the fresh flavors of feta, artichokes, and olives in this dish are brightening our spirits and making our taste buds very happy. We even invited a few friends over for dinner and everyone agreed that this dish was a real treat on a cold winter night.

Recipe: Beef Kofta with TzatzikiRecipes
If you’re looking for a variation on the standard meatball, it’s time to consider kofta. It is essentially a spiced meatball with many versions that can trace their origin across the Eastern Mediterranean and Central and South Asia. Depending on the region, kofta can be made with any number of ground meats or seafood.

Keep a big bowl in your fridge for endless possibilities.
Feb 3, 2020
Recipe: Turkish-Style Shepherd’s PieRecipes
I have a bit of a love affair with shepherd’s pie, and I always make extra mashed potatoes just in case the spirit strikes me. Leftover mashed potatoes, after all, are a great start to any shepherd’s pie; they’re able to soak up that yumminess from the bubbling stew below, and easy enough to doctor up with a few fresh herbs and some warm cream if need be.
Feb 3, 2020
Recipe: Feta-Brined Chicken Breast with RosemaryRecipes
If you think boneless, skinless chicken breasts can never be succulent and moist, consider this the cooking method that will change your mind. The secret is feta. Yes, that salty, tangy cheese that you crumble over your salads can actually be transformed into a salty, tangy brine for your meat with the help of your trusty blender. What it does to the chicken is almost magical.
Feb 3, 2020
Recipe: Pasta with Hummus, Olives, Feta, and Red PepperRecipes
If you, like me, consider a tub of hummus to be a staple in your fridge for mid-afternoon snacking sessions, this is your ultimate pantry pasta. Hummus is far more than a dip — it’s a garlicky, creamy condiment that’s begging to be transformed into pasta sauce. It coats pasta just enough that it provides a luscious mouthfeel yet hardly weighs it down, which means there’s plenty of room for additions.

Weeknight Meal Recipe: Mediterranean Chicken Stew with Cinnamon CouscousRecipes
This recipe is my go-to meal for nights when I want to cook but I don’t want it to take all night. Filled with flavor, you’d never think that cooking time is only 20 minutes. And it has another key time-saving secret! That’s right: rotisserie chicken! Picking up a freshly roasted chicken and pulling the meat off the bones results in chicken that tastes like it’s been stewing all day. And you usually can even do this without a knife.

Appetizer Recipe: Mediterranean Turkey Meatballs with Herbed Yogurt SauceRecipes
This recipe came about as many do: in an effort to clean out the fridge before a little getaway. We had a bit of ground turkey in the refrigerator, some leftover feta and ricotta, and some Italian parsley. I remember reading about lentil meatballs on Sprouted Kitchen months back and have been dying to add lentils to my meatballs ever since. So, here we are:the Mediterranean turkey meatball was born.
Feb 3, 2020
Recipe: Mediterranean Cauliflower Couscous SaladRecipes
Ah, couscous! The food so nice they named it twice. Except this isn’t really couscous. It’s cauliflower. And I feel like I won a gold medal in the kitchen when my couscous-loving husband didn’t bat an eye while he gobbled up this “pretend” version. I’ll be the first to admit I don’t usually like when food is referred to something it’s not.

Recipe: Mediterranean Veggie Pita SandwichRecipes
Craving a fast and healthy lunch? This simple sandwich packs a lot of flavor and nutrition, which makes it ideal for an easy weekday meal. I love stuffing leftover ingredients from previous meals into a pita pocket, sprinkling in a little cheese, salt, pepper, and calling it good. Simple, fast and satisfying. Who has time for much more? The beginning of a new year can be a hectic time for many of us. Simple, healthy and accessible meals is where it’s at for me in 2015.

Recipe: Ottolenghi’s Bridget Jones’s Pan-Fried Salmon with Pine Nut SalsaRecipes

If you’ve seen the movie Bridget Jones’s Baby, this flavor-packed salmon will immediately ring a bell. And now, thanks to Ottolenghi’s new cookbook, Simple, you can recreate it at home.

This pasta salad follows this order — speckled with roasted eggplant, tangy feta, and fresh herbs, it’s just the kind of dinner your summer evening is asking for.

Recipe: Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken BurgerRecipes
We love classic burger condiments as much as the next person. But what if we told you that you could spread your burger bun with baba ghanoush, top the burger patties with sun-dried tomatoes, and opt for goat cheese instead of cheddar? That’s exactly what happens in these juicy chicken burgers, which are a leaner alternative to the classic cheeseburgers. Use this recipe as inspiration, then consider all the delicious flavor combinations you could create.
