Newest Mediterranean Diet Recipes
Roasted Romaine Lettuce
"Tastes like a steak... if a steak were a salad". The perfect roasty, garlicy complement to any meal!
Crunchy Roasted Red Potatoes
Roasted red potatoes can be the side dish that steals the show on your table! A little crunchy, a little salty, a whole lot of potato goodness, these little spuds are virtually indestructible and don't even require you to peel them!
Mixed bean and lentil salad
The perfect summer dish or side dish. The dressing on this bean and lentil salad is super light and zesty, with the use of vinegar, garlic, and lime juice. It’s also full of good-for-you ingredients.
Chocolate Overnight Oats
Chocolate overnight oats are far and away my family's favorite breakfast. Chocolate for breakfast feels decadent & delicious. I love how oatmeal keeps my family's tummy full for hours and their blood sugar levels stable. The chia seeds give even more protein and fiber for staying power (as well as Omegas for a brain boost!). Even with the tiny bit of sugar that is in this recipe, they don’t have the sugar high and crash that cereal will give them. Give it a try!
The Best Homemade Hummus
Perfect for dipping veggies into, slathering on a wrap, or tossing with warm, cooked pasta, homemade hummus is incredibly versatile. It takes just a few minutes to make and keeps very well in the fridge for several days. You can add all kinds of ingredients to change up the flavors, too. Some of our favorites include: extra garlic, roasted red peppers, sun dried tomatoes, and hot sauce to make buffalo hummus.
Best Slow Cooker Tortilla Soup Recipe
Easy, healthy, and full of great Tex-Mex flavor, this slow cooker tortilla soup recipe is perfect for busy weeknights. If you want to make this vegetarian, add an extra can of black beans instead of the chicken. This soup is a little spicy on account of the chilies.
Lemon Garlic Dressing
Is homemade salad dressing healthy? If you love salads, you must try out this homemade salad dressing. It can be mixed up in just a few minutes. Our lemon garlic dressing is the perfect complement to greens and veggies. It'll take your salads to the next level without much effort.
Mediterranean Pasta with Tuna and Peas
Everything about this meal fits perfectly with the Mediterranean Diet! That includes: whole grains (the whole wheat spaghetti), a focus on veggies (peas, in this case), seafood or fish (canned tuna), and extra virgin olive oil (of course)!
Mediterranean Egg Muffin Cups
Eggs muffin cups are easy to make and can use up any veggies that you have in the fridge! Feel free to experiment to find a combination that you love. This recipe is as easy as adding chopped vegetables to a muffin tin. Then, simply layer the eggs on top. Pop in the oven for a bit and you are done!
Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip and Greens Smoothie
This vegan mint chocolate chip smoothie takes only a few minutes to put together, includes spinach or kale, and tastes amazingly close to a dairy-free milkshake. Pair it with some healthy protein, like a side of eggs or cottage cheese, for the perfect breakfast!
Healthy Apple Nachos
This snack is one that my kids often beg me to make. It’s a really fun snack to put together so I normally comply. Plus, I love this snack too, and it’s a great excuse to enjoy some apple nachos myself. Even better, my eight-year-old is kitchen-confident enough to make this apple nacho recipe herself and frequently does. All three of my kiddos love putting on their own toppings. You see, this is not just a healthy snack: it’s a snack-tivity (like, a snack and an activity combined into one awesome afternoon)!
Helping People to Change their Lives
"The Mediterranean Movement has been a great inspiration for me to incorporate healthier meals into my weekly cooking.
The recipes you post have ingredients I usually have on hand, the instructions are simple enough to pull off on a busy week night, and the results are mouth-watering!
I didn't realize how easy it would be to commit to healthier eating -- and I love that I still get a glass of red wine too."
"Your blog has been a great recipe source for me!
After almost 6 years of garbage eating, having 3 children, and dealing with extreme anxiety and depression I realized my biggest source of contention was food.
I was diagnosed with celiac disease and lactose intolerance stopped eating overly processed and fast food and have felt so much better since!
I'm now adopting a fully Mediterranean Diet for continued wellness."
"Due to Covid-19, I’m forced to learn to cook and am starting to enjoy it.
Following and learning from the Mediterranean Movement has been critical.
I’m learning about new dishes and trying some excellent meals, while also maintaining some sanity!"
