5 Mediterranean Recipes You Must Add To Your Diet

The Mediterranean way of eating originates from traditional foods that people used to eat in countries such as Greece, Spain, Italy, and Southern France. The diet mainly consists of vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, legumes, whole grains/bread, seafood, and of course extra virgin olive oil. Raise a glass of red wine and enjoy a delicious and healthy way of eating with our new collection, "Mindfully Mediterranean."

7-Seed Crackers


As seeds are one of the staples of the Mediterranean diet, these 7 Seed Crackers are perfect. The crackers can be scored into shapes with a knife, pizza wheel, or cookie cutters once the dough is half baked. Once they are baked and cooled, break the crackers into bite-size pieces or gently break them into shapes.

Tip: Store the crackers in an airtight container for up to two weeks at room temperature. Additionally, the recipe yield will depend on the size and thickness of the crackers.





Green Shakshuka


So what exactly is Green Shakshuka? Shakshuka is traditionally a dish of poached eggs in a sauce of tomatoes, olive oil, peppers, onion, garlic, and other spices. Green Shakshuka is a delicious spin on the dish - it is loaded with leafy greens, some runny eggs, and spices galore!

Tip: This dish goes great with a serving of fresh, hot whole-grain bread. And for help with cutting the parchment to fit in the Varoma tray, our recipe development team recommends tearing off a piece of parchment paper wide enough to cover the tray. Then place the Varoma tray on top of the parchment and cut around the tray to form an oval shape.



Greek Rice


Greek Rice: simple and delicious. It is full of mouth-watering flavors such as zested lemon, fresh mint, feta cheese, and so much more. Another tasty vegetarian option that is easy to make and can make for a great meal or even a side dish.
