Food on Friday: Mediterranean Food


So what is Mediterranean Food?  Well, according to Mr Google  the most common ingredients are:

Balsamic Vinegar
Cheese like mozzarella
Herbs & spices like oregano, basil
        Olive oil
Vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers

So long as your dishes are vaguely Mediterranean they'll be fine for the collection – and of course contributions from Mediterranean cooks will be great!

To add your dishes, just put the name of the dish together with your blog name/name into the first Mr Linky box you will find below.  Then paste the url for your post about it into the second box.

I'll be pinning the dishes to this Pinboard. 


  1. Hi, Carole and all,

    Okay… Malta is an island in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, just south of Sicily. So, yes these are Mediterranean recipes!
    This post ( # 9 ) has links for over 20 recipes, including a link for Ma’s Maltese soups.
    Don’t be put off by the title - the recipes are delicious any time of the year and for any religious persuasion.

  2. My entry is from an Isreali chef that I tried a while back. It features pomegranate juice and some traditional Mediterranean seasoning.

  3. Hi Carole, how fun to feature Mediterranean food. One of my favorites! Thanks for hosting and I hope you have a lovely weekend.

  4. As you will see from the number of recipes I've brought (I had to stop in the end, it was getting a bit ostentatious, lol), Mediterranean food is up there on our favourites list! Thanks for including me! :D

  5. Thanks for the party, Carole! Have a great weekend!

  6. Hi Carole! Can't wait to see all the tasty foods! Thanks for hosting the party. Have a good week!

  7. Great idea, Carole! I married into a Greek family, and my "Greek for a Week" post features traditional Greek Lenten (Vegan) recipes - specially adapted for freezer cooking.

  8. I adore food from this part of the world. Thanks for the party! Cheers!

  9. As a Greek I have hundreds of recipes on my blog. I've posted a few but if you search "healthy recipes" - "Greek recipes" - "Lenten" on my blog's search engine you will find some of them.

  10. Though I can't claim the recipe as my own, I am very happy to list Ottolenghi's a recipe for Chickpeas w Rice & Currants. Great for a crowd!

  11. Everything sounds so good! Thanks, Carole!

  12. Hello! I've brought a Maltese Spaghetti Omelette and a Tortilla de Guisantes. The tortilla is seasoned with mint and is delicious with fresh or frozen peas.

  13. I have so many recipes, having lived in Spain and generally cook quite a bit from the region, but have linked one for now!

  14. Carole,
    You may have noticed I've spent the morning linking up to a whole host of Food On Friday posts! I had a backlog of emails in my inbox, several hundred, and after clearing out the spam I'm dealing with the rest. Like your emails, for FOF! I've been reading The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up and it's spilling over into my computer in addition to my closet and cabinets.
    Thank you for hosting--I'm glad to be caught up!

  15. I have about here is a favorite. My "Olive You" Chicken. Enjoy

  16. I'm sorry, I'm a little late to the party, but hopefully the dishes I brought will make up for it. Thanks for hosting this Carole, I love getting new ideas for food.

  17. Greek Scampi from our house!

  18. I'm late, late to your party:(
    Hope you enjoy the Pastitsio I brought
    to the party. A recipe from my Culinary Adventures
    Series~ Lynn
