The Mediterranean Diet is healthy, fresh, and delicious! Let’s take a look at the best Mediterranean Diet recipes, food pyramid, and food list to get you started in the kitchen. 

A collage of 9 healthy Mediterranean diet recipes.

There are around 1000 recipes here on the site, and the majority of them are Mediterranean-inspired. Perhaps that’s because the first cooking classes I took were while living in Italy in college, or because I just love the fresh and flavorful Mediterranean ingredients that work so well with a plant-based lifestyle, or maybe it’s my part-Greek heritage. 

Either way, I’m excited to share what this diet is all about, a traditional Mediterranean diet food list to add to your grocery list, what the food pyramid looks like, and over 30 of my very favorite recipes! I know you’ll love these flavors too, so I’ve included a simple wrap recipe at the end.

A staple part of any plant-based diet, legumes are a great addition to your pantry. Chocked full of protein and fiber, as well as very filling, it’s no wonder they’re so popular with vegans and vegetarians.

Though they’re commonplace in many other cuisines, they’re still a bit of a mystery to many Western chefs. No worries though, I’ll be walking you through everything you need to know about legumes in this article.

Canning salsa is a fantastic way to preserve tomatoes. This Mexican chunky salsa recipe for canning is adapted from the classic Ball recipe and is easy to make mild or hot.

Every summer through early fall our fresh tomato recipes get lots of love. Authentic Bruschetta, Marinara with Fresh Tomatoes, Roasted Tomato Soup, and Fresh Tomato Salsa are a few favorites, and they began with our plentiful homegrown tomatoes. And every summer, I get requests for a salsa recipe for canning, so here we are! 

Canning tomatoes, whether whole, as passata or pasta sauce, or salsa, is a great way to preserve them for use throughout the year. Unlike our fresh tomato salsa, the flavors and colors mellow a bit when canning salsa. However, this recipe is easy to make mild, or spicy, by simply adding more or fewer chili peppers or hot sauce. Use it as a dip for chips, add to burritos, or puree later and use as a summer marinade for grilling.

We have many, many recipes for using fresh tomatoes, after years of growing all types of tomatoes in the garden. While most of the time I use tomatoes with skins on, there are times when peeled tomatoes are necessary, especially for sauces (like this easy Pomodoro Sauce) and canning recipes. 

This summer I’ll be sharing more recipes for canning tomatoes, per popular request. But first, we need to know how to peel tomatoes, so let’s check it out.

I recently shared 5 Best Protein Shake Recipes and have another one to share. Medjool dates are fantastic for naturally sweetening desserts and smoothies. This healthy date shake is creamy, cold, and naturally sweet. It provides a natural energy boost and is perfect for breakfast, an afternoon snack, or a post-workout recovery protein snack. 

Date shakes are popular in many places but probably most famous in Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley, due to the date farms in those areas. You can find dates there, and one of the Coachella farms sells its fruit at our local Santa Barbara farmers market, but they are also available at most grocery stores. Try a Palm Springs date shake the next time you find yourself with Medjool dates to use up.

Does anyone else secretly love grocery shopping? Filling your pantry with nourishing, wholesome food is a luxury that many of us take for granted! However, we do realize that shopping can be slightly more challenging when you’re in a rush – or when you have tiny hands packing your cart with food items you just don’t need! It can also become a little challenging when you change your diet.

If you’re a beginner, you may be wondering, “what do vegans eat?!”. To help you whip around the store, here are our top tips – along with our ultimate vegan food list!

Sushi night is always a favorite at my house. We shared our first Sushi Recipe here way back in 2013 and more recently how to make perfect Sushi Rice in the Instant Pot or rice maker. 

While sushi burritos are certainly not an authentic Japanese or Mexican dish, they are a lot of fun to make. They also make sense as an on-the-go meal. While I’m not sure where this idea originated, I have seen sushi burritos at our local Whole Foods sushi bar, and there is even a restaurant in Northern California called Sushirrito that makes them. You can check out their site for even more filling inspiration. If you like this recipe, you’ll also love our Fresh Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce

Learn how to make Japanese hibachi-style yum yum sauce at home with this easy recipe! You’ll just need a few everyday ingredients you probably already have on hand. 

Sushi is dipped into a small white bowl filled with homemade Japanese yum yum sauce just like at Benihana hibachi restaurants!

Yum Yum sauce is a mayonnaise-based dipping sauce just like the ones found in Japanese steak houses, such as Benihana. Also referred to as Japanese Shrimp Sauce, Hibachi Sauce, or Benihana Yum Yum Sauce, it’s creamy, slightly tangy, a little smoky, and spicy. You can make it mild or spicy by adding cayenne or sriracha. Traditionally used for dipping shrimp or steak, this sauce can add flavor to many Japanese-inspired dishes. 

This yum yum sauce recipe can be made with healthier ingredients and is easy to make vegan or keto. Make a batch to use throughout the week. If you don’t happen to be a fan of mayo-based sauces, try our amazing Thai Peanut Sauce, which goes perfectly with Fresh Spring Rolls
