When you think of pizza you automatically think of that Italian classic with dough base or the healthier modern version made with a cauliflower base. Either way it is a big flat base with various toppings. My aubergine mini pizzas are nothing like that, they are simple and healthy and the aubergine is the base.
This fried beetroot dish is my take on a Greek standard dish served as part of a meze sharing starter or as a side veggie to your main course. Beetroot is available in winter and is often overlooked as a veggie and thought of as something more often found in a pickle jar.
I’m on a bit of a health kick with my recipes just now and this kale and spinach souffle omelette is no exception. Sometimes you just want to ditch the carbs and really get into those veggies and know that the comfort food you’re making is also super healthy too.
This is a simple healthy fish pie recipe whereby I mean that I’ve omitted the usual potato topping in favour of a creamy sauce with almonds. This is for the days when you want to go all out healthy and have some comfort food at the same time.
Minced beef with courgettes and hummus is one of my Greek inspired dishes and a real comfort food staple in this house. Any variation of mince is considered standard fare here in Scotland, we are brought up on mince and tatties after-all, but this dish raises the humble mince to new levels.
Beans and pulses as a staple of the Mediterranean diet which is partly why it is such a healthy way of eating. This simple recipe for black eyed beans with spinach and fennel is tasty, healthy and vegetarian too, oh, and it’s Greek as well so that makes it even better in my book!
Simple vegetable dishes are a staple of Mediterranean cooking and these honey roasted courgettes with feta are a little taste of Greek sunshine on a plate. Ideal for serving as part of a meze style starter with other small dishes or as a vegetable side dish to your main course.
This is summer eating at it’s best, light yet filling, healthy and tasty too. My salmon and pesto rolls make the perfect lunch to eat outdoors with friends (should the weather oblige) or a good light supper dish too served with this Provencal style salad.
