Dear fellow food-lover,

If you’re unsure how to venture into vegetarian territory, let the Mediterranean Diet be your guide. With sweet, juicy tomatoes, smoky roasted eggplant, creamy winter squash, and fruity olive oil, you won’t even miss the meat.

Happy cooking from the team at Oldways!
The Mediterranean Vegetarian
The heart and soul of the Mediterranean Diet is whole plant foods—that is, seasonal fruits and vegetables, beans, grains, nuts and seeds, and olive oil.
Enjoy the savory flavors of a sausage pizza—without the meat! Walnuts, fennel seed, beans and spices create a delicious topping for your next pizza night.

This creamy soup is dairy-free and full of warming spices. Apples are the perfect accompaniment to the earthy flavor of parsnips. Omit the honey to make this recipe vegan.
