Dear fellow food-lover,

The countries in the Eastern Mediterranean each boast unique culinary traditions, but throughout the region, you'll find meals featuring fresh ingredients, mouthwatering spice blends, and an abundance of small dishes meant to be shared with friends and family.

Happy cooking from the team at Oldways!
The Best of the Eastern Mediterranean
Get acquainted with classic Eastern Mediterranean dishes, including ful medames, shakshuka, baba ghanoush, falafel, and so much more.
Mousakka is a classic Eastern Mediterranean casserole. Our version is vegetarian, with protein-rich lentils and chickpeas (in place of the typical ground beef or lamb) layered with tomato, eggplant, and a delicious ricotta-feta topping.

This is one of our favorite easy weeknight suppers. If you have two cooks at home, one can man the grill while the other person quickly sautés the veggies. Otherwise, you can use a grill pan or even roast the chicken breasts.
