Intensely flavorful and inherently healthy, Mediterranean food is one of the world's most appealing cuisines. They do it simply—with olive oil and garlic; with herbs and spices; with tomatoes and eggplants, peppers and squash, figs and peaches, and other seasonal produce. And of course there is crusty bread and local cheese, the freshest yogurt and endless wine. In this authoritative and anecdotal cookbook, award-winning author Martha Rose Shulman captures the vibrant flavors of the Mediterranean region in more than delicious vegetarian dishes that will appeal to everyone.
She presents authentic contemporary variations as well. You'll dine with her in Greek olive groves, feast on recipes handed down from mother to daughter for generations, and she offers her own tomatoes and fresh sardines in Croatia, savor coffee gelato in the streets of Bologna. At every turn in the road there is a new culinary reward. Much healthier and all the flavors are still there without weighing you down Spanikopita my go-to recipe for this too The kids loved it My son eats spinach??
YES, if it's in this he will! Falafel my favorite falafel recipe Turkish hummus uses yogurt instead of tahini, which my son is allergic to - really good and something I never would have thought to do. I'd use less garlic on this next time. Braised fennel with Parmesan - delicious! The only wish I have is that this book to have contained photos because I'm such a visual person, but this is still a great book to have on your shelf. I owned it for a year before I started cooking from it and I only wish I had started sooner.
Feb 24, Shellie Layers of Thought rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Recommended to Shellie Layers of Thought by: I liked the fact that it covers the entire Mediterranean including Africa and that the author includes little snippets of her experiences, sharing cultural insight and regional practices around the recipes.
The best part is that since the Mediterranean has a natural tendency to focus on vegetable dishes for a meal, the book does not feel like it's excluding meat. It's just featuring vegetables. It's perfect for omnivores looking to include more vegetable based foods in their d Excellent cookbook. It's perfect for omnivores looking to include more vegetable based foods in their diet. But the book does includes some cheese and eggs in the recipes which the resourceful vegan can tailor to fit their diet restrictions.
For fun, there's some suggestions for light libations like a splash of pastis with water, and wine mixed with juice from several of the Western European countries such as France, Italy, and Spain that are rather nice and civilized. Here are some things I have made and loved: Hearts of Romaine and Tomato salad - Simple and great Orange and Olive salad - didn't have cumin - but still delicious Tomato soup with cilantro and vermicelli - a Wonderful Soup!
Strata with Greens, or tomatoes and g Birthday present. Strata with Greens, or tomatoes and greens - Excellent! I used spinach and tomatoes Orecchiette with raw and cooked tomato sauce - very good Spaghetti with black pepper and Percorino - made with whole wheat fettucine added canned peas and cut up chicken - yummy Anise Butter cookies - Made for CRW - yummy!

I did have a great time mucking about in the bread chapter the Pugliese Bread alone might be worth the price of admission. And I made a roasted eggplant with tomato sauce and cheese that I'll make again.

I did start to feel, though, that Shulman thinks she's much, much better than me because she lives in L. Also her persistent use of double negatives was annoying. But I might forgive her because of the Pugliese Bread.

Sep 27, Lara rated it really liked it Shelves: This one is pretty amazing--no pictures, but TONS of information and basic recipes with lots of variations and just It feels very similar in concept and content to The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen , which I already own, but, you know, with dairy, so it's probably not worth having at home as well.
But I would definitely recommend this one if you're looking for a thorough Mediterranean vegetarian cookbook. Oh, gosh, I'm so sorry, guys, I'm just in a cookb This one is pretty amazing--no pictures, but TONS of information and basic recipes with lots of variations and just Oh, gosh, I'm so sorry, guys, I'm just in a cookbook obsession phase. It happens from time to time! I'll move on before too much longer, I swear!
Jan 23, Sasha rated it liked it Shelves: My one real disappointment--a vegetarian cookbook really must contain more bean recipes, as they are the nutritional backbone of a healthy vegetarian diet. There are 13 basic bean recipes, and more scattered here and there. Better than most cookbooks, but still not enough! Also, I was thrilled that there was actually some whole wheat or more often, half-whole wheat traditional bread recipes in here.
Again, not as many as I would like, but it's far more than I've found elsewhere.
Mediterranean Harvest : Vegetarian Recipes from the World's Healthiest Cuisines
Thank goodness for Martha Rose Shulman! Feb 05, Meredith rated it really liked it Shelves: I enjoyed reading this cookbook. I've only tried of the recipes, but they turned out great. I liked that it covered the entire Mediterranean region. Some of the recipes are really, really simple, while I noticed that a few had some obscure ingredients. For the most part though, it seemed like a regular grocery store should have what you need to cook out of this book.
Plus, Mediterranean food is delicious and healthy!
Mediterranean Harvest : Martha Rose Shulman :
Sep 07, Rachel rated it really liked it Shelves: A thorough cookbook that features vegetarian recipes not only from traditional Mediterranean countries such as Italy and Spain, but also Provence and Northern Africa. I liked that it included bread, egg and cheese dishes and desserts as well. Most of the recipes were pretty simplistic, although some involved ingredients that could be hard to find outside of a major metropolitan area or with extensive internet searching.
Mar 24, Lorie rated it liked it. This was a fun cookbook to read. I learned a lot. However, I haven't enjoyed a lot of the recipes inside. It has been a good reference, but I have learned that I don't necessarily like all of the ingredients that she uses, or recipes can be made easier.
