Mediterranean feasting

Eighteen months ago, pre-Covid, our family went to Egypt. It was fantastic and exciting and dusty and historical. We came home very enthusiastic about Mediterranean food. Since then, I crave pitas and creamy cucumber salads. I thought I would share some excellent recipes in case you would like to make a Mediterranean feast and in that way share a meal with us.

Shakshuka: who knew that eggs poached in tomato sauce could be so satisfying? It’s the feta cheese that makes this special.

Pitas: If you use allrecipes.com, you might already be acquainted with Chef John. These are a terrific texture.

Hummus: I modify this recipe a little (less tahini), but I like the very specific instructions.

Orzo salad: Giada has so many tasty pasta recipes. The addition of mint makes this one fun for Mediterranean night. I usually leave out the garbanzo beans and add a cheese, either mozzarella or feta.

Cucumber: I love tzatziki, but it’s a bit of work. This salad is also popular at our house.
