I LOVE Mediterranean food! The flavors are fresh and the use of whole foods is very healthy and appealing. Here I’ve taken some of my favorite ingredients and mashed them together but they go so well.
Cooking tip: You can use any vegetables you’d like, however always keep in mind that when you’re cooking them you should always start with the tougher veggies first and go adding the more tender ones as you go along. Here I’ve added the tomatoes at the end so they keep their shape without adding too much liquid and steaming the rest.
