I’m often asked if you can eat the Mediterranean Diet in winter. The answer is a resounding yes! If my wife and I can eat Mediterranean here in New England, I am pretty sure anyone can do it. We enjoy both winter vegetables that we make winter recipes with, but also summer vegetables that we have frozen or preserved. There is a certain indescribable joy I feel when we are hunkered in because of a snow storm and we are eating pesto pasta from pesto I froze in the summer.
Don’t forget that much of the Mediterranean has winter. They also have many of the same winter vegetables that we have. Recipes with carrots, potatoes, squash, cabbage and kale are plentiful in the Mediterranean. Here are 7 of our favorite winter recipes. Enjoy!
