When it comes to Mediterranean vegetables, one of my favorites is eggplant. Eggplant can be breaded, fried, grilled and prepared in so many ways it is hard not to love it. Eggplant's ability to absorb flavor makes it ideal for marinades and casseroles where the flavors of the ingredients all come together while baking. These eggplant recipes come from Greece, Italy and Lebanon, which have some of tastiest foods in the Mediterranean.
Zucchini is just as plentiful in the Mediterranean as it is everywhere else which is why there are so many Mediterranean zucchini recipes. On the island of Crete, zucchini is often fried or baked in extra virgin olive oil. If you like fried food, the zucchini recipes for zucchini fries and fritters will rock your world. Zucchini is also a great vegetable for anyone who is avoiding gluten. Below you will find a recipe for zucchini noodles that even pasta lovers like myself find equally as tasty as normal pasta noodles.
