Turkish and Tunisian recipes fall under this general heading, both made with vegetables for a full hit of Eastern promise...
This Middle Eastern salad is so pretty and summery, and if you have mint in the garden that is growing as wild as a jungle – as mine does – it's a wonderful way to use some of it!
Unlike the classic gazpacho, this version includes the lovely aniseed flavours of fennel for a really Mediterranean touch. We know you'll love it and, if the weather is less than summery, it can also be served warm.
Eat these hot or cold: with plenty of Mediterranean flavours - cinnamon, pine nuts, thyme - these wonderful summery stuffed tomatoes are a good way of using up a glut from the garden and will please vegetarians no end.
On their own, lentils can be a bit bland, but with this spiced lentil cakes Delia has added plenty of flavour with tomato, herbs and spices. A brilliant vegetarian recipe that's cheap and easy to make, but also extremely nutritious and filling.
You can now buy vine leaves in supermarkets, so this easy vegetarian recipe just got even easier! It will take you to the Greek islands in seconds, filled as it is with all those flavours of the eastern Mediterranean.
Based on the Mediterranean salad, fattoush, this may sound unusual but go on, give it a try! We are confident you'll fall for its gutsy, robust flavours and textures. Great with barbecue food, or summery chicken and meat.
Part of Delia's Middle Eastern buffet menu, these gorgeous koftas or meatballs serve 12 and have a great hit of chilli to spice them up!
Delia discovered this wonderful, hearty spicy soup in a charity cookbook. As she says, it really hits the spot on a cold day...
Based on a classic French dish, this couldn't be easier to make, with the tarragon, sherry vinegar and sherry adding plenty of flavour. A lovely summer casserole.
Ideally, this quick and easy storecupboard recipe should be enjoyed outside on a warm day: failing that, it will evoke memories of summer with every bite!
