This collection of dairy free Mediterranean recipes is filled with beautiful recipes that are either naturally dairy free, or made with non-dairy substitutes.
This nourishing way of eating is based on the traditional foods of the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea. The diet focuses on daily consumption of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and healthy fats; weekly intake of fish, poultry, beans and eggs; a limited intake of red meat; and only moderate portions of dairy products.
Nutritional value always takes center stage. And a bit of healthy fat from ingredients like nuts and olive oil provides a welcome balance for any sugar carbs that may be present.
The recipes featured here are seasonal and showcase ripe and fresh ingredients from the markets. Like all dishes in the Mediterranean Diet, the majority of ingredients you’ll find here are in season and full of flavor.
Healthy fats are also encouraged in the Mediterranean diet. Nutritionally speaking, that’s a good thing. When you’re consuming sugar carbs, having a healthy fat in the mix can help to keep blood sugar from spiking too rapidly.
These dairy free Mediteranean recipes are also great for anyone who enjoys a plant-based, vegan, or vegetarian diet.
