At BalkanFresh we know that sometimes you just can’t find the time to make big meals at home, but cooking doesn’t have to be difficult and time-consuming to enjoy great homemade Mediterranean food. 

We’ve compiled this quick list of easy-to-make Mediterranean meals that come together in a flash and will leave you feeling satisfied. 

#1 Shakshuka

This simple skillet recipe from The Mediterranean Dish is a warm and hearty breakfast featuring eggs, tasty veggies, and herbs. 

Plus, it’s a great way to use those tomatoes that have been hanging out in the fridge before they go bad; the best Shakshuka is made with almost overripe tomatoes. 

Serve with toast.

#2 Chicken and Quinoa Salad 

Two simple ingredients with infinite meal prepping possibilities: Chicken and quinoa. 

The Griddled Chicken with Quinoa Salad from BBC Goodfood is a solid recipe to start with, but don’t be afraid to make substitutions and additions with whatever you have in the kitchen. The beauty of chicken and quinoa is that you can dress them up with pretty much anything that sounds good.

Divide your creation into a few sealed containers for easy grab-and-go lunches during the week.

#3 Mediterranean Salad 

We can’t make a list of easy Mediterranean food without mentioning a classic salad. After all, any meal that doesn’t require us to use the stove is worth noting. 

Tasty’s quick and easy Chopped Mediterranean Salad is all you need for a quick lunch. Just chop up your veggies into chunks, drizzle with olive oil and red wine, and sprinkle some feta on top.

#4 Kourabiedes (Butter Cookies) 

When you hear “Mediterranean cooking” cookies usually don’t spring to mind, but these delightful Greek Butter cookies from My Greek Dish are unforgettable once you've had them - and they’re unforgettably easy to make! 

Traditionally, Greek Butter cookies, called Kourabiedes, are served during the winter holidays, Easter, and for special events. We think the simple ingredients and quick baking time are perfect any time of the year - especially if you need to whip up a quick dessert in a pinch.

#5 Baked Lemon Garlic Salmon

The star of the dish is of course a fresh salmon fillet that’s enhanced with just a few staple ingredients: Lemon, garlic, Kosher salt, and olive oil. 

Serve with some roasted veggies and orzo.
