Milk Street: Tuesday Nights Mediterranean
125 Simple Weeknight Recipes from the World's Healthiest Cuisine
The Mediterranean diet is so much more than olive oil, grilled fish, and just-harvested vegetables—or its well-earned reputation for health. It is a diverse cuisine that encompasses the cultures and traditions of Southern Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. The food is direct, simple, and honest, served without disguise or embellishment.
Every Tuesday Nights recipe delivers big flavor, but the cooking is quick and easy. These 125 Mediterranean dinners are ready in under 45 minutes, with many taking just 20 minutes:
- Chicken alla Diavola with Broccoli
- Crispy Pasta with Chickpeas, Lemon and Parsley
- Fennel-Steamed Salmon with Warm Olive and Caper Vinaigrette
- Shrimp with Orzo, Tomatoes and Feta
- Panzanella with Fresh Mozzarella
- Green Shakshuka
- Flank Steak with Tomato-Eggplant Ragu
Chapters are organized by how you cook, focused on time—Fast (45 minutes), Faster (35 minutes), and Fastest (under 25 minutes)—while others dive into themes such as Hearty Vegetable Mains, Supper Soups, and Flat and Folded—including pizza, flatbreads, pita sandwiches, and panini. Many of the recipes require only one piece of cookware, and they all are built from pantry staples.
Dinner? Solved—every night of the week.
