Situated in the very south of the Mediterranean, Greece has influenced culture and society for thousands of years. It has given us democracy, classical philosophy, and the Olympic games, so it’s not surprising that the nation has had an influence on the Western diet through the ages.
Greek gyros are one meal that has stood the test of time, and no wonder. Greek gyros are simple and delicious. Made by stripping meat from a spit-roast and serving in a pitta bread with sauce and sometimes chips, gyros can also be made in the comfort of your kitchen as well.
Sure, there are lots of meat dishes from the Greek archipelago; that’s partly because of the history and traditions of the region. But it’s not all about animal-based foods; Greek salad is known worldwide for its flavors and tasty ingredients. The salad can be eaten as a main dish.
It’s easy to make delicious greek salad at home; all you need is a mixture of Mediterranean vegetables, including tomatoes, cucumbers, courgettes, onions, and olives. All of the ingredients should be diced and thrown together. Don’t forget the classic dressing and cheese.
Now and again, we all have a craving for some classic Mexican food. It is one of the simplest and tastiest meals for a family gathering or a fairly healthy snack when you are on the move. Mexican tacos are one of the most popular Mexican foods you can find, and perfect for foodies.
If you want to make Mexican tacos, you will need some raw materials. Tacos normally contain shredded meat of some kind – usually beef or chicken. They also contain rice, vegetables, and sauces. If you’re a plant-based foodie, you can use seitan or tempeh instead of animal meat.
Sukiyaki is a kind of Japanese hot pot that is popular as a family meal or a meal in a restaurant. If you haven’t tried sukiyaki before, don’t worry, you don’t need to board a long-haul flight to get there; you only need to find an online recipe and source ingredients in your local town or village.
If you want to make sukiyaki yourself, you will need a hot pot to stew the ingredients in; you will also need some beef or a beef alternative, tofu, scallions, leafy vegetables, shiitake mushrooms, glass noodles, and udon noodles. Everything goes into the pot, and an egg is cracked on top.
If you want to explore the food of the Indian subcontinent, there’s no better place to start than with Indian Biryani. This popular rice dish has been enjoyed for centuries by families in the region; it is spicy, flavorsome, and filling. It’s also simple to make from the comfort of home.
