Roasted Red Pepper Greek Yogurt Hummus is a creamy dip that pairs nicely with pita bread or fresh vegetables. Chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, spices and fire roasted red peppers are blended with Greek yogurt for added protein and creaminess making this not only healthy, but delicious! 

Are you just starting the Mediterranean diet? Are you looking for some easy, healthy recipes to get you started?

A Cedar Spoon is a great place to find recipes that can incorporate Mediterranean recipes into your diet and your lifestyle. My family is Lebanese and I grew up eating Mediterranean food. I love helping others appreciate and love food from that part of the world.

You can make some simple changes to your diet to follow the Mediterranean diet–like add more fish to your diet, eat more beans/legumes, use more oils in your cooking and snack on more veggies and nuts.

Where can I locate your Mediterranean recipes?

You can find my Mediterranean recipes {including many of my family recipes} on this page.
