A Vegan Mediterranean Feast

Vegan, Paleo Recipes that taste great

Mmmmm, that’s some good food right there.

   I’ve had a pretty fierce craving for baba ganoush. It’s one of those weird cravings that I sometimes get and nothing will satisfy it but the real deal.

I’ve tried making baba ganoush on one or two different occasion and it’s never come out right. This recipe worked great though! I also made Cumin Roasted Carrot coins, Fennel Slaw with Mint and Spiced Cantaloupe.  I think some falafel would round out this meal nicely. Dinner was awesome, we didn’t even have left overs to box up.

All of the recipes in this post came from The Clothes Make the Girl Blog. It’s a Paleo Blog rather than a Vegan blog, but don’t be scared. She has some awesome recipes posted and a cookbook to boot!












Vegan, Paleo Baba ganoush Recipe

Baba Ganoush Recipe

I loved this. All you need to make this is 2lbs of Japanese Eggplant, 1/4 cup tahini, 2 cloves of Garlic, 2T of lemon juice, 2t of kosher salt and 1T of parsley for garnish. I omitted the parsley. Instead I sprinkled on some sumac, because that’s just how I like to eat my baba ganoush. The olives were thrown in to fill in the gap that we made while “sampling” the Baba Ganoush. We just couldn’t stop, it was that good. To save on calories we used cucumber slices to scoop it up. Yummy, yummy stuff. As a side note, I forgot when I purchased my eggplants that I no longer have a food processor, so this recipe was made with a Magic Bullet.

Fennel Slaw with Mint Recipe

This was an unexpected surprise. If you make this, get the biggest head of fennel you can find.  I always core my fennel and my head wasn’t all that big to begin with, so there wasn’t much to go around. I did not end up using all of the dressing. I used the magic bullet in this recipe too.  It’s a handy little bugger.





Vegan,Paleo Friendly Spiced Cantaloupe Recipe

Spiced Cantaloupe Recipe

This was the perfect dessert for the meal and it’s so, so simple. I usually just toss my melon with some minced, candied ginger and call it good but no more! All you need for this vegan recipe is a perfectly ripe melon, cardamom, paprika and some sea salt.





Vegan Paleo Recipe for Cumin Carrots

Cumin Roasted Carrot Coins Recipe


Coconut Oil


Salt and Pepper to taste

Vegan, easy, tasty and packed with flavor. That’s really all I need to say about this recipe.

There is an obvious protein missing from this meal. Unfortunately, I’m unable to eat vegan at this time. We ate the above meal with meatballs. I can’t eat any grains at all, but my daughter can. So some time soon I’m going to try making the Merguez Meatballs with some beef style gimme lean. If you aren’t up to experimenting in the kitchen, you could add in some falafel or roasted garbanzo beans. Dolmas would also be tasty, OMG I miss those..
