Superfast Mediterranean Recipes
From Morocco, to Italy, to Greece, to Turkey, to the Middle East, these recipes are tasty and none take more than 20 minutes to make.
A hallmark of Mediterranean dishes is that they derive deep flavor from simple ingredients prepared simply. This dish is a great example: You cook the shrimp in the water with the pasta, then add herby basil, briny capers, rich olive oil, and bright lemon juice, no further cooking required. Serve on a bed of spinach or alongside broccoli, asparagus, green beans, or any other green vegetable.
Tangy, yet cool Greek-style yogurt is the perfect counterpoint to spicy chicken tossed in a blend of Middle Eastern spices and sautéed to perfection. Your mouth will by watering from the moment smells begin wafting from your skillet.
The ever-expanding variety of quick grains on the market, like the farro used here, makes incorporating whole grains into daily meals easier. Feel free to substitute brown rice if you can't find farro.
