How to cook Mediterranean food in 2018

Food network Winco has been making its way into your fridge for a long time, so I figured I’d make a quick guide to it, and a quick tutorial on how to get started.1.

Choose a recipe with a good mix of ingredients.

I have to admit, I was pretty excited when I first saw this dish at the supermarket, and the food writer was really enthusiastic about it.

But I found the combination of ingredients was quite lacking.

It was a bit of a challenge to find a good Mediterranean food recipe with enough flavour, with a little something extra for the palate, and I think that’s a bit unfair to Winco. 


Find the right flavour.

For me, the biggest challenge was finding the right balance between sweet, savoury, sour and salty.

And the sweet one, I think, is what really impressed me. 3.

Mix it up with different types of herbs and spices.

The Mediterranean food blog, My Vegetarian Kitchen, has a great post on how herbs can add flavour to the dish, so if you’re not familiar with the topic, here’s a list of some herbs to get you started.


Have a little bit of fun with the ingredients.

I found this to be the most fun part of the recipe, as the ingredients all needed to be a bit different for this dish.

If I had had more ingredients to play with, I might have used more fresh herbs and maybe cooked the dish more slowly.


Add some fresh fruit.

When I saw this at the grocery store, I realised I had to add some fresh grapes.

Grapes can add a really nice sweet crunch to the flavour. 


Add a little more olive oil.

This is another ingredient that was very important to me.

My husband really loved this dish, and we’re planning to eat it again.

You can also add some olive oil to the pasta to get a bit more flavour, but I wouldnt recommend it as it can be a little over-done. 


Add more salt and pepper.

Now that the dish was all in place, I could start to see how this dish would taste. 


Add fresh herbs.

After making this for the first time, I’m really excited to add fresh herbs to the recipe.

Some of my favourites are parsley and basil, and these two ingredients were a big hit. 


Make it taste delicious! 

As I was writing this post, I had just finished my meal and had a little too much left over to share, so this is the final recipe for this post. 

It’s a great way to add a little extra spice and flavour to a dish, with just a little effort. 

Have a lovely day, winco readers!
