Here is yet another example of healthy and vegetarian food you'll love to try. The smoothness of the cauliflower, quinoa, and other cooked vegetables pairs very well with the slight crunchiness resulted from baking. Serve them along with green salad and lemon wedges.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it. However, in time I kind of built on this habit and, slowly but surely, I began to turn toward the Mediterranean cuisine and, occasionally, even the Mediterranean diet. I am a curious and inquisitive person. So, pretty soon, I started trying to recreate what I’ve tasted or seen. At first, this proved to be hard work for my better half, as she supervised my new experiments. But lately, results really started to show, so wish me luck!
