So many of us are trying to improve our diets, replacing meat-heavy dishes with ones that are predominantly plant-based. Those of us who prefer to reduce our meat consumption rather than completely eliminate meat and animal-derived ingredients should welcome the dishes we are making on The Frugal Flexitarian. Healthy dishes that are neither expensive nor tricky to make. The start of a new lifestyle.
Here at the Frugal Flexitarian, we are sharing our favourites with you – sometimes exploring cuisines from around the world as we do so, sometimes writing about ingredients and dishes from closer to home. We love the Mediterranean diet and many of our dishes are influenced by that healthy Mediterranean lifestyle. On a Gulet trip around Turkey and Greece we hung fishing rods from the Gulet as we travelled, caught sea bass and bream for supper. Our Turkish cook made an abundance of dishes using fresh vegetables, pulses and herbs that we picked up when we set anchor for the night in the tiny villages along the Mediterranean coastline – the perfect example of local and seasonal food. But, we’re painfully aware that our planet depends on minimising the carbon footprint of the food we eat, so you’ll find dishes from the British Isles and things you can make from ingredients you may be growing in your back garden.
