I don't follow the Mediterranean "diet" but I enjoy the recipes. The Mediterranean food pyramid is interesting in comparison to the United States.

Vegetarian Black Bean Cakes with Orange-Basil Salsa

These bean cakes are yummy and great for you. Served with the salsa, it makes a very colorful and festive presentation. I serve these with a lite side salad. Plenty of protein and fiber. Even my meat loving hubby loves this meal.Submitted by BCJL13

Cocoa Crusted Pork Tenderloin

This dish inspired by Costa Rican spices seems exotic, but it uses spices and ingredients you already have around the house: coffee, cocoa and cinnamon. You'll wonder why you've been relegating these flavorings to dessert! Submitted by CHEF_MEG
