This traditional Spanish soup is full of wonderfully fresh flavours and packed with vitamins as all the vegetables are raw. Cool and refreshing, it is the ideal choice for a simple lunch or midsummer supper, with some seeded country-style bread or rolls. Or serve it as a light starter on a warm evening.

This is a quick, garlicky Mediterranean olive spread. Similar to the French tapenade, but without capers. Excellent served with good crusty bread.

This recipe can be eaten as a side dish or as a light meal. It's great with a pork chop and some crusty bread. Its origins date back to North Africa and is one of the very popular choices of tapas in Seville's bars.

I had this at a tapas bar in Spain way back and was able to figure out how to make it. It's an easy way to clean out the fridge and cupboard. And, perfect for a low carb diet. I was introduced to this as a tapa. But you could always pair it with a salad or other veggie side dish for dinner.

Serve this delectable dish with a fresh, warm loaf of crusty bread for mopping up all the delicious sauce. Use Spanish chorizo if you can't find the Portuguese chouriço.
