Autumn is officially here, so it’s time to cook some lovely comfort food. Stews are the ultimate comfort food for the first days of cold weather and today we’ve got for you a chicken stew with esti Kalamata olives!
Red mullet is one of the most common fish in the Greek seas. It is usually eaten fried but thanks to its delicious juices it is cooked in tomato sauce in very elegant dish, mainly popular in our islands.
It’s the ideal time of the year- somewhere between summer and autumn- to indulge into a salad with a favorite legume. Lentils are perhaps the best legumes we can use in a salad and they match perfectly with feta cheese. Add some herbs and abundant lemon juice and you’ve got the most wonderful lunch!
Sardines, fish rich in vitamins and minerals, are probably the most popular fish in Greece. Commonly found in the Greek seas, they are fished and consumed fresh.
Greek cuisine is full of wild greens. One of the most popular, which we usually enjoy eating during summer, is the amaranth greens, the “vlita” as we call them here in Greece.
They can be boiled and eaten as a salad but they are also cooked with zucchini in a popular dish that is called “yiachni”. It’s sort of a vegetable stew, very healthy and very easy to make!
Fresh tomatoes and feta cheese tart
Soutzoukakia is one of the most appreciated Greek dishes. They’re fluffy meatballs flavored with cumin and cooked in a rich tomato sauce.
