Cauliflower is a vegetable very common in Greek cuisine. Basically, we enjoy it cooked and served as a simple salad, but we like it fried as well. Cut into small florets and deep fried in olive oil it is a wonderful appetizer that everyone enjoys.
Beetroot salads are one of the finest salads, naturally thanks to the presence of this wonderful- in flavor and in color!- root vegetable. In Greece we make a very special salad with beetroots that’s not exactly like a salad, but mostly it reminds you of a dip! Either way, it is utterly delicious!
On today’s new blog post we’ve got some lovely zucchini fries. Elegant but still crunchy, these zucchini fries are so delicious in their Greek flavors which are enhanced with a wonderful Greek style yoghurt dip!
Our dish today is a very special one! Made usually in summer when peppers are in abundance it can be served as an appetizer and it will thrill everyone! It’s so delicious!
Today is a national holiday in Greece. Regarding the Greek Orthodox Church, it is Clean Monday (Kathará Deftéra) a religious feast equivalent to Shrove Monday or Mardi Gras. Actually it is the first day of the pre-Easter lent period that lasts for 40 days.
There’s no doubt that our favorite summer appetizer is thinly sliced zucchinis fried in olive oil! They’re so scrumptious, so delicious that you’ll find yourself having a hard time trying to stop eating them!
They go very well with a glass of beer, some retsina wine or even better a glass of ouzo on ice!
As we have mentioned before in our blog, Greeks adore eating fritters as appetizers. We make them with meat, with vegetables but also with legumes. The most popular ones made with legumes are chickpea fritters. Soft in the inside, crunchy on the outside and flavored with different herbs, they are so delicious that you just can’t stop eating them!
