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!
