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!
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!

In the Greek cuisine the list of pies is endless. Any kind of ingredient can become a pie, plus every region in the country has its own way of making pies. We are a nation that adores pies! No doubt about that!
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!
Spanakoryzo aka Greek style spinach with rice, is a legendary Greek family dish. Every child in the country grew up by eating at least once a week this simple, yet nutritious and tasty dish.
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!
