Milk soup sounds a bit strange to those who haven't heard of it before but its totally worth trying this recipe out! In Greek, this soup is called Matsi me Gala. It is a very old, traditional recipe that is still being served all over Greece but its not as popular now.

- 4 cups water
- Salt, to taste
- 1/2 pound hilopites, orzo, or other pasta (fresh, if you can find it) – choose gluten free if following a gluten free diet
- 4 cups milk (goal milk is traditional, but any milk can be used)
- 3 tablespoons Greek olive oil

Add the water to a large pot and add a generous pinch of salt. Bring the water to a boil on high heat with the pot covered. Add the noodles and cook according to the package directions.

While the noodles cook, add the milk to another saucepan and heat gently over medium-low heat. Once the pasta is cooked about 3/4 of the way, add the heated milk to the large pot with the pasta and stir. Cook the ingredients together the rest of the way. Add olive oil just before serving.



It does sound odd - but it does have potential! I have never seen it while in Greece, do you know where they typically eat this? Or is it one of those things that people eat at home and you don't really see at restaurants?

How to spruce up your leftover keftedes!

I always find myself having leftover meatballs or keftedes need a bit of sprucing up the next day. What I like to do is make a tomato sauce with wine, and heat up the meatballs with the sauce so that they soak it up and don't stay dry. This is the recipe for the sauce

- sauté one onion and two garlic cloves with olive oil
- add half a jar of tomato paste
-add cumin, black pepper, ground clove and basil
-after all the spices have been cooked, add one cup of red wine
-once the wine is bubbling, add one jar of tomato sauce
-cook for about 20 minutes over medium heat

What is the best Greek food to sneak in vegetables for kids?

My kids absolutely hate eating vegetables and I am always looking for ways to sneak in more and more vegetables. Does anyone have good Greek dish recommendations that have vegetables that don't taste too strong? Or existing recipes where I can add small pieces of veggies? I would really appreciate it, I am not the best chef but I am trying to switch it up these days and keep things healthy!

How long can you store phyllo in the freezer for?

I've been stocking up on phyllo from the Greek supermarket for quite some time… about six months in the freezer. How long will it stay fresh for? And when will I need to use it by? If anyone has advice I would really appreciate it.
