Greek veggie stock can be used for a number of recipes such as lentils, fava beans, or any other bean, veggie or soup recipe. Making veggie stock is pretty simple, and it's especially great when you save up veggie scraps from cooking and put them in the freezer. All you need to do is boil any vegetable scraps on very low for three hours and then you have veggie stock! The best veggies to use are carrots, peppers, onions, and greens such swiss chard. I always like to add a large glug of olive oil in my veggie stock to add a little bit of extra fat and flavor.

I really need to make and freeze this, I’m always caught short for quality stock.

I have a super small freezer so I find it super hard to freeze stock! Sometimes I stop by a butcher who sells cheap beef broth but fresh veggie broth is hard to come by.

Good idea. How do you make our veggie stock? Do you sautés the vegetables first?

Its grilling season!

I’m so excited! This is the first day that I’ve been able to get outside and start grilling. I made some chicken, pork chops, and beef tenderloin seasoned with lemon and oregano. Is anyone else grilling this summer? 😎

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.

Is it easy to eat gluten free in Greece?

My husband has a gluten allergy and it’s been pretty difficult traveling and eating gluten free. There have been many cases where people tell us that something is gluten free and it’s actually not, and he ends up having an allergic reaction. Is anyone gluten free and has traveled around Greece? How difficult was it and can you share a bit about your experience?
