Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and place the fava pods inside. Let the pods cook while the water boils for five minutes. Transfer the pods to a strainer and rinse with cold water. Split open the pods, remove the fava beans, and place the beans in a serving bowl. Toss in the olives, onion, and parsley. Prepare the ladolemono (olive oil, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper) Pour into the salad and toss. Serve right away or refrigerate for up 1-2 hours before serving. (Refrigerating it lets the flavors marinate a little bit). :) There you have it. Serve with warm toasted bread.

Love it! Thanks for sharing. I suggest adding fresh parsley or cilantro to the dip, it will really add more flavour and give it more of that greek color

This is truly one of my favorite all-time dishes in Greek cuisine. I used to get it all the time while in Greece, and I can't find it much in the United States. The goal is for me to learn how to make it like they do in Greece!
 

Did you know that fresh mint can help cure nausea?

Greeks have been using herbs for medicinal purposes for generations, and these recipes and tips have been passed down from generation to generation. Greek spearmint or mint is one of the best ways to cure nausea and an upset stomach. Of course, if you have a serious medical illness you should seek the help of a doctor because mint is not a replacement for medical treatment. Next time you feel ill and nauseous, try adding mint to your herbal tea and see what happens!

Pasteli is a wonderful sweet snack

Pasteli is one of the best snacks that you can keep in your bag when youre on the go! Its made of sesame seeds and honey and is super healthy. You can think of it as the Greek version of granola bars. The recipe is super simple, and if you'd like to make it I have attached some recipes below. 😀

All of the different shapes of baklava

Traditional Greek baklava is usually cut into triangles or squares, but there are many more very popular versions such as the round and rolled up ones. All baklava is pretty much exactly the same, only the shape is different. This video shows you all of the unique variations. I know that the video is in Turkish, but baklava is exactly the same no matter what country it comes from. These different shapes are definitely a little more difficult to make, and you'll need to be a bit more handy with the filo dough.

Have you ever made a traditional Greek rabbit recipe?

Rabbit is considered a delicacy in Greece, even though it's not so popular today. There are many different variations of rabbit that are made in Greece, but the most popular is a rabbit stew. The stew consists of tomato, carrots, celery, a whole rabbit, onions, garlic, and spices such as rosemary, allspice, bay leaf, pepper, and salt. This is a great recipe that I have tried myself and I like to make every now and then when I can find rabbit at the butcher or farmers market.

How to make refreshing mussels saganaki for the summer

Mussels might seem like an intimidating dish to cook, but they're actually pretty easy. I like to get fresh mussels from a fishmonger or a grocery store when they are available. I make sure to clean them really well on the outside to get all of the sand out, and I boil them once until they open and quickly rinse them so any sand inside will escape. After that, I follow this recipe and they come out perfect!
