Ladolemono is a standard Greek marinade that is made of olive oil, lemon, and usually garlic, any herbs that you like (usually oregano) and then salt and pepper. I use it mainly for all meats and potatoes, boiled vegetables like cauliflower, beets, and broccoli. Its very light and refreshing and one of the healthiest dressings and marinades that you can use. When you potatoes with it in the oven, you can always add a little water to better cook the potatoes until they are fork tender. Let me know some other great uses!

I use just a little bit of mustard for the kick and a spoonful of honey and rosemary (mainly for the meat and potatoes).

I love adding a bit of honey and some coarse sea salt so that there is a balance of flavour

How to make Greek lentil rice pilaf

Rice pilaf is such a great dish but you don't really see it in many Greek restaurants. Its one of my favorite foods that I ate growing up :) Here is the recipe
  • 2/3 cup dried lentils, soaked in cold water for 2 hours
  • 1/3 cup Greek olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 large carrots, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3/4 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Greek honey
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon dried Greek oregano
  • 2 tablespoons fresh, chopped parsley
Strain the lentils and add them to a medium saucepan. Fill the pan with water so that the lentils are covered and bring to a boil over medium-high heat with the lid on the pan. Turn off the heat and let the lentils stand for about ten minutes. Strain them again and set them aside. Pour the olive oil into a deep skillet. Set the heat to medium and let it warm for about a minute. Add the onions and saute until they just begin to get soft. This should take about 2-3 minutes. Add the carrots and saute for anothr 2-3 minutes.

Stir in the coriander, allspice, cinnamon, and bay leaves. Stir in the rice and lentils. Cook the mixture together for about a minute. Stir in the broth, salt, pepper, honey, vinegar, and oregano. Cover the skillet and cook until the mixture comes to a boil. Reduce to a simmer on low heat and cook until all the water absorbs. Stir in the parsley just before serving.

This is what the pilafi will end up looking like
