I don't usually fast, but I like to eat lenten food because I believe it can sometimes be healthier and I eat it as a "cleanse" of sorts every now and then. I find that many of the lenten recipes have beans, which im not a huge fan of...does anyone have any good Greek lenten recipes to recommend that don't have beans? Some of the ones that ive tried so far are okra, stuffed vegetables and a Greek version of Italian risotto. I would love to try more!


Coleslaw. Cabbage - finel sliced white and purple cabbage , grated carrots, sliced celery and capsicum. Combine well in serving bowl. Add non dairy spinach dip (instead of mayonnaise), salt and white pepper to taste. Combine well - i use my hands wearing disposable gloves. When making for 2 persons, I use 1/2 container of spinach dip. For family gatherings I use the whole container. Cover and keep refrigerated till ready to serve. I purchase the spinach dip from Aldi grocery stores. Καλή όρεξη.

There are many eggplant dishes such as imam baildi and moussaka (without beef)


My favorite lenten dish is actually cabbage salad with lemon and a little sea salt and tomato soup with rice!

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!

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? 😎

What are your favorite flavors of Greek ice cream?

Personally, I have to say baklava or kaïmaki. For those of you that haven’t tried kaïmaki, I highly recommend it. It’s a traditional Greek ice cream made from masticha. You can find it at most Greek grocery stores and ice cream stores. What is your favorite Greek ice cream flavor?

How to make thick and creamy Santorini fava!

Santorini fava is a classic staple in Santorini cuisine, and it has spread all over Greece. The dish is very simple to make, and taste even better when you use high-quality ingredients like Greek olive oil. It is a very budget friendly meal, and can stay in the fridge for a few days without going bad. It can get a bit dry so I suggest squeezing some lemon and adding a bit more olive oil if you're going to eat it over the course of a few days. Here is how you make it:
