I personally don't love okra, but when its cooked right it can be so tasty! For reference to those of you who haven't tried it, its a vegetable that has a slimy texture and is cooked in a red sauce, which is mainly the reason people don't like it.

I wouldn't touch them like that (I generally don't like okra), but my wife bakes them in a tomato sauce with chicken... It's pretty good!

Pickled okra is really good btw, and they have a crunch to them when you pickle them.

Is it possible to use ground pork or lamb for Greek ground beef recipes?

Im not a huge fan of ground beef sometimes and I like to switch up the types of protein that I use. Has anyone tried making pastitsio or gemista with pork or lamb for example? How was it?

What to add to your melitzanosalata to spice it up

There are many things you can add to your Melitzanosalata to spice things up. Here are a few suggestions: crushed walnuts, roasted red peppers, spicy peppers, pomegranate seeds, tahini, crispy eggplant skin, crispy fried onions, green onions for garnishing. All of these will upgrade a classic dip :)

Greek fries are the best for a get together!

I like to buy frozen fries and make these at home in the oven by sprinkling some feta on top!!! So easy and too good :)
