I sometimes like when cultures clash....but it can also be a disaster ahahaha! What is your favorite twist on Greek classics? I must say I love lamb gyros from a good Greek diner, from what my Greek friends have told me, they don't eat lamb gyros in Greece

I grew up on authentic Greek food and do not enjoy americanized Greek food about 90% of the time I try it. There was one time I had a panini with olive oil, feta, spinach, and chicken that was Greek inspired and it was pretty good.

Hmmm that sounds good, like something I would make at LOL. I usually make "Americanized" Greek food at home when I don't have a lot of time. One of my favorite quick recipes is pasta salad with feta, olives, onions and tomatoes. Anything with feta and some tomatoes on top can me "Greekified"

Kalley Mera from Thailand.....No where on Earth can any one find Greek tomatoes, garlic and onions which taste like they do there!We used to have these wanderful gypsies coming to sell onions and garlic hanging on a string...I used to hang them out side the house..❤️
 

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 :)

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
