Spanakopita Triangles

Cooking with pastry is great if you want a quick meal/snack idea. You can use it with savoury things but also sweet ones too. I’ve used puff pastry several times for different occasions – some examples are Cheese & Onion Pinwheels and Pigs in a Blanket. Another pastry that is also popular but I haven’t…

Recipe #32: Fresh Greek Nachos with Herbed Tahini Sauce

Nachos are my jam. What’s not to like about crispy chips and tons of gooey cheese? Nothing, that was a rhetorical question πŸ˜‰ . I don’t usually like to mess with a classic, but these greek nachos are truly something else. I guess I should make it clear that there is no melty cheese on…

Recipe #98: Grilled Chicken Souvlaki

I try to cook the recipes a few days before I plan on posting just to have enough time to draft the post and whatnot, and the timing was perfect for this chicken souvlaki. The weather has been really weird recently but the other day, it was super sunny and like 10Β°C which was beautiful….

Recipe #89: Greek Lentil Salad

I really love greek salad. I love all the veggies and feta cheese and the dressing with lots of garlic and oregano. It’s just so good. So, it makes sense that I enjoyed this salad too. This salad had all the things I love about traditional greek salad but with the addition of lentils which…

Recipe #85: Mediterranean Turkey Burgers

Burgers are such a great dinner and they’re so versatile to make. These ones were made with ground turkey so they were much lighter than a regular beef burger, and they had a nice greek taste. I really liked all the spinach in them, it made them healthier too. I also liked the addition of…

Recipe #83: Strawberry & Watermelon Salad

I have not made a salad from this cookbook that I have not enjoyed. Seriously, every salad has been delicious and I am so impressed. There is always so much colour and freshness, and it really makes it easy to eat healthy. This strawberry and watermelon salad was so good. I loved the sweetness of…

Recipe #55: Mediterranean Grilled Vegetable Pizzas

Pizza. Always a good choice for dinner. Yes, there was cheese, but this one was pretty healthy because it was packed with so many veggies. You need the balance of good and bad. But for taste, this pizza was all good. There weren’t too many ingredients so it’s hard for it to have been bad,…

Roasted Vegetable Couscous Salad

Got home after work and I really just wanted to eat something healthy, delicious, and most importantly fast. I chopped some zucchini and bell pepper, tossed them with oil, salt, pepper and oregano and roasted them for about 15 minutes. While that was going, I chopped some olives and tomatoes, then made 1/2 cup (raw)…

Greek Watermelon and Chickpea Salad

I know my previous post is a Greek salad, but this one has a twist. Instead of this one being lettuce based, I used watermelon and chickpeas. Then I added feta cheese, kalamata olives, olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, pepper, chili flakes and oregano (same dressing as last time).  This was a really nice…

Easy Peasy Greek Salad

August was a busy month for me – travelling and working – so I really haven’t been cooking too much 😦 I’ve been having quite simple meals (like this one). This salad was super simple and entirely from scratch. The salad ingredients are iceberg lettuce, cucumber, tomato, kalamata olives, avocado and feta cheese. The dressing…
