Greek Eats: Recipes
I’ve road-tested the following recipes and link to each one in the posts below. Happy cooking!
Φάβα (Fava): A dip made from green or yellow split peas. Great as a party appetizer, a snack, or a simple, healthy side dish.
I couldn't even get a picture of my first fava before my party guests launched into it! Can you tell why we're friends? Yyyyeah.
Ρεβυθοκεφτέδες (Revithokeftedes): Chickpea fritters. Crunchy. Minty. Loaded with chickpea goodness. Click above for a recipe from my favorite Greek food guru!
A cross-section of a chickpea fritter. All in the interest of science, of course; if I hadn't had just one last fritter, how would you have been able to see the inside? I know. You're welcome.
Αγκιναρόρυζο (Anginarorizo): Artichokes & rice, from the region known as Mani. In this hearty dish, artichokes and rice are slow-cooked together with dill, lemon and olive oil.
Artichokes & rice served in a taverna in Areopolis, Mani.
Σπανακόπιτακια (Spanakopitakia): Spinach Pie Phyllo Triangles. Spinach and feta, all wrapped up into little phyllo pastries!
Some of the finished spanakopitakia, but my friends ate them all before I could get a good picture! All that's left is the broken crispy bits section. I don't discriminate amongst spanakopitakia, but just know that the rest were much prettier.
More coming soon, now that I have access to a kitchen again! 🙂
