Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. Have never eaten Pastitsio (a traditional Greek dish) before and was grateful to have found one I could eat. This looks like a great one-dish meal, and takes less time to make than you might expect. It's described as a great party dish, and leftovers can be reheated and eaten a day or two later. From Vegetarian Times Cooks Mediterranean. Have not tried this recipe yet. Update: Tried this the other night. It makes a lot of food, but leftovers are quite good! Mine didn't turn out too dry with 1 cup of tomato sauce, but do add more tomato sauce or fresh tomatoes if you wish.
Found this in the paper today and wanted to post it for Zaar World Tour 2006. It sounded absolutely fantastic and I finally tried it myself. Was I right! Homemade tomato soup with 10x the taste! I served with crusty ciabatta bread for dipping. I added vegetable stock instead of regular water because a good stock is always the basis for the best soups. Lighten up on salt (if you use stock) and the cumin if you want. I only added 1 teaspoon cumin, 1 teaspoon salt, and no cayenne. I used 1 large bunch of cilantro. Did not taste overly of cilantro once I took the bunch out. Adapted from "Mediterranean Light" by Martha Rose Shulman. I classified this as either a Greek or Italian recipe:D
Posted this because of a to-die-for soup I recently made (see Sage's recipe #169328), converted into a stew. A classic Greek dish from a vegetarian "minute meals" cookbook. Delicious, easy and fast. Serve with a simple tomato and feta salad. Use a top-quality broth if you can. As written it turns out like a soupy-ish stew.
P.S. I like to cook the stew long enough so the eggs coagulate, so I would personally simmer for about 5 minutes after adding eggs.
