These dolmades have much more meat than rice in them which is how my dad always liked them. This is the first thing I remember cooking with my mom when I was little. She would let me "help" roll the dolmades.
I love any dish with feta and olives. Read the ingredients, makes your mouth water! We love it! Not for the "seasoning challenged" palette.
Please note: this is an adopted recipe and having now made it, I can say that the family are very pleased that it's come here to stay, I used a small stick blender to blitz black olives with a tiny bit of olive oil instead of shop bought tapenade and omitted the capers (only becuase I hate capers, but DH loves them so will put them on his portion in future), and if you like olives and feta like we do then you'll enjoy this recipe. ZWT REGION: Greece.
Tender marinated chicken and a creamy cucumber yogurt sauce tucked into a pita, topped with lettuce and tomato if you like. Sounds like a great lunch to me! Cooked in or outside! Note: time to make does NOT include 1 hour marinating time. from TOH... ZWT Greek and US Regional - East Coast
Delicious marinade that would be great on chicken as well as fish. Full of fresh herb and citrus flavours. I usually use Flake fillets bbqed for a minute and a half a side - superb. (Cook time is marinade time)
Who does not like Scampi. You have had Scampi the usual method, with loads of garlic and extra virgin olive oil... Now have Scampi my Med-way, and you won't go back.... Have plenty of baguette to soak up all the sauce... So good, you will be sorry when it is all gone. Winning Recipe Entry, RSC#7.
Love to entertain and recently was given Martha Stewart’s Hor D’Oeuvres Handbook. Most people eat first with their eyes and Martha's fantabulous dishes offer a visual feast. This original recipe was modeled on her approach to food both in look and flavor. You can simplify the making of these Greek inspired treats by simply quartering the pita bread or using the small ones. Either way, its a treat.
If you are like me, sometimes there is to much of a good thing and that leaves leftovers. I made CountryLady's Recipe #110939 and there was about 6 ounces left. What to with it? Stuffed Pita's of course. This is an quick fix for leftover Souvlaki. Of course you will also need leftover tzatziki! For a quick weeknight meal for two, serve with a large Greek salad.
This is a very simple stew, made either with beef or lamb, that is very good to eat. Traditionally, it is served atop a rice ring (buttered rice that you have molded in your bundt pan to give an attractive appearance) or homemade french-fried potatoes. It is sublime served with Hunkar Begendi (recipe #95402) - a Turkish Eggplant Cream.
Rustic, golden-brown bread slices - crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside. Drizzled with great olive oil, sea salt and Mediterranean oregano. That's really the recipe right there. You'll love this.
This is my absolute favorite fish recipe for its wonderful flavor and ease of preparation. I love Mediterranean food and the mild, tender Roughy is a fantastic compliment to the fresh and vibrant feta, caper and tomato topping. This is a great, healthy recipe that will have you feeling like you just ate in a fancy restaurant. I adapted this recipe from a recipe found at epicurious.com. As usual, substituting or eliminating any ingredients will greatly change the flavor as each ingredient compliments the other.
These potatoes are a staple in our home. Whether accompanying roast lamb or chicken, or just on their own, we have them a couple of times a week. They are delicious and the ones that get overly-brown in the pan and stick a bit are MINE! Clean up is a little tricky with this recipe, unless you line your pans with foil, but I find that just filling the pan up with hot, sudsy water and forgetting for an hour (something I apparently have no problem doing ;-)) helps a lot.
