You can make this sour cream if you don't have any health issues, but I like it made with plain low fat or fat-free yogurt. A very refreshing side dish for something like a stew.
Standing time is cooking time.
This stew is delicious served over mashed potatoes to sop up the gravy. If you don't have a slow cooker, you can cook it in a 325 degree F oven for 2-1/2 to 3 hours. Slow, gentle cooking is what makes this so good!
Last week I saw Gian Campanella prepare this dish on "Ciao Italia" and it looked so good, I printed off the recipe from their website as soon as the show was over. I took advantage of a special on rock hens at my grocer this week. This dish looks and smells as wonderful as it tastes - in fact, my finished dish looked just like Gian's!
This wonderful cobbler from Canadian Living magazine can be baked in a rectangular baking pan for family dinners or in individual ramekins for an elegant dinner party. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
This simple but delicious side dish can be made with almost any kind of green but my personal favourite is red-veined Swiss chard as the green and red make such a pretty presentation. From Williams-Sonoma Italian Favourites.
These moist, delicious muffins are made without eggs so are ideal for someone with an egg allergy or for someone like myself who has to watch their cholesterol intake. I made these with Jordan's Supreme Muesli, which is 50% fruit and nuts, but if this product is not available where you live, you can substitute any flaked cereal with good results.
This stew is Greek cooking at its finest. Tender veal and eggplant cooked in a flavourful tomato sauce, flavoured with a variety of spices, some of which I have never encountered in Greek cuisine. Enjoy!
