Feta Eggplant Roll-ups

Feta Eggplant Roll-ups

These feta eggplant roll-ups are a Greek version of the classic Italian dish aubergine parmigiana - but using feta instead of parmesan and mozzarella! It’s one of those Greek meze dishes we almost always order in tavernas to make sure there are a few vegetarian options for me (yes, I’m the only vegetarian in the family!). The eggplant is first roasted until soft, then rolled around a filling of feta, tomatoes and herbs. These little rolls are baked until the feta is melted and bubbly, and they make the perfect appetiser or light main course. This is a brilliant vegetarian dish with which to celebrate the simple pleasures of Mediterranean produce in the summer. Those fresh, ripe tomatoes and glossy, curvy aubergines, almost bursting from their skins. The slow-cooked pleasure of tomatoes with olive oil, onions and garlic. This is the best of Mediterranean simplicity. There are only a handful of ingredients, but this truly is such a satisfying, hearty, smile-inducing dish. I’m always on the lookout for new recipes to try out, and when I came across this one for eggplant roll-ups, I knew I had to give it a go. This side dish quickly became one of the standard things we order when visiting a greek taverna. The fact that it’s so easy to make at home, gives it a few extra points and also added eggplant to my weekly supermarket list. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Healthy Grilled Panzanella Salad (gluten-free friendly!)

Healthy Grilled Panzanella Salad (gluten-free friendly!)

This grilled panzanella salad incorporates a bounty of summer vegetables into one of the BEST SALADS EVER. With creamy mozzarella, grilled bread and a garlicky red wine vinaigrette, it’s a healthy meal or side dish that’s packed with flavor and texture. Feel free to use other vegetables according to what you have or like (such as eggplant, mushrooms, corn or asparagus). Also, you can swap out the mozzarella for other sources of protein, such as grilled chicken, canned white beans, feta cheese or good quality jarred tuna. I often add grated parmesan as well (simply because I love it). The anchovy in the dressing adds depth and complexity to the vinaigrette, but you won’t taste it. However, you can omit it for a vegetarian version.

Panzanella Salad

Panzanella Salad

Panzanella is a dinner-sized salad – practically a meal in itself, with crusty bread, cheese, veggies, and olives, it makes a delightful dinner on a hot summer night!This Mediterranean salad usually consists of crusty Tuscan bread and tomatoes in addition to fresh garden vegetables. Veggies can include bell peppers of any color, cucumbers, and onions. Garlic, capers, black olives, and anchovies are added to the salad for extra punch. Use good quality olive oil and white or red wine vinegar. Panzanella originated in Italy was a good way for Italian cooks to make a meal out of stale bread and homegrown vegetables. This Mediterranean salad is another example of the green, white, and red colors of the Italian flag, which are frequently represented in Italian cuisine. The written records of Panzanella go back centuries. In the 1500s, a poem by the famous artist Bronzino described the salad. At that time, the tomato was quite a few years from being introduced into the Italian kitchen, so the ingredients were limited to cucumber, onion, basil, arugula, and bread. Just like yesteryear, practically every modern family has some amount of stale bread lying around the house, but we like to use fresh Ciabatta, slightly toasted to give the salad the freshest taste possible. We also have added feta cheese – a flavor that maintains the Mediterranean flair but adds a little more substance to the meal.
