Strapatsada

Strapatsada

Eggs are pretty synonymous with breakfast at our house. Boiled, poached, fried, scrambled - we love them all. But even more so, I love to serve up the Greek breakfast recipes I miss from home, and Strapatsada (or Kagianas) is certainly one of these. I remember this made with tomatoes picked fresh from a sunny garden, for a light and flavoursome summer breakfast served up under the hot Greek sun. In the UK we enjoy it all year round, but it really puts a smile on my face when skies are blue and the sun is out. Basically a Greek version of scrambled egg, with tomato, feta and oregano, this Strapatsada recipe could also work with a salad as a light lunch or dinner.

Mediterranean Style Shakshuka

Mediterranean Style Shakshuka

This Mediterranean-style Shakshuka was actually thought out by my husband! He is not often found cooking, but he hit on a real win with this simple Shakshuka recipe when I was too tired and busy to cook one day, back in Rhodes. We call it Greek Shakshuka; I don’t think that’s a real thing, but he took the shakshuka ingredients and added Greek staples so that’s what it became! What is Shakshuka? Shakshuka is a popular dish originating from North Africa, which has been popular with the Israeli community and Jewish diaspora, bringing it to brunch menus across the globe over the past decade or so. Broadly, Shakshuka consists of eggs poached in a tomato sauce, with vegetables, herbs and spices. We love our roster of Mediterranean egg recipes, so we had to somehow work this popular North African dish into the Mediterranean canon! To do this we keep it simple - tomatoes, feta and egg are the primary tastes here. This is perfect for a light lunch or supper with a side salad, this is, however, a go-to brunch dish, served with a side of toast. It’s a flexible recipe, too, so if you want to add a few herbs and spices, and even extra veg, be my guest. This is our recipe - feel free to tweak it until you have your own! We have this at least once a month for a comforting, sustaining and satisfying brunch.

Spicy Thai-Mex Slaw

Spicy Thai-Mex Slaw

This crunchy, salty, and spicy coleslaw is an excellent companion to Sonoran style dishes. Serve this spicy slaw alongside burros and enchiladas or layered in a sandwich like the Pork Torta from my Taste of Tucson cookbook. It's inspired by my very favorite Thai dish, Som Tum (green papaya salad). The Thai fish sauce gives this slaw a burst of umami flavor, but you could always just use a bit more salt if you want to keep it vegan.

Crustless Zucchini Pie

Crustless Zucchini Pie

This crustless zucchini pie is the perfect lunch for a sunny day in the garden. The recipe originally comes from a friend in Crete. It’s both easy, and a great way to use up the glut of courgettes we seem to enjoy every July and August! Accompanied by a side salad (and maybe a chilled glass of white wine!), this courgette tart is so savoury and satisfying. The feta, parmesan and eggs give it that cheesey, almost quiche-like consistency, whilst the grated courgette/zucchini and the fresh herbs give it a real green vibrancy and fresh taste. Since it’s without a crust, it’s a really healthy, light option too. I’ve even been known to wrap the whole thing in tin foil and take it to the park for a picnic - and you can be sure that none ever comes back!
