Eggplants are a very versatile vegetable. You can use eggplants to make anything from spreads and dips to salad, sides, and main dishes. They can be grilled, fried, baked, or sautéed. I had an eggplant and some ricotta sitting in the fridge and a friend on the way, so I decided to make this quick, 30 minute, appetizer. To be honest with you, I didn't know what I was doing when I started putting this dish together. I decided to thinly slice the eggplant and roast it in the oven. Then I went back

Tzatziki is probably one of those Greek recipes that needs no introduction! This famous dip is a creamy and refreshing mixture of thick Greek yoghurt, cucumber, garlic and olive oil. It’s enough to transport anybody back to a Greek taverna, eating some souvlaki in the sun! Even if you’ve never visited Greece, you’ve likely enjoyed tzatziki as a dip for pita bread or carrot sticks, at a sunny barbecue with friends. Now that the sun is smiling down on us and our BBQ is permanently uncovered, this is a regular side dish to any and all of our BBQ recipes, and to dip flatbreads or pitas into when our mouths are watering and we just can’t wait for everything to be cooked!

Greece is known for its tasty vegetables and beetroots are no exception. Despite the funny colour, your tongue might get, I love having them in any way possible! My daughters also enjoy eating these healthy roots with me which just makes it all worthwhile. A simple method of preparing beetroots is to boil them until soft, then peel and cut them into large chunks. Drizzle them with high-quality Greek olive oil and you’ve got a great side for almost any meal! This is a great way to enjoy the natural sweetness of beets without sacrificing any flavour. However, when we combine the words beetroot and salad in my family, we’re talking about something quite distinct. A lot more delicious and capable of going with anything on the plate! In Greek, it’s called “Patzarosalata”. It’s a pretty common appetiser that you’ll find in most Greek restaurants and while the Greeks consider this dish to be salad rather than dip or spread; I would happily have it with crackers or a thick slice of sourdough! This simple beetroot salad is made with finely grated beets mixed with olive oil, vinegar, mayonnaise and garlic. In my version, I substitute some of the mayonnaise with Greek yoghurt because I like its tanginess and to make it a little bit healthier. Sprinkle crumbled feta cheese and a handful of crushed walnuts on top of the dish to add more saltiness and flavour. The feta and walnuts, while not part of the original recipe, add an interesting twist to this vegetable combination. This Patzarosalata recipe is incredibly easy to make, and it’s guaranteed to impress everyone with its vibrant colours and beautiful presentation!
The natural sweetness and slight smokiness of roasted eggplant are intensified by adding just a few ingredients: cayenne, smoked paprika, oregano, extra virgin olive oil, and garlic.

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!
