This recipe for balsamic glazed roasted vegetables couldn’t be easier. All you have to do is chop some of your favorite vegetables, roast them in the oven until well caramelized and then coat them with a honey (or maple syrup) and balsamic sauce and continue baking until the sauce becomes a dark and sticky glaze.
Nothing speaks family dinner better than Pastitsio! You may also know it as Greek pasta bake, and you know that this is the food to serve whenever you want your loved ones to sit around the table and offer them a hearty and cozy dinner, a dinner that will warm their hearts and fill their bellies.
These Italian almond cookies (a.k.a. soft amaretti or amaretti morbidi) appear in my kitchen very often because they’re quick and easy to make, they taste delicious (especially if you love the almond flavor) and they require 3 basic ingredients (egg whites, almond flour, sugar), plus some aromatics and a pinch of salt.
If you ask a Greek to name a Sunday dinner, then the most probable answer you’re going to get is “Youvetsi”. Youvetsi is a flavorful traditional Greek beef stew with orzo pasta and gets its name from the homonymous baking dish usually made of clay.
Sheet pan Greek baked chicken and potatoes is a staple dinner in many Greek households not only because it’s easy but also because it’s delicious and healthy at the same time.
This creamy and velvety creme brulee may seem laborious but it’s actually a fairly easy recipe. It also doesn’t have many ingredients and that’s why my most important advice is to get the best quality cream you can find and the best vanilla.
Making Aperol spritz at home is easier than you think. This easy, simple (only 3 ingredients), and refreshing cocktail is a delicious drink especially for when the weather starts to get hot. So it’s no surprise that its popularity grows every year, not only in Italy (from where it originated) but all over the world.
Couscous is tiny pasta made with semolina flour from durum wheat, mixed with water. Sometimes it’s easy to confuse it with bulgur which is a cereal food made from the cracked wheat (usually durum wheat) because they are very similar in appearance.
This recipe uses a pomegranate syrup glaze. Pomegranate syrup, also known as pomegranate molasses, is just pomegranate juice that has been boiled down and concentrated into a thick sauce. It’s sweet and tangy and can be used in meat dishes and in salads as part of the dressing. Instead of pomegranate syrup, you can use maple syrup, honey or grape syrup.
Are you having a few friends over and want to make something quick, easy but also impressive at the same time? Or are you planning a lazy Mediterranean evening with your other half and searching for meze ideas for a quick snack to munch on over a glass of wine? Well, this Greek meze platter is the way to go!
One more thing before you go!
