The last couple of nights I’ve been cooking some Greek inspired food. Mostly because this time last year we were there on holiday, so I’m reminiscing and trying to bring a bit of Greek sunshine into our home!
One of my favourite things to cook and eat at the moment is roasted veg. I love how easy and tasty it is. I chop up whatever I have that goes together and roast it off in the oven with some garlic, herbs and oil. Yum! So I did this the other night and served it with homemade hummus, salad and warm wholemeal pita (which I lazily bought from the shop, couldn’t be bothered to make it!). I guess it was a sort of a veggie kebab, also great for vegans. I will one day actually start to write measurements of things for recipes, but it was just a quick and easy throw everything in sort of meal!
Last night was another Greek inspired dish as I had an aubergine to use up. I should add I am only a very recent convert to aubergine and I still don’t think I’m fully in love with it, I think because I’ve had it cooked badly so many times before it really put me off. I hate the spongy texture it has sometimes. Anyway, to get round the evil texture, I made moussaka. I love aubergine done like this! I sliced the aubergines into thin ish slices and fried them off before layering with a lentil and tomato sauce I’d made and topping off with a homemade white sauce with a little cheese and nutmeg in. I think moussaka is meant to have potato in, but I think it’s filling enough without, especially when you have some salad and pita with it!
Anyway, hopefully this will inspire you to make some Greek inspired food.
