Homemade fast food can be nutritious, delicious and easy to prepare. That is, when made with whole food ingredients using good oil and no preservatives.
Being raised in a Greek home surrounded by delicious Greek bakes, I'm always on the hunt for different ideas for putting my twist on these classic old favourites.
I have chosen five of my favourite Greek bakes to put a twist on each of them.
Favourite Greek Bake No. 1 – Bougatsa
I’m back on the wagon...the vegetarian wagon that is! I got a little lazy, busy and my head was so full of what I had to get done that I didn’t have time to consider what I was filling my fridge or pantry with and too often I would just grab what I had and cook. It was healthy but not always meat free.
Quite possibly many people have grown up with meat being the foundation of their meals and just a little bit of greenery on the side.
For some it may have been bangers with mash and maybe a serve of beans or peas; for others it could have been roast lamb, lots of potatoes and a little broccoli. And as I write this, I can hear my son in laws cheering for the concept of consuming lots of meat morning, noon and night!
Well, we are coming up to that week where lovers all over the world go crazy sending flowers to their loved ones!
But in this household, we celebrate with food!! I am crazy about my hubby and equally crazy for pasta – seriously, give me pasta morning, noon and night and I am your gal!
