Simple Greek “Peasant” Cornbread (Bobota)

Posted by Hallee on Aug 26, 2013 in Breads, Christian Faith, Hallee's Galley, Mediterranean, Recipes

In Greek, the word bobota can mean anything from cornmeal to any bread or polenta-type dish made with cornmeal. In Greek history, during times of hardship, cornmeal recipes were very popular, and bobota is considered by many to be a “peasant” dish. This recipe gets a delightful shot of flavor from fresh orange juice and produces a dense, crumbly cornbread.

Jen’s Greek Crockpot Chicken

Posted by Hallee on Aug 26, 2011 in entrees, Hallee's Galley, Mediterranean, Recipes

Last week I made this great recipe. It’s one I’ve made before and my family enjoys it. I served it over rice pilaf but you could serve it over mashed potatoes or couscous.

Greek Stuffed Vegetables with Rice (Yemista me Ryzi)

This is an amazing recipe for making something new and different with all of that fresh produce coming out of the garden. You are getting such a wide variety of fresh vegetables, all kinds of good for your body vitamins and minerals, and is something different from the standard sauteing that I tend to do as a default.

Greek Stuffed Zucchini Blossoms with Rice (Kolokythanthoi Yemistoi me Ryzi)

Squash blossoms make a delightful appetizer, and they are often stuffed with mixtures similar to fillings used in stuffed leaves and vegetables. This vegetarian version calls for a mixture of rice, tomatoes, and herbs, and is served at room temperature.

Slightly Spicy Couscous Stuffed Tomatoes

This dish is wonderful served as a vegetable side dish or as a light lunch entrée. Brushing the inside of the tomato shell with Tabasco adds a robust hint of the Southwest.

Rosemary & Garlic Grilled Birmingham Lamb Loin Chops

Posted by Hallee on Aug 5, 2010 in entrees, Hallee's Galley, Mediterranean, Recipes

I made this lamb in a hotel room in Birmingham, Alabama. The lamb was purchased at Fresh Market and was from a local farmer. It was AMAZING. As I type this it’s 8:00 in the morning and I’m wishing I had another plate of it.

Hummus with Sesame Paste (Hummus bi Tahini)

We keep hummus in our refrigerator all the time. It is a delicious, healthy snack full of protein and just yummy goodness. I dip veggies into it, Homemade Whole Wheat Pita Bread, tortilla chips, bagel chips — whatever we have on hand. I often set it out as a starter for guests to snack on while I finish up dinner. This is a completely vegetarian dish and perfect for a Daniel Fast or Lent.

Stuffed Grape Leaves with Rice & Grated Vegetables (Dolmathakia Yialantzi)

In a Mexican restaurant, my husband, Gregg, will determine whether he’ll be back or not based on the taste and quality of their tamales. I do the same thing with Greek and Mediterranean restaurants and grape leaves. Grape leaves are an absolute favorite dish of mine. You can easily refrigerate any extra stuffing and use it as a side dish for another meal. The lack of meat, dairy, and eggs makes this the perfect dish for Lent or Daniel Fast. And, notice how I’ve given you yet another wonderful dish with which to use up those zucchini come August?
