Greek Lenten Tomato Fritters (Domatokeftethes)

Tomato fritters are a delightful appetizer or side dish, and a specialty of Santorini, a Greek island known for its tomatoes. The combination of herbs can be adjusted to include dill, parsley, basil, mint, or oregano, depending on taste preference. The recipe calls for self-rising flour. This meatless, eggless, dairyless dish is perfect for Lent or a Daniel Fast. The fresh vegetables in it also make a wonderful summer dish to prepare with the bounty out of a vegetable garden (and, come on – who isn’t desperately searching for zucchini recipes right around mid-August?)

Greek Lenten Fritters (Tiganites)

Similar to small pancakes, these light, crispy medallion-sized treats are a delight served with honey or petimezi… or with syrup, preserves, or a creative topping of your own design. They can be eaten as a sweet snack, with breakfast, or as a brunch dish. Favorites during The Great Lent, these contain no eggs or dairy products. If served with honey, they are perfect for a Daniel Fast as well.

Greek Meatless Stuffed Cabbage Rolls with Rice (Lahanodolmathes Orphana)

The word “orphana” means “orphaned” and in Greek cooking, usually means a dish that can be made with meat, but in this case is made without. Cabbage is a favorite winter food, and this meatless recipe is delightful and a Lenten favorite. These cabbage rolls are delicious as a main dish, but I often make them using small pieces of the cabbage leaf, to create small rolls that are perfect as a side dish, addition to a buffet table, or appetizer. Try them also using chard leaves and Romaine lettuce leaves. Because of the lack of meat, this dish is perfect for Lent or a Daniel Fast.

Mediterranean Grilled Chicken on the George Forman

Posted by Hallee on Jan 20, 2010 in American Quisine, entrees, Hallee's Galley, Mediterranean, Recipes

This recipe is fantastic for grilled chicken, whether it’s outside on a charcoal grill, inside on my cast iron grill pan, or on the George Forman. I served it with grape leaves, hummus, Greek salad, and an olive tray.

The pictures in this recipe were taken during a romantic weekend getaway shared by Gregg and me. We had a hotel suite with somewhat of a kitchen, and were able to enjoy all of our meals together, in the privacy of our room.
