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.

Pummelo Avocado Salsa

Posted by Hallee on Dec 7, 2010 in Hallee's Galley, Recipes, Salads, sauces & spreads, sides, Snacks, starters

I created this recipe after researching pummelos. I kept finding it paired with avocados in different things, so I put together a quick salsa. I was a bit worried about the cilantro, but the final product was very tasty.

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.

Savvy Savings Sunflower Seed Substitute Tahini Paste

Posted by Hallee on May 10, 2010 in Daniel Fast, diet & fasting, Hallee's Galley, Recipes, sides, starters

I was out of Tasty Traditional Tahini Paste and out of sesame seeds to whip up a quick batch. I began to explore a frugal substitute and ended up using roasted sunflower seeds. I made a perfect paste using organic roasted sunflower seeds that was both pure and delicious.

Easy Cheesy Chili Empanaditas

Posted by Hallee on May 5, 2010 in entrees, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare, Mexican, Recipes, Snacks, starters

This is an amazing dish. The pastry is so light and buttery that it nearly melts in your mouth. The cheese combined with the chilies is a remarkable flavor. They can be an appetizer for a Cinco de Mayo celebration, or a delicious and savory treat for lunch.

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?

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?)
