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.

Scrumptious Sweet Potato Sticks

You can cut these steak fry size or quarter small sweet potatoes. Since my husband ensures that I have every kitchen gadget known to man, I have a commercial strength french fry cutter. Cutting sweet potatoes down to regular french fry size is very tasty. The large cut is perfect. When you get it just right, they are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. Yummy!

Purple Monster Fruit Smoothie

This is a great smoothie for breakfast – and sometimes dinner! You can substitute the orange juice with any mix of juices or even an even split of whole milk and plain yogurt if you are not on a fast. The milk/yogurt mixture adds more of a milk shake quality than the juice does.
