Alonissos for me is the the perfect Greek island. There is no airport which keeps the island quieter than many and means you arrive by boat, greeted by beautiful landscape bursting out of the Aegean Sea. And one of my first meals when I went there was Spanakopita, a delicious spinach and feta savoury pie.
I’m back with another Greek recipe. And yes it’s yogurt once more.
Fresh cucumber and dip, make for a very cool summer dip.
We have our version of this in India, it’s called a “Raita”, will share this too sometime.
Melitzanosalata is an eggplant dip similar to baba ghanouj, but without the tahini. It's a very customizable dish! If you want something heartier, add some feta. If you want your eggplants to taste smokier, grill them or add a dash of paprika. It's great with olives, too!
This burst of yum illustrates one of my great loves. A simple appetizer or snack for some is a perfectly proper happy meal for me. The creamy avocado with a punch of heat, coupled with the satisfying saltiness of a perfectly toasted chip. *runs for kitchen* 😋
Qutab is one of the most loved dishes in Azerbaijan. There are wide variety of qutabs. You can make it with meat, squash, potatoes, etc. My favorite one is greens/herbs filled one. You can add as many herbs/greens as you wish to the filling. The vast variety of the herbs make qutab ever delicious. It's favorable dish to make on spring and summer seasons when there are abundance of greens. When I was a child I lived in a small village on the shore of the Caspian see. My family grew most of our produce in our yard. If you walked through the streets of the village during summer afternoons, you could smell delicious aroma of qutab in every neighborhood.
The smell of qutab, whenever I prepare it, always takes me back to my childhood. Hope you too will make and enjoy this recipe.
