For the 'It's all Greek to Me' challenge.
My very first flight with my Dad was to Athens, I was 8 years old - and I remember climbing up the hill to the Acropolis, it was so far. I also remember I loved the food.
I had a teacher at the time who asked me to write and draw a story about this trip, which I did. I would love to see that booklet I made now, but I've never found it.
Submission for „It‘s all Greek to me“
I have never been in Greece, so I had no personal experience other than the food in Greek restaurants here, which I think is very much adapted to the people living here. So not necessarily authentic.
But I do possess an excellent culinary tome about Greek cooking. After scouring it I found this recipe which appealed very much to me. Now I want to travel to Greece real bad...
I made a vegetarian kebab recipe by combining my mother's lentil patties recipe with the Çökertme kebab, which belongs to the Bodrum region. I wanted to add Zeki Müren, who lost his life in Bodrum and known as the sun of art, to the illustration. At the same time, I added Halil, who is mentioned in the folk song called "Çökertme Türküsü", to the left of the illustration, above the classical Bodrum houses.
Growing up in the Netherlands we ate many traditional “mash-up” meals, but this recipe is one that ticks all the happy boxes for me! Translated to English it means “Farmer’s cabbage” or as one of my nieces says “Kale Mash”. A warm comfort on a chilly day while thinking about the beautiful Dutch countryside that I miss.
This is a recipe that requires a lot of chopping, but it all ends up in one pan, so it’s great for the mornings! Usually feeds 2-4 people, but you can expand this to feed more. This is also great for sleepover mornings with friends and kids!
Just like Bruce-Lee, the famous Martial arts expert & Actor, this Brocco-Lee is fierce & strong! Here's my recipe for Broccoli Tikkis / Patties that are easy to make and nutritious... These can be had as a tea time snack with mint chutney or added to veggie burgers. Enjoy!
