Fassolakia yahni is a traditional Greek vegan dish with green beans and potatoes in tomato sauce, which is easy, tasty, cheap and healthy.
Kolokassi (taro) is not popular in Greece but we love it in Cyprus. Today I am posting a recipe you have never saw on the internet and I am sure you all want to see something new for a change, as it is one of my original concoctions. I made it with avgolemono sauce.
Escalopes, from the French Escaloppes, (scallop) is a thin slice of boneless meat, from the leg of a veal, cut into thin slices and tenderized with a mallet.

Mpiftekia are the Greek burgers and although the word mpif (tekia) is derived from the word beef (steak), the French then called it bifteque and we translated it into mpifteki, now the Greek word generally means burgers. Mpiftekia may be made with beef, pork or chicken or even veggies.
Moschari Kokkinisto is a Greek stewed recipe with veal. We don’t prefer beef in Greece so most of the Greek dishes are made with veal. Kokkinisto in Greek means “reddened” which is the final outcome of a veal dished cooked in red wine and tomato.
Quince have a coarse texture, are too hard, astringent and sour to eat raw but when cooked it softens and changes colour from creamy white to pink-dark orange and near to red whilst it releases all its sweet aroma and delicate flavour.
Spartiatika Loukanika are the famous Spartan Sausages, which are flavoured with orange and spices.
I have tried nearly all type of Greek and Cypriot sausages and not that I don’t like them all but these ones with orange flavour are my favourite.
