Brown Lentils with Smoked Eggplant and Pasta is inspired from my Cypriot dish called Fakhes Moudjentra. It is a light dish with a lot of flavour from the smoked eggplant as well as sweetness from the carrots and onion. The pasta is cooked in the leftover fluid, which absorbs all the flavour and adds body to the dish, making it a healthy and filling dish.
Aladoti Eliopita (pr. Ah-LAH-doh-tee Eh-LIOH-pee-tah), is an olive bread made without any oil or any other fat whatsoever.

Pomegranate liqueur like all other liqueurs is easy to make but you have to be patient and wait for the fruit to macerate in the alcohol for about a month, then prepare a simple sugar syrup and combine them. After that, you can drink it right away but as it matures it gets even better.
