Lagana with Garlicky Olives, Sun-dried Tomatoes and Rosemary is not your classic Greek flatbread traditionally baked for Clean Monday, but a twist you can make year around.

Greek Orthodox Easter is just around the corner. For those who want to fast during the last weeks, I have compiled a list with over 100 Lenten Recipes (most of which are also vegan).
