Aladoti Eliopita (pr. Ah-LAH-doh-tee Eh-LIOH-pee-tah), is an olive bread made without any oil or any other fat whatsover. This yummy eliopita uses tahini as its source for fat, which makes a delicious and healthy bread for breakfast, brunch or as a snack during the strict Orthodox fasting period, when there are days that no oil whatsover is consumed.
Eliopsomo (olive bread) is a perfect and healthy vegan bread for any time of the day.
Eliopsomo is based on a traditional Cypriot Olive Bread. I have made a few changes to the original recipe which is included in my Cookbook “Mint, Cinnamon & Blossom Water, Flavours of Cyprus, Kopiaste” as well as in Volume 2 of my e-book. I know that I said that I will be on hiatus for a short while…
Eliopita, Eliotes or Eliopitakia are Cypriot olive pastries made either as a bread, as a roulade, as turnovers or a pie, to accompany a cup of coffee or tea.
