Favorite Greek Recipes
Having done our Yoga Teacher Training in Greece 2 years in a row, we wanted to share our Favorite Greek Recipes.
You’ll honestly never be able to nail the Tzatziki quite like they do at Pelagos Hotel, simply because of the fresh yogurt on the Greek Islands, but this easy recipe is directly from the island of Santorini and will at least hold you over until you can get the real thing next Summer!
1 cup Greek Yogurt
3 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 Tbsp. Vinegar
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cucumber – peeled, seeded & diced
1 tsp. chopped fresh dill
Mix the olive oil, vinegar, garlic and salt in a bowl. Add this mixture to the yogurt and mix well. Lastly, add the cucumber and chopped fresh dill. Chill for 2 hours before serving or until you can’t wait any longer!
We have since learned that Fava is more popular in Greece than hummus, but hummus is just as delicious.
Here’s a quick & easy hummus full of Mediterranean flavor!
To roast the pepper heat the oven to 475, put the pepper in on a pan allowing it to blister; monitoring & turning it so all sides are dark and bubbly.
When done, place the pepper in a paper bag to cool.
Once cooled, remove the skin.
Place all ingredients in a food processor or Vitamix and blend until smooth and creamy, using the oil from sun-dried tomatoes and the liquid from chickpeas to create desired consistency.
Serve with crackers, pita chips or veggies!
