Oven Baked Giant Beans

Oven Baked Giant Beans

A very traditional Greek dish called “Gigandes Plaki”, based on an old family recipe. Hearty, wholesome, wonderful hot or cold and utterly healthful. I use only a couple of sprays of olive oil, as opposed to a whole cup added by most Greeks! This large amount of oil is never healthy and honestly, not at all necessary for flavour or texture, as you will see, if you follow my recipe. Another subtle but substantial difference, is the use of fresh tomatoes, which, I think, are always a far superior choice. Please visit my blog for the full recipe.

Mango Porridge With Goji Berries, Pecans & Black Sesame Seeds

One of the things I love about porridge, is how versatile it can be. To me, it is a blank canvas, which inspires me to think about what colours and flavours I can splash onto it each time I create it. There is nothing like a warm bowl of porridge in the morning, however, we…

Spinach Rice With Lemon, White Wine & Toasted Almond Slivers

This is my take to “spanakoriso”, which is a classic Greek spinach rice dish. Some people prefer it with more spinach, others with more rice, I like to make it with, give or take, equal quantities. The wine lends it a tangy twist, which enhances the lemon, while the crunch of the toasted almond slivers…
