Greek Cypriot Savoury Olive Cake/Bread “Eliopita”

Being a Greek Cypriot in the main, I love Cypriot food.  This savoury cake is a treasure, because it can be eaten as a snack, or it can be served with a stew or soup.  Either way, you’er going to love it.  It’s also great for a picnic.  This savoury delight tastes much better the next day, once it is 100% cooled down and rested.  I like to make this the night before I intend […]

Hot Sexy Roast Potato Wedges

I am obsessed with potatoes, I have sometimes made this with a mixture of sweet potatoes as well as ordinary ones, so mix and match as you please. They are more-ish, I warn you, and are a meal in themselves, especially when served with your favourite green herb salad with a little onion. Also ideal for b’que accompaniment ! Use your imagination, as these potatoes marry well with vegan sausages as well as vegan burgers, […]

Vegan Blue Cheese

This is my attempt to create proper Vegan Blue Cheese – this one is over 6 weeks old. A typical dairy blue cheese is inoculated with mold spores of PENICILLIUM ROQUEFORTI. I have carefully studied the procedure, and although it needs perfecting, it’s pretty awesome (a little tweaking left for complete perfection !) The recipe will be released in due course.

Middle Eastern Tahini Salad

This wonderful salad goes well with just about every Middle Eastern dish. It’s rich in flavour, very appetizing, and is one of my favorites of its kind.  To spice it up, you can also add chopped hot pepper.  You can serve this along side any veggie burger, with falafel, accompanied by hot pita bread.  It’s a great one to serve up for guests, and also fantastic as an accompaniment to vegan BBQs. INGREDIENTS 2 tomatoes, […]

My Labneh Cheese

Strained yogurt (a.k.a., yogurt cheese, labneh (Arabic: لبنة‎ labnah),Turkish yogurt or Greek yogurt) is yogurt which has been strained (in a cloth or paper bag, or filter) to remove its whey, resulting in a relatively thick consistency (between that of conventional yogurt and cheese) — all while preserving yogurt’s distinctive, sour taste. Yogurt strained through muslin is a traditional food in the Levant, Eastern Mediterranean, Near East, and South Asia, where it is often used […]

Beaming Sunshine Energy Salad
