Meat balls in white sauce (yiouvarlakia)

from RereRini on 04/12/2019 07:41 AM

Meatballs:

Ingredients

500 grams minced beef,
1 cup of uncooked rice,
1/4 cup of finelly chopped parsley,
1 big finelly chopped onion,
1 egg,
1 cup of grated cheese,
2 tbsps olive oil,
2 big yellow lemons,
2 carrots in cubes,
2 potatoes cut in cubes,
2 zucchini cut in cubes,
Salt and pepper for taste

 

Preparation:

To prepare these Greek meatballs, we start by making the meatballs (yiouvarlakia). We place all the minced meat, the rice, the eggs, the parsley, the onion, the grated cheese, the olive oil, the salt and the pepper in a basin and we knead the mixture well to make it smooth. We leave the mixture to rest in the fridge for 15 minutes. We form the meatballs and set them aside.

Then, in a cooking pot, we add 3 cups of water and let it boil. When water has boiled we lower the heat and we put the meatballs inside one by one, adding the cubed carrots, the cubed potatoes and the cubed zucchini, avoiding to stir. We cook for about 20-30 minute. (the water must cover the meatballs so they are cooked properly). When almost done, we add the squeezed lemon juice, turn off the heat and let it simmer.

Melon salad

from RereRini on 04/12/2019 07:27 AM

Ingredients:
1 melon,
150 gr. feta cheese,
2-3 mint leaves.

 

Preparation:
We put the melon in the fridge to have it chilled. We cut in the middle,, we clean the seeds that are there and with a spoon or the tool for the round potatoes we make cubes or bites. We cut the feta cheese in equally big cubes and we add in the melon. We toss and serve. cool. We can garnish with mint leaves, if we want, but, personally, I never do.

This is one of my most favorite summer salads.

Scrambled eggs with tomatoes (Kayianas or Strapatsada)

from RereRini on 04/12/2019 07:21 AM

Ingredients:
2 onions: finely chopped
1/2 cup olive oil
600 gr. ripe tomatoes
8 eggs
150 gr feta cheese, crumbled
1 green pepper cut into thin slices
salt
pepper
1/4 teaspoon sugar


Preparation:
We heat the oil in a deep frying pan and sauté the onions for 6-7 minutes until wilted. Then, we peel the tomatoes, remove the seeds and the excess juices, chop and put in the pan, together with salt and pepper and a bit of sugar. We cook over a low heat for 20-25 minutes until the juices have completely evaporated and then add the eggs that we have previously whisked. We add salt and pepper. We continue to cook, stirring all the while for 4-5 minutes until the eggs are cooked. We add the crumbled feta cheese and the slices of green pepper. We can serve it on toasted bread or rusks.

Tips
Kayianas is also called strapatsada... No matter how you we call it though, it is still one of the easiest and humble gourmet dishes with eggs, fresh tomato and feta cheese.

Santorini tomato fritters (Tomatokeftedes)

from RereRini on 04/12/2019 12:22 AM

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cup of tomatoes (3-4 tomatoes), finely chopped
100gr feta cheese, smashed
1/2 of a cup red onion (1 large onion), grated
1 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
1 tbsps fresh spearmint, finely chopped
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
salt and freshly ground paper
oil for frying

 

Preparation:
We cut the tomatoes into 4 pieces and with a spoon we remove the flesh. We chop the flesh of the tomatoes into small cubes and place in a colander with some salt. We leave them for 30 minutes. Into a bowl, we combine the chopped tomatoes, the onions and mix with a spoon; we add the herbs and the feta cheese smashed with a fork. In a separate bowl, we mix the flour with the baking powder. We add the four mixture to the tomato mixture, whilst stirring with a spoon, until the ingredients are combined and the mixture is firm enough to make the balls. We add a little more flour, if needed. We put in the fridge for 30 minutes. In a pan we add enough oil to cover the bottom and we heat the oil into medium-high heat. We dip a tablespoon in some water and we spoon out some of the mixture into the hot oil. We repeat this procedure until the surface of the pan is comfortably filled. We should dip the spoon in the water every time so that the dough doesn't stick on it. We fry the tomatokeftedes for about 2-3 minutes on each side until nicely colored. We place them on paper towel to absorb the extra olive oil. Enjoy with some crusted bread, yogurt and a sip of ouzo!
