Greek Vegetarian Recipes

There are plenty of true Greek vegetarian recipes since the traditional cooking of Greece include a lot of vegetarian and especially vegan dishes.

Greeks have traditionally kept a mainly plant based diet with a little meat or fish at the most once or twice a week. This has unfortunately changed with younger generations (and so has the rate of health problems related to eating habits).

But many still observe the Orthodox lent, or fasting period before the Orthodox Easter, during which a mainly vegan diet is kept.

This is happy times for vegans and vegetarians like me, since there is a lot more choices of great dishes when you go out and eat!

Here are a few of my favorite Greek recipes as well as a few "Vegetarianized" recipes.
