There are plenty of vegetarian recipes in Greece, since the traditional cuisine include a lot of vegetarian and especially vegan dishes.
Greeks have traditionally kept a mainly plant based diet through the centuries 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) as in many other places in the world.
But many Greeks 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 vegetarian dishes
