A Taste of Greece

A Taste of Greece

By Taghreed’ Odeh, Food Expert


As a child, I remember my visits to Greece because my parents had Greek friends there. I loved those visits, including the delicious Mediterranean style cuisine. I’m delighted to share three of my favourite breakfast recipes with you, using ingredients available in your pantry. You can thank me after you try them!


A traditional breakfast recipe consists of beaten eggs mixed with diced ripe tomatoes and cooked with olive oil until it’s fluffy and is topped with feta cheese. Flavourful and yummy!

2 ripe red tomatoes, diced small
2 eggs
2 tbsp olive oil
½ cup crumbled feta cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Bunch of parsley, chopped

  1. In a nonstick skillet, heat olive oil and add the tomatoes, salt and pepper
  2. Stir the tomatoes until the water dries and it starts to caramelise
  3. Beat the eggs, season with salt and pepper, and pour over the tomatoes. Keep on medium heat, stirring tomatoes and eggs until thoroughly cooked
  4. Put in a serving plate and sprinkle with the feta cheese and parsley
  5. Serve with bread or Greek salad

Greek Avocado Toast

2 avocadoes, halved, pits removed and peeled
4 toast (sourdough or any kind), toasted until crunchy
½ cup crumbled feta cheese
1 lemon, squeezed
Salt and pepper to taste
2 cucumbers, diced
2 tomatoes, diced
½ cup black olives
1 tbsp dried dill

Olive oil to drizzle



  1. Place avocadoes in a bowl. Right away, add the squeezed lemon juice, season with salt and pepper and mash with a fork until smooth
  2. Spread the mashed avocadoes on toast evenly and top with diced tomatoes, cucumber, olives and feta cheese
  3. Season with the dill and more salt and pepper if needed
  4. Drizzle with oil and serve

Greek Yoghurt with Honey & Walnuts


8 or more fresh figs, cut in half lengthwise
2 cups Greek yoghurt
½ cup honey
½ cup walnuts, cut small
Fresh mint leaves for garnish

  1. For each serving, put half a cup of Greek yoghurt in a serving plate
  2. Place the figs elegantly on top. Sprinkle the walnuts, honey and garnish with mint
  3. You can bake the figs for more intense flavour by placing the cut figs on a baking tray, brushing each piece with honey and baking it for 10 minutes in a preheated oven at 180° Take out of the oven, let cool for seven minutes, then adding the yoghurt, honey, walnuts and mint
  4. Enjoy!


Tip: As an alternative to Greek yoghurt, simply add sugar or honey to your regular yoghurt
