During a trip to the Turkish coast, my friends and I gobbled down vegetarian bulgur "meatballs," called yalanci cig kofte. "Yalanci" means liar because the bulgur and potatoes are used instead of raw meat, as in the original recipe.

Deep fried falafel not in your diet? Try it baked! Baked falafel is still crunchy on the outside and delicious on the inside!

Gone Vegan or vegetarian? Miss gyros? Yeah, me too. So, here we have the taste, the texture, the excitement of a really GREEK-tasting sammidge, with absolutely NONE of the animal products. NONE. Dig THAT!.

Caponata is a Mediterranean vegetable stew. Eat it as is, or atop toasted whole-wheat bread or pasta.

I serve this with my Greek chicken recipe. My children fight over these potatoes, hence the large quantity.

In Greece, they're called "Gigantes" because of the large size of the beans. As with most Greek cooking, making Gigantes is time consuming and loaded with olive oil. This is a quicker, healthier substitute with much of the flavor preserved.

Vegan Mousakka
Incredible! 5.0/5
(5 ratings)

Delicious low fat vegan version of this ever popular Greek dish. Delicious served with a crisp green salad and a few black Olives! The tomato sauce makes enough for two dishes, I usually freeze the other half. The Nutritional information is calculated for the whole amount of tomato sauce - not sure what it would be using the amount for this recipe - but it's less.

Use all chickpeas if you don't have fava beans. If you use canned beans, the sodium levels will be higher so omit the salt.

Without gluten, yeast, eggs, dairy, soy or corn, are good, "pockety" pitas even possible?? I've modified a recipe by Nicole at Gluten-Free on a Shoestring and these are fantastic!
