Turkish Bulgur Meatballs (Yalanci Cig Kofte)

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.

Greek-Style Butter Beans

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.Submitted by SROSPENDA

Vegan Mousakka

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.Submitted by TREEHUGGER73

Baked Falafel

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. Submitted by STEPFANIER
