The Ultimate Healthy Greek Cookbook: 75 Authentic Recipes for a Mediterranean Diet

The Ultimate Healthy Greek Cookbook: 75 Authentic Recipes for a Mediterranean Diet Lowest new price: $15.99
List price: $15.99
Author: Yiota Giannakopoulou

Modernized Recipes Passed Down Through Generations!

With an emphasis on the use of fresh ingredients, limited use of processed raw ingredients, and a generous dose of olive oil in almost every dish, this is a cookbook that moves focus away from weight-management enthusiasts, toward the more health-conscious foodie.

In The Ultimate Healthy Greek Cookbook, you will find recipes for colorful, vibrant salads, delicious specialty breads, an array of dips for every occasion, and an abundance of desserts influenced by Greece’s geographical position as a checkpoint between the East and the West. Fragrant syrups, eastern spices, and heartwarming custards adorn the pages of this contemporary, yet traditional cookbook. Recipes include:

  • Vine leaf and rice rolls
  • Shrimp in tomato and ouzo sauce
  • Lemon chicken with rice
  • Spinach and feta cheese pie
  • Yellow split pea dip
  • Black olive bread
  • Granddad Georgio's garlic potatoes
  • And many more!

    For generations the Greek diet was almost exclusively vegan, which is something that resulted from the country’s close relationship with religion and, consequently, Lent. This book is designed with the traditional Greek diet in mind, using a minimal amount of meat. Eat your way to a healthy olive-oiled heart, and live as long as George, Yiota’s 99-year-old granddad!


  • The Greek Vegetarian: More Than 100 Recipes Inspired by the Traditional Dishes and Flavors of Greece

    The Greek Vegetarian: More Than 100 Recipes Inspired by the Traditional Dishes and Flavors of Greece Lowest new price: $10.00
    Lowest used price: $7.45
    List price: $25.99
    Author: Diane Kochilas
    Brand: St Martin s Press

    Greek cooking offers a dazzling array of greens, beans, and other vegetables-a vibrant, flavorful table that celebrates the seasons and regional specialties like none other.

    In this authoritative, exuberant cookbook, renowned culinary expert Diane Kochilas shares recipes for cold and warm mezes, salads, pasta and grains, stews and one-pot dishes, baked vegetable and bean specialties, stuffed vegetables, soup, savory pies and basic breads, and dishes that feature eggs and greek yogurt. Heart-Healthy classic dishes, regional favorites, and inspired innovations, The Greek Vegetarian pays tribute to one of the world's most venerable and healthful cuisines that play a major component in the popular Mediterranean Diet.

    In Ithaca, the villagers so revere the olive that they give names to the olive trees that bear them. We're not talking upstate New York here, but Greece, the land that gave us rosy-fingered dawns and spanakopita. Diane Kochilas gives us the Greek way with vegetables in The Greek Vegetarian, and she should be given some kind of humanitarian award for the effort. For anyone fussing over increasing greens, vegetables, and grains while reducing the place of meat in the usual American diet, The Greek Vegetarian is a place of comfort and repose, a place to settle back in the sun and flip through the pages and let the deliciousness of all these wonderful food ideas lap over your life like warm waves from the Aegean Sea.

    There are 100 recipes herein, and they come from the traditions of Greek cuisine. No one is stretching just to make a dish vegetarian (oh, OK: there's one recipe for vegetarian souvlaki). Only recently have Greeks gained the dubious title of biggest meat eaters in Europe, and even then all they did, according to the author, was make their plates bigger for the added meat. They still eat a diet rich in vegetables. Always have; always will.

    But some specifics. Kochilas divides her book into Meze, the little dishes of Greece, and Main Meals, the pastas, soups, stews, casseroles, savory pies and breads, the egg dishes. There's Beet and Apple Salad with a Yogurt Dressing, for starters. How about Roasted Eggplant and Chickpea Salad? Or Arugula Salad with Wrinkled Olives and Orange Slices? The Classic Greek Bean Soup is included. So too is a dish of Potatoes Stewed with Kalamata Olives. The possibilities build, one upon the other. This book bursts with flavor the same way a vine-ripened, sun-warmed tomato bursts at the first bite. It will dribble down your chin if you're not careful. --Schuyler Ingle

    Author: Debbie Matenopoulos

    Debbie Matenopoulos, the first member of her family born in America, grew up in a traditional Greek household, eating delicious, authentic Greek cooking that her family had passed down for generations.

    By the time Debbie had started her television career in New York on The View, she began eating a standard American diet. But despite carefully limiting how much she ate, she found herself gaining weight and lacking energy. As Debbie’s career as an entertainment news reporter and television host on BS, MTV, E!, and other networks had her constantly on the go, she was grabbing whatever food was readily available. It was only when she returned to her traditional Greek diet that she found herself easily—and healthily—realizing her natural weight and regaining her natural energy, stamina, and physique.

    Now, in It's All Greek to Me, Debbie shares 120 of her family's traditional Greek recipes and adds her own touch to make them even healthier and easier to prepare—plus, this new edition features 15 brand new recipes!  

    After tasting Debbie’s dishes, such as her mouthwatering version of Spanakopita (Spinach Feta Pie), Kalamaria Kaftera (Spicy Calamari), her family’s secret recipe for Baklava, and, of course, Arni kai Patates (Classic Roasted Leg of Lamb with Potatoes)—you’ll be amazed these delicious foods are good for you. With a foreword by Dr. Michael Ozner, one of the nation’s leading cardiologists, the recipes in It’s All Greek to Me adhere to the healthiest diet on the planet: the traditional Mediterranean Diet. Modern science is catching up to what Greeks have known for millennia: health comes from eating natural, whole-food ingredients that haven’t been processed or pumped full of hormones, antibiotics, or preservatives.

    Let It’s All Greek to Me bring your friends and family together to share in the experience of a Greek meal and way of life. Opa!
