Greek Style Eggs

“Recognize meat for what it really is: the antibiotic- and pesticide-laden corpse of a tortured animal.” -Ingrid Newkirk

Ingredients

  • 2-3 eggs
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 3 baby portobello mushrooms
  • handful of spinach
  • 1 tablespoon diced onions
  • coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese
  • optional: hot sauce

First, sauté the spinach, onions, garlic, and mushrooms in coconut oil until the spinach is wilted.  Put the cooked veggies on the plates for serving.  Then, fry the eggs to your preference.  Serve the eggs on top of the vegetables, sprinkle some feta cheese, and I top it all off with hot sauce because I cannot eat eggs without some hot sauce!

Greek Pasta Salad

So the past month I have been on a greek salad kick.  I typically have random food items that I’ll crave and eat several times a week for about a month so this isn’t uncommon.  So when I stumbled upon a recipe for a greek pasta salad on pinterest I thought I’d give it a try.  I loosely followed the proportions (and didn’t document them) so that it would fit more to my tastes.  So the ingredients are:

  • whole wheat pasta (I used about a cup)
  • feta cheese
  • sliced/diced cucumber
  • cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • kalamata olives (I buy pre-sliced)
  • greek salad dressing
  • dash of oregano
  • dash of pepper

It is best to let it sit for several hours so the flavors can blend.  So it turned out pretty good I think, but I still prefer the salad over the pasta salad.  This would make a good dish to bring to a potluck since it different than traditional pasta salads.
