3-Ingredient Mediterranean Dip

3-Ingredient Mediterranean Caviar | figsandfeta.comA few weeks ago my husband and I hosted a dinner-pool party for a handful of families. Preparing meze, pitas, souvlaki and sweets for days before, I was pleasantly surprised when one guest walked in with a very Mediterranean looking appetizer: what I’m calling the 3-Ingredient Mediterranean Dip. One taste and I was hooked.

Roasted Eggplant Greek Yogurt Dip

Melitzanosalata (Μελιτζανοσαλάτα, pronounced meh-leed-zah-no-sah-LAH-tah)

Roasted Eggplant Greek Yogurt Dip | figsandfeta.com

By far one of my favorite appetizers, this Roasted Eggplant Greek Yogurt Dip is a variation of the classic Greek Melitzanosalata. The addition of roasted garlic and a little Greek yogurt gives this dip a lot of depth. I could eat it straight from the bowl with a spoon! (Who am I kidding? I have done that!)

A Simple Farewell to the Last of Summer’s Flavors

Summer is officially over. I know, I’m not providing “Breaking News” here. You may have noticed, however, that there are still a few summer flavors lingering about in the grocery store and farmer’s market. I’m mainly referring to Zucchini and Tomatoes. They are naturally delicious when consumed fresh straight from the garden to the table, not requiring a lot of seasonings and fuss.

Happy Fava’s Day


Recently, I asked for my husband’s input regarding a “Greek-ified” Father’s Day recipe to write about. Father’s Day seems to be about BBQ and all the fixings. I knew I didn’t want to tamper with the BBQ tradition (mainly because backyard BBQ isn’t an option right now under my current living conditions!) but I was stumped as to what recipe I could contribute to the occasion.

Spicy Hummus Spread

Hummus-2Some years ago I went through a hummus phase. I was constantly craving hummus and with every batch prepared the outcome became more lemony or more garlicky. I not only enjoyed eating said hummus and impressing my family and friends with this homemade goodness, but I also enjoyed the fact that it was so easy to prepare. There is a certain satisfaction to preparing something delicious so quickly and with very little clean up.

Spicy Lentil Bean Hummus Dip


College basketball fans have March.  World-class amateur athletes have the Olympic games.  Children have summer.  There are particular times of the year that “belong”  to certain groups of people or are associated to certain things.  For some it is currently a time of fasting in preparation for Easter, therefore it is the season of the lentil bean.  The one time of year where this tiny, pebble-looking bean becomes fairly common in the homes of many.
