An omelette is an excellent snack that will give you the right boost of energy to start the day. In Greece, versions of this dish are quite popular with the addition of various types of vegetables, such as zucchini, spinach or tomatoes. Below, however, we would like to present to you a slightly original recipe referring to the Greek omelettes, in which the main additions are asparagus, spring onion and feta. These ingredients form a very tasty combination that should appeal to all lovers of green asparagus and omelettes.
1. Peel the bottom of the asparagus from the hard skin and then cut the woody ends.
2. Pour the eggs into a small bowl, add salt and pepper, and then gently whisk them with a fork.
3. Chop the asparagus cut into 2 or 3 pieces in olive oil using a medium-sized pan. Remember that if in the last stage you want to bake this omelette, the dish must have a metal handle or one that is made of high temperature resistant material.
4. At the moment when the asparagus peels will take on an intense golden color, put the onions diced into pans on the pans. We cook it until it is glazed.
5. Pour the eggs into the pan while trying to cover its entire surface. Optionally, sprinkle the whole with finely chopped chives.
6. When the bottom of the omelette is cut, remove the pans from the burner, and put the pieces of feta on top.
7. Then, for a few minutes, put the pan in the oven preheated to 160'C. Omelet the omelette until it is fluffy, and its surface will be browned.
8. If you do not use the oven after pouring eggs, immediately scatter feta pieces on them and cover the pan with a lid. We cook it until the top part of the eggs is cut.
Although the recipe for kolokithokeftedes has been on our site for a long time, we decided to publish the second version of the recipe. Kolokithokeftedes in this way we ate recently with our Cretan friends. Pancakes prepared in this way have tasted us so much that we asked for a way of preparing :)
When you ask a local resident in Greece what a delicious dish you can do with green peas, the answer probably will be: Αράκας Λαδερος! This dish from the first moment has also become one of our favorites. At the outset, it is worth noting that to prepare it you do not need many products and time-consuming preparations. In addition to fresh or frozen peas, only onions, carrots, potatoes, good home-made tomato puree (or fresh tomatoes) and dill will be necessary.
The popular vegetable in Crete is okra, which can often be found in local greengrocers. This very healthy and low-calorie vegetable is unfortunately virtually unheard of in Poland. If you would like to try it, it's worth doing it while in Crete. Just look for one of the local taverns, which serves dishes prepared on the basis of okra. Of course, you can also prepare it yourself, for example based on the following recipe.
