Lentils soup is an easy dish to prepare. So, here is the recipe according to my Greek personal cooking style:

Greek lentils soup

Greek Lentils Soup With Feta Cheese

Ingredients (for 4-6 portions):

    • 250gr lentils
    • 1 onion
    • salt and pepper
    • 2-3 carrots
    • 2-3 leaves of laurel
    • 1-2 cloves of garlic
    • 4-5 spoons of olive oil
Lentils soup preparation
  1. Wash the lentils in a strainer.
  2. In a sauce pan you put all the ingredients together and cover them with water. Boil them in a fairly slow temperature for about three quarters. The soup is ready after dropping the olive oil. You can accompany your meal with white cheese (“feta” cheese) with olives or with sardines (tin), even with an omelette.
The lentils soup could be served “cold” in summer and “hot” in winter. It is delicious and nutritious enough!!

Dolmades (in particular stuffed cabbage leaves),  belongs to the family of vegetable dishes.

2. We now prepare the filling. In a bowl we put the mince, the finely chopped onion, the rice (washed), the egg, the parsley, some salt and pepper and mix all the ingredients together.


3. After that we start cutting the leaves of the cabbage. In every leaf we put a teaspoon full of the mince mixture and roll it and fold the edges putting the “dolmades” side by side in the bottom of the saucepan. When the bottom is filled, we put the rest of the stuffed cabbage leaves on them, making a second series and so on.


4. As soon as the leaves finish, we cover the food with a plate inside – out, drop the olive oil, the tomato juice and some water; just all this to cover the food and put it on the electric cooker. The temperature must be slow for an hour.
