Method:

Saucy Tomato Mini Frikkadels

  • Heat olive oil in a frying pan over moderate heat.

  • Fry the garlic and frikkadels until golden.

  • Add whole tomatoes and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.

  • Add the torn basil leaves, lemon juice and zest and remove from the heat.

Dolmades

  • Remove the sausage meat from the casings and divide the meat from each sausage in half to make twelve mini meatballs.

  • Wrap each meatball tightly in a piece of spinach, tucking in the edges.

  • Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat.

  • Place the dolmades in the pan and cover with a lid or foil.

  • Fry for 4 minutes, turn, cover and cook for another 4 minutes.

  • Keep in the pan until serving.

Deep-Fried Mozzarella

  • Mix the flour and spices in a small bowl.

  • In a separate bowl, whisk the egg and milk together.

  • Coat the cheese slices in flour, then egg, then flour again.

  • Refrigerate on a tray for a couple of minutes.

  • Heat the oil in a pan over moderate heat and fry the coated cheese slices until golden on both sides.

  • Serve hot.

Marinated Aubergines

  • Heat a griddle pan over high heat.

  • Slice the aubergines thinly, season with salt and allow to sweat for 5 minutes.

  • Remove salt from the aubergines with paper towels, then place in a bowl with the olive oil.

  • Coat the aubergines in olive oil and fry them until golden on both sides.

  • Stir garlic, chilli, chives, salt, pepper, lemon juice and zest into the remaining oil in the bowl.

  • Place the hot aubergines and olive oil marinade from the bowl into a sterilised jar or sealable container, and refrigerate.

  • The aubergines can be stored in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Sweet Potato Skordalia

  • Boil the sweet potato and garlic cloves in water until the sweet potatoes are cooked and soft.

  • Drain the sweet potato and garlic, then blend together with the rest of the ingredients in a food processor until smooth.

  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Pita Bread

  • Combine the oil, parsley, salt and pepper in a small bowl.

  • Brush the pitas with the oil mixture and fry in a hot pan on both sides until golden and crispy.

Serving

  • Arrange all the dishes alongside each other and serve.

Tips

  • The skordalia is a great dip for the dolmades.
