Greek roasted vegetables (Tourlou-Tourlou)

 Here is a summer recipe that is so easy and at the same time so delicious. All the vegetables are so happy when we put them together that they create a symphony of flavors.

If you are a vegetarian this recipe is just for you.

If not this is a beautiful side for pork chops, roasted chicken and much more….

Have fun and a happy summer


You will need:

2 large potatoes

2 Italian eggplants

2 zucchini

2 carrots

10 mushrooms

1 large red pepper

½ cup olive oil

½ cup tomato sauce

¼ cup apple cider vinegar

1 cup water

Salt, pepper, roasted garlic powder, oregano and a little sugar

Here is what you do:

Cut the vegetables in medium size pieces, place them in a large bowl and rub them with the apple cider vinegar, season them very well. Place them in the pan you are going to bake them in and add the tomato sauce, oil and water.

Bake in a hot oven for 30 min at 375.I like my vegetables done but not mushy….If you feel they need a little more time, roast them a little longer.


Season’s books By Litsa Bolontzakis

Written by Litsa Bolontzakis. Posted in My thoughts

I want to share with you this review of the Season’s books,Tony Danas had something nice to say…

What a pure delight!

These books capture the simple moments in life that we often forget. While reading it, there was so much emotion coming from the author and the nostalgia of how beautiful life is as a child. The innocence and natural desire to explore. The deep emotions and the beautiful pictures just jump out of the pages. You almost feel as though you are right there experiencing it.

My daughter enjoyed looking at the pictures and bold colours and was entertained by the stories. It made me think about the memories that we as parents have the privilege to create in our children’s lives.

The simple read was a breath of fresh air because for me it highlighted the importance of keeping reading a fun and memorable time And what better way than to make delicious snacks. These books cover it all, right down to easy cooking for little ones. Thank you so much for publishing such wonderful and inspirational books. Looking forward to reading more.
