Sweet potato Ala Greek-Litsa!

Sweet potato Ala Greek-Litsa!

So many ways to stuff sweet potatoes, and here is mine! 

You will need,

2 sweet potatoes

2 tbsp butter

1 cup Feta chunks more if you like 

1 cup Greek yogurt

3 sprigs of dill finely chopped

2 fresh green onions finely chopped

Bacon cooked and cut into little pieces as much as you like

Here is what to do!

Wash the potatoes and dry them well

Pock them with a fork all over

Microwave them for 7 minutes on high

Let them cool and cut them lengthwise but not all the way through!

With a fork loosen the potato and add the butter and a little salt and pepper

Continue with the Feta, yogurt dill and onion and last add the bacon

Be generous, if your potatoes are very big you might need more cheese

Your sweet potatoes ala Greek are ready to compliment your protein, fish, meat, poultry or if you are a vegetarian they are a complete meal!

I hope you like them as much as I do!

 

 

 

Clams by Litsa!

Written by Litsa Bolontzakis. Posted in Main Dishes

Clams and all kinds of seafood, Or according to the French the Fruit of the sea “fruit de Mer”I love!

If you have the pleasure of living close to the sea you know what I’m talking about!

Fresh seafood with a little Ouzo or a nice glass of white wine and it’s perfection!

I can enjoy the moment by myself, this way I can take it all in and sometimes this is all you need! Very therapeutic indeed!

Other times a good friend will enhance the moment no dought!

Here is my recipe for a delightful dish of seafood!

You will need! 

3 dozen small hard-shelled clams-scrubbed well, this recipe is for 2

¼ cup olive oil

Clams by Litsa!

Clams by Litsa!

1 onion sliced

2 cloves garlic

½ cup chopped parsley

½ cup red wine

½ cup prepared tomato sauce

¼ cup water

Salt, pepper and a touch of sugar

½ cup feta crumbs

Here is what to do

In a heavy pan with cover, add the oil and sauté onion and garlic until transparent.

Deglaze with the wine, add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 3-4 minutes.

At this point add the clams and cover.

Heat has to be moderately high, cook for 7 minutes or until clams are open.

They will open with the steam

Discard any that did not open after 7 minutes, they are not eatable and will never open!

Place them on a platter, and keep them warm. Make sure the sauce is nice and thick if not, cook a few more minutes and pour over clams!

Serve with nice bread, because the sauce is delicious…

The fish that we have with this recipe is a slice of white fish with the skin, and we make sure that our fish is patted dry, seasoned with salt and pepper and fried in olive oil until skin is nice and crisp.

You can use, bass, grouper, snapper to name a few, and these are great for frying and searing.

Summer and salads, with vegetables, picked at the perfect moment we need them, that is what makes a perfect salad!

We look and see if there are any local farmers markets and we visit them, they are bursting with seasonal products, and it is a celebration, the land celebrates a job well done with the different colors, textures, and flavors, it’s like it’s saying to us, I am strong and no matter what you do to me I will still feed you and provide for you….You are not kind to me but I have staying power and I care for you…

Unconditional Love!

I like to pick the gifts of the land myself and I am fortunate to have a farm very close to my house, what a delightful time I enjoy!
