One of the absolute best things about travelling is spying on another countries cuisine!
Flavours and ingredients that inspire me to think about food in a new way but, to them is just a bowlful of home. Often times young ones sitting while watching their mother go through lengthy cooking processes that resulted in the best flavour of familiarity and comfort.
Food is culture, simply what a country eats is usually what grows there. The poorest households often feast on vegetables and grains but make them taste incredible. I am still surprised by the flavours of plant-based food.
A roasted parsnip tastes like fennel, a slow-cooked onion can taste like caramel, a toasted sesame seed can taste like a campfire. But before I get completely out of hand talking about the flavours of plants I wanted you to get excited about these bowls full of Greek flavours.
I am focusing on the flavours of herbs, citrus, nuts, and of course olives. I intended on using the most loved eggplant/aubergine but I forgot to included it so it’s for another day. Enjoy these super easy Greek-inspired Vegan bowls.
