So this is a really pitiful looking recipe catalogue…

Veganising my family’s recipes is always a work in progress. Some recipes are already vegan but others are quite challenging! Once I am happy with a recipe, I will publish them on the blog and list them on this page.

Although the Greek recipes are, well, Greek, please bear in mind that there are so many different versions of one dish and ten Greek grandmas will most likely make the one dish ten different ways (then each will claim their recipe is the best and the other nine do it wrong).
