Delicious Greek Dishes Ideal For Vegans

Traditional Greek cuisine consists mainly of Vegetarian and Vegan recipes. From luscious salads to healthy oily stews, hearty homemade pies and so much more. All cooked in a homely manner that fills your belly and keeps you going through the day.

These foods are what make our everyday meals, and are also, to begin with, one of the reasons why the Greek diet is considered very healthy.

In a Vegan diet, the lack of dairy and animal protein may sometimes leave you with a growling stomach. Rice can make up for this, giving you a very satisfying and energy-boosting meal. These Rice Stuffed Veggies aka Yemista, are an absolute must in this case. They're slowly baked in the oven, stuffed with a fresh vegetable, mint, & rice filling, and potatoes on the sides. Yummy!
