7 Greek Recipes With Eggplants (Melitzanes)

Print Friendly and PDF

Eggplants - Melitzanes - are very popular in Greece, so I've put together a list of 7 popular recipes using them. To go to the recipes, just click on the names.



This is one of my favourites! Smooth and tangy. It's traditionally made with Greek strained yoghurt but can also be made with mayonnaise instead. Try both ways and see which you prefer - with mayonnaise it has a slightly thicker, richer taste.
A side dish which can be served with any meat, fish or vegetable dish.
 



These are delicious little rolls that you can have as a side dish or as part of a buffet.
 
 
 
 
This is a delicious meze! You can have it as an accompaniment to a meal, as a meze - which tastes wonderful with Tzatziki - or as part of a buffet.
 
 


Delicious! Many people who are not vegetarian have said that they actually prefer it to the "normal" moussaka, which is made with meat and not mushrooms.
 
 
 
 
This can be eaten hot or cold and is delicious when accompanied by a large slice of Feta cheese!




This recipe is called 'Politiko' Briam from the name 'Poli' which is what Greeks call Constantinopolis, and 'Politiko' recipes are from the Greeks who used to live there. The basic difference between this and ordinary Briam is the addition of Bechamel sauce on top.


 

These are called Papoutsakia - which means 'little shoes' in Greek - because they are shaped like little shoes.
Eat and Enjoy!
