Athena’s Eggy Empanada- Veganized!

I called this Athena’s Eggy Empanada because this recipe is Greek inspired- with the fresh dill and kalamata olives. In my previous recipe,  I used actual eggs and feta cheese. The kalamata olives replace the feta in this recipe. I did not miss the feta at all since it has a similar salty flavor as…

Creamy Caper Dressing

I love the fresh flavors in Mediterranean food. Capers are from Greece, by the Mediterranean Sea, and are completely underrated. Capers are brined or dried and have a lemon, olive, salty flavor.
