Greek Eggplants with Tomato Sauce and Feta Cheese in the Oven

This is another Greek recipe with eggplants and is very easily prepared.

6 medium eggplants
1kg very ripe fresh tomatoes grated
300g feta cheese crumbled
8 cloves garlic finely chopped
3 tbsp fresh basil roughly cut
200ml sunflower oil
2 tbsp olive oil
Salt to taste


Cut the eggplants in half lengthwise.

Leave them in a bowl of salty water for 1 hour, making sure they are all covered by the water.

When you remove them from the water, squeeze them to drain off the water.

Put the sunflower oil in a shallow oven dish and place the eggplant halves in the dish with the flat white part facing down.

Brush all the eggplants with the oil in the dish.

Sprinkle salt over them.

Place in a pre-heated oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, put the olive oil in a saucepan and heat.

When it has heated, add the finely chopped garlic and stir for a few seconds.

Add the grated tomatoes.

Add salt and leave to simmer uncovered for approx. 45 minutes, until the sauce has thickened.

Add the basil and turn off the heat.

When you have removed the eggplants from the oven, transfer them carefully one by one to another over dish – this time with the skin underneath.

Spread the tomato sauce over each of the eggplant halves and then spread the crumbled feta cheese over each of them.

Put the oven dish back in the oven (which you haven’t turned off) at 200 degrees Celsius until the feta cheese has coloured slightly – approx. 5-10 minutes.

Greek Rice Pudding - Rizogalo

Greek Rizogalo is not a 'pudding' as such, but is a delightfully refreshing sweet that can be eaten at any time - for breakfast it is especially enjoyable! It is very easy and quick to prepare and can be served in small bowls (as in the photo) with cinnamon sprinkled on top, or larger bowls if you so wish.


1 litre milk

250ml heavy cream (approx. 35% fat)

100g glasse rice

70g sugar

Cinnamon to sprinkle on top


Put the milk, cream, rice and sugar into a pan and bring to the boil.

Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring continuously with a wooden spoon.

Pour into small bowls and set aside to cool.

Once it has cooled, place the bowls in the fridge so that they can be served cold.

Serve with a little cinnamon sprinkled on top.

'Supermoon' Over Ancient Greek Temple

This weekend there was a massive full moon - known as a 'supermoon'. This short, rough video shows the supermoon over the Ancient Greek Temple at Cape Sounion.

The moon appears brighter and larger due to its proximity to the earth during its orbit.
