5 Minute Hummus

Lou Wilson

Hummus is such a staple in our house. It's so simple to make and can be used for so many meals from lamb wraps with hummus and tabouli to a healthy snack after work. This recipe has been tried and tested so many times and it's always delicious. Also trust me on this, once you taste hummus that is made on pure extra virgin olive oil, you will never go back.

Warm Marinated Olives

Lou Wilson

I first had these olives on my most recent trip to Greece in July. They were offered to us at one of the beautiful local restaurants behind the beach on Kea (a beautiful island just off the coast of Athens). It's a bit of a strange concept to warm olives but they are delicious and a health snack or perfect on a cheese platter.

Grilled Zucchini Salad

Lou Wilson

This recipe is so quick to make and packs a real punch. It's great for lunches as well as a side salad at dinner. We grow zucchinis in our garden at home because they are such a staple in our diet and in the mediterranean diet that the Greeks have eaten for thousands of years.

My Daughter's Greek Salad

Lou Wilson

This is a salad we eat pretty well everyday in our house. When we have a house hold of guests it's a perfect side salad and when I'm home alone, it's all I ever want for dinner. I'll admit it's not an 100% authentic Greek salad but it's my daughter's recipe and we all love it.

Gluten-free Orange, Olive oil, Honey and Almond Cake

Lou Wilson

This cake is guilt-free and gluten-free. It’s delicious as a dessert served with Greek Yoghurt(the closest to the authentic Greek yoghurt here in Australia, in my opinion, is Evia) or Coconut Yoghurt and berries. It’s made so much more healthy with the addition of Olea of Monemvasia Extra Virgin Olive Oil which is packed full of phenolic compounds and is fruity and delicious.
