    The only tricky part of this recipe is working with filo pastry, but once you get used to it - it's easy. Sometimes you get a batch of filo that rips and tears, so I always buy an extra just in case. I usually freeze these before baking. Just add a few minutes to the cooking time if you are cooking them from frozen. I have also doubled this recipe for large parties.

    This is a clever variation on the traditional, meat-based Greek dish that is usually quite high in fat. The meat has been replaced with a selection of vibrantly coloured vegetables and the protein is supplied by borlotti beans. The dish is topped in the traditional way but with a yoghurt-based sauce.

    A nice mix of runner beans, onion and tomatoes simmered until soft and delicious! These are called 'Fasolakia' in Greek. Just like Ya Ya used to make!

    This Greek-inspired pasta dish combines the quintessential flavours of the eastern Mediterranean - olive oil, tomatoes, oregano and feta.

    Fresh broad beans are among the most anticipated summer vegetables. You can use fresh broad beans for this recipe - just go about cleaning them as needed. But this traditional Greek dish can be enjoyed year round with tinned or frozen broad beans, which is almost just as good! Serve with crusty bread and good feta for a hearty vegetarian main.

    This is a quick, garlicky Mediterranean olive spread. Similar to the French tapenade, but without capers. Excellent served with good crusty bread.

    Halloumi is a firm-textured Cypriot cheese that's delicious char-grilled. Here it's served with red onions on a bed of soft salad leaves, then drizzled with a hot dressing. Serve with good seeded crusty bread.
