Greek Vegetarian Dishes

Yes, you read right. Vegetarian! I know that is seemed a taboo word in the Greek culture, but there is one time a year when Greeks do actually go vegetarian, and that is around the holy time of Easter. 

This is the time when many Greeks stay away from meat and dairy, and we are 20 days in so far! If you are fasting then well done! If anyone needs some inspiration for some good vegetarian Greek dishes, then I have got some good examples below to help inspire you, you can just Google the titles to find recipes of them if you need to.

Gigantes Plaki: (Giant bean casserole. You see, the English stole the word "gigantic" from us...)
Fasolakia(Fresh green beans with tomato)

Yemista: (Stuffed tomatoes with rice)
Fakes: (Lentil soup)
Louvi: (Black eyed beans)

If you can think of any other good ones, please leave them below and let us know how you are getting on with your fast!
