It’s easy, Fast, and colorful. It looks so festive that I decided to publish it for the New Year’s Eve parties.

Arroz à Grega (“Greek-style rice” – Although given the name “Greek”, in Greece there is no such rice dish) is a Brazilian dish, consisting of rice (of course) cooked with raisins and small pieces of vegetables, the most common of them are small cubes of carrot, green peas, sweet corn and green onions. It can get small bits of ham (smoked or not), sausage and/or turkey breast (smoked or not), among other processed meat supposed to be eaten cold, but if chicken meat or shrimps are used, it is instead known as risotto.


So what’s so special about the way Brazilians cook rice? What makes this so different is that we fry it in oil with minced garlic and sometimes chopped onion before adding water. I dare you try this way and tell me you prefer plain tasteless rice instead. I know that you will never go back to eating boring unseasoned rice again.

This is how to cook the perfect fluffiest flavourful rice! It’s not hard at all but, like hard boiling eggs, cooking rice is one of those tasks that appear to be easy, but can go wrong very quickly if you don’t follow the right steps. Here are simple instructions that will help you make rice that turns out light, flavourful and fluffy every time. The secret is to not let it overcook because it should come out loose and not sticky.


Tabule (also Tabbouleh, tabbouleh or tab(b)ouli) is a vegetarian dish (sometimes considered a salad) made of bulgur, tomatoes, finely chopped fresh mint, parsley, green onion, and onion, all tossed and seasoned with olive oil, lemon juice, and salt.


Slow-roasting tomatoes brings out such sweet, intense flavor. You get almost all of the concentrated flavor of sun-dried tomatoes but without the drying.

Mixed with tons of garlic, oregano and fresh basil, I don’t know how it works… but it tastes like heaven in your mouth. They take on an intensely deep flavour after roasting and can be used in many different ways. It’s perfect to eat with toast, breads, crackers, salads, pasta, goat cheese, bocconcini… you name it.

My mom makes it since I was a child and everyone loves it.
