Gigantes Plaki (Greek Baked Bean Casserole). One of the enduring food memories from our trip to Greece was an elementally simple meal of this dish plus some bread and horiatiki salata (greek summer salad). SO satisfying!
Greek Gigantes are, not surprisingly, GIANT beans! In this recipe, the gigantes are slow cooked in a rich tomato sauce until perfectly creamy and tender. Serve over toasted crusty bread for an easy vegetarian meal!
This Greek butter bean and spinach dish has a flavour combo that is completely addictive - tomato and mint. Eat it hot or cold with picnics and barbecues. Another beauty from Rick Stein's Venice to Istanbul series.
