Perfectly crisp and seasoned potato wedges straight out of your air fryer. It doesn't get any easier than this!

Mediterranean Chicken

Rating: 4.37 stars
577

Sauteed chicken simmered in a sauce of tomatoes, olives, white wine, garlic, and herbs. This recipe is from The WEBB Cooks, articles and recipes by Robyn Webb, courtesy of the American Diabetes Association. Preparation time: 20 minutes.

Greek Lentil Soup (Fakes)

Rating: 4.58 stars
644

Fakes (pronounced 'Fah-kehs') is a staple in the Greek kitchen, and an especially filling meal. It is traditionally served with a drizzle of olive oil and lots of vinegar. Though the vinegar is of course optional, try it. It lifts the lentils and adds another dimension of flavor!

Greek Salad I

Rating: 4.5 stars
269

This is an incredibly good Greek salad recipe, nice and tangy and even better in the summer when you use fresh vegetables!

Real Hummus

Rating: 4.55 stars
1201

This hummus is a family recipe passed down from many generations. Eat with warm pita bread.

Sugo di Pomodoro (Authentic Italian Tomato Sauce)

Rating: 4.86 stars
22

This is a basic recipe for authentic Italian tomato sauce flavored with extra-virgin olive oil, garlic and basil. Toss with your favorite pasta or use for pizza, gnocchi and more.

Pasta Fagioli

Rating: 4.54 stars
529

A traditional Italian soup. Serve with a crisp salad and a hot loaf of garlic bread and you have a meal! Serve with grated Parmesan cheese on top.

Baked Spaghetti Squash

Rating: 5 stars
3

Spaghetti squash is easily prepared in the oven--just cut it in half and bake it until the skin is easily pierced with a fork. You can then use it as a low-carb pasta substitute or turn it into salads. I often just eat it simply with some Parmesan cheese and olive oil. If you want you can season it before you bake it, but I usually spice it up later.

Grilled Octopus

Rating: 4.45 stars
11

Tenderized octopus, char-grilled and drizzled with extra virgin olive oil, a squeeze of fresh lemon, and a sprinkling of fresh parsley. Simple, yet deliciously satisfying!

Briam (Greek Baked Zucchini and Potatoes)

Rating: 4.59 stars
366

Briam is a traditional Greek roasted vegetable dish with potatoes, zucchini, tomatoes, and red onions with lots of olive oil. It is a typical example of Greek cuisine where a few simple ingredients are turned into an utterly delicious dish with little effort. It can be served as a main course. With olive oil as the only source of fat it is a quintessential example of the Mediterranean diet, and it is vegan to boot. If preferred, serve with a hearty chunk of feta on the side.

Greek Style Potatoes

Rating: 4.47 stars
640

Greek Style Potatoes is a simple recipe, and the closest I can get to the real thing. The best is that it can be adjusted to your taste as you bake it. I sometimes add a little more lemon. The potatoes are moist, and great with green beans and baked chicken with a little salsa and feta on top.
