Ingredients

  • Greek eggplant dip
  • 180g marinated chargrilled eggplant, including marinade
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
  • Olive oil
  • Tzatziki
  • 1 cup grated cucumber, squeezed well to remove juices
  • 1 cup Greek yoghurt
  • Zest & juice ½ lemon
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp chopped dill
  • Platter
  • 1 cup tabbouleh
  • 10 dolmades, fresh or tinned
  • 440g marinated artichokes, halved
    250g baby cucumbers, cut into spears
    250g cherry tomatoes
  • 4 pita breads, lightly toasted & cut into wedges
    110g olives, mixed
    200g feta cheese, cubed
  • Dried fruit (optional)
  • Fresh herbs, to serve (optional)

Method


  • Place the eggplant dip ingredients into a small food processor and pulse until just combined. The final texture is completely up to you, I like mine a bit chunky but you can make it as smooth as you like. Spoon into a dish and add a drizzle of olive oil.
  • Place the tzatziki ingredients into a bowl and mix until well combined. Spoon into a serving dish.
  • Add the tabbouleh to a small bowl and start filling your board.
  • On a large serving board, place the dishes of dip and tabbouleh wherever you would like.
  • Lay out the dolmades and the artichoke hearts, followed by the cucumber spears and the cherry tomatoes.
  • Start to fill in the gaps by placing the pita wedges, olives and feta cubes. You can also add optional dried fruit and/or lemon wedges.
  • Finish the platter by placing sprigs of fresh herbs to decorate.
