Griekse kofta

Greek kofta

As you may know by now I love greek food. Now, I know this isn't Greek but a homemade version of the Greek Kofta packets you van buy in the supermarket. This is lovely with tzatziki and white rice.


Kofta is basically a dish m=with meatballs, on a skewer or not. In this dish we add loads of veggies so it's very nutritious.


I make tzatziki all of the time just because it fits well with pretty much everything.
