In reality, there are plenty of Greek recipes that can be made on a reasonable budget. In this blog post, we'll share some of our favorite Greek recipes that won't break the bank.

  1. Moussaka Moussaka is a classic Greek dish that is perfect for a hearty dinner. It's made with layers of eggplant, ground beef, and a creamy bรฉchamel sauce. To make this dish more budget-friendly, you can substitute the ground beef with ground turkey or even lentils. You can also use canned tomatoes instead of fresh ones to save money.

  2. Spanakopita Spanakopita is a savory pastry that is filled with spinach and feta cheese. It's a great appetizer or snack that can be made on a budget. Instead of using fresh spinach, you can use frozen spinach that has been thawed and drained. You can also use a cheaper type of cheese instead of feta, such as ricotta or cottage cheese.

  3. Tzatziki Tzatziki is a refreshing dip that is made with yogurt, cucumber, and garlic. It's perfect for dipping vegetables or pita bread. To make this dip more budget-friendly, you can use plain Greek yogurt instead of expensive Greek-style yogurt. You can also use dried dill instead of fresh dill to save money.

  4. Greek Salad Greek salad is a simple and healthy dish that can be made on a budget. It's made with tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, feta cheese, and olives. You can use cheaper types of tomatoes and cucumbers, such as Roma tomatoes and English cucumbers. You can also use a cheaper type of cheese instead of feta, such as goat cheese or even cheddar.

  5. Souvlaki Souvlaki is a popular Greek street food that is made with marinated meat and vegetables on skewers. You can use cheaper cuts of meat, such as chicken thighs or pork shoulder, instead of expensive cuts like lamb.
