I grew up in a lovely Cypriot household and my mother was a wonderful cook who made every meal from scratch. Even as a child this was one of my favourites.
We ate a lot of greens and beans, meat was reserved for the weekends usually. This dish is super easy to make and my children love it as much as I did at their age. —Christine
