Greek Cooking Class: Spanakopita, Greek Salad, Baba Ganouj, Hummus, Couscous (and Chocolate Baklava)

It's hard to believe that my 6-week cooking class is almost over! In tonight's penultimate session, we made Greek and Mediterranean dishes. One team made tasty spanakopita with fresh spinach, a flavored pesto tofu, Sunergia Soyfoods' organic vegan "feta cheese", onions, spices, and filo dough - it was flaky and quite good. The other team made chocolate baklava (not shown here) - very nice!

One team made very good "green hummus" (by mixing in parsley to the tahini, chickpeas, garlic, etc.) and the other roasted an eggplant to make baba ganouj. We had couscous and a delicious Greek salad with cabbage, olives (oil-cured and a Greek mix of mainly Kalamata), bell peppers, and other vegetables, plus lime juice and olive oil.
