Roasted cheesy tomato soup!

Cheese is on the spotlight again,but it shares it with the tomatoes.. Tomato soup..Yum Yum! It may sounds boring and bluh but not this one! is so easy and so delicious that you’ll want to eat the whole pot of soup!

The ingredients:

  • 5-6 roma tomatoes
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/4 tsp chili peppers
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 red pepper,diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 medium onion
  • a pinch of paprika
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

How we make it:

Preheat the oven at 375 F.

Wash and cut the tomatoes into thirds, Drizzle with a little olive oil and let them roast for about 15-20 minutes.




Add all the ingredients in the blender except the cheese and the oil. Blend them  until puree them and pour it in the pot to heat it. When it starts to simmer,let it for couple of minutes and remove from heat.

Add the cheese.You can add some chopped green onions as I did and just a little bit of cream. I made some garlic cheese  bread to accompany the soup.


The soup is scrumptious!!

4 cheese mini tyropita (cheese pie)

Happy belated New Year everyone! May all your wishes come true!

I haven’t blog for a while. Anna starts to color the walls and the house looks like an art gallery,but I don’t discourage her…! Thankfully,the walls are washable! The good thing is that she loves helping me with some housework,like putting the clothes on the dryer,she pretends that she’s vacuuming.. I’m so lucky! Anyway…!

Last week my mom sent me a gluten free recipe for mini cheese pies,but I added more cheese that it actually says on the recipe.

For the pie crust you’ll need:

  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup lukewarm  milk
  • 1 1/2 tsp gf yeast
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 350 grams GF  flour for pastry ( till the dough becomes a non stick,soft ball, easy to knead.)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

For the filling:

  • 1/4 cup shredded aged Gouda
  • 1/4 cup shredded halloumi cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded kefalograviera (you can use provolone instead)
  • 2 tbsp Gorgonzola
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp mint ( it all depends how much you love mint!)
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • a pinch of pepper

Just mix all the ingredients together.

What you do:

Preheat oven at 200 F

In a ball add the lukewarm milk,salt,sugar and the dry yeast. Let it sit for 3-4 minutes. When the milk mixture becomes foamy add the oil and egg.

Add the flour gradually and mix with a spatula. In the end you’ll have a soft,dough that doesn’t stick in your hands.

Make small balls and with a tablespoon press the center and add the filling. I put mine in a muffin tin.


Put the mini pies into the oven for 15 minutes,till they rise.

Increase the temperature at 350 F and bake for 20-25 minutes.



The results are amazing! The crust is crunchy on the outside  but fluffy and soft on the inside! The filling is divine!  We literally devour them and George asked to make them again!


You should try it!! 🙂
