Celebrate the flavors of the Mediterranean by cooking up a Greek-inspired feast tonight. Our meatless menu below is a three-course meal that mixes traditional tastes with new interpretations of classic recipes, including a cheesy vegetable pie, healthful salad and more.

Food Network Kitchens’ Spinach and Feta Pie (pictured above) is a contemporary take on a classic Greek favorite, spanakopita. Made with white rice, Swiss chard and golden raisins in addition to classic ingredients like garlic, spinach and tangy feta cheese, this savory pie is built atop layers of store-bought phyllo dough and baked until the crust is crispy and the filling warm.

Ready to eat in just 10 quick minutes, Food Network Magazine’s Greek Salad (pictured left) is a fresh, vibrant mixture of ripe tomatoes, pickled peppers, salty Greek olives and a drizzle of fruity olive oil. This light and refreshing bowl is the ideal accompaniment to the hearty spinach pie.

In her Simple Baklava recipe, Giada transforms the famed Greek dessert — a rich, decadent dish that typically takes hours to prepare — into an easy, no-fuss treat that can be made in just 50 minutes. This deliciously sweet pastry boasts crunchy chopped nuts, chewy dried apricots and fragrant spices nestled inside bite-sized bundles of flaky dough. Watch how Giada assembles these golden-brown beauties then bake up a batch tonight.
