Have you heard about what a few of my favorite bloggers are doing?  Ivy at Kopiaste, Giz at Equal Opportunity Kitchen and Val at More Than Burnt Toast  have teamed together to create Blogger Aid, a network of bloggers banding together to help alleviate world hunger.  Their newest project is a cookbook created by bloggers that will be published and sold with 100% of the profits going toward the World Food Programme.

Anyone can submit an original recipe to this cookbook and help a great cause. But, the deadline for entering is this Thursday, February 12th, so get cracking! Errr…cooking. You can read all about the cookbook and how to contribute here.

For my contribution, I wanted to make something Greek-inspired, but not a typical dish you’d find at the local Greek diner. This recipe combines short ribs, butter beans (gigandes, a popular bean in Greek cooking) and dandelion greens (horta, a common green usually served as a side with lots of fresh lemon and olive oil). It’s comforting and tasty, but…to get the recipe, you’ll  have to buy the cookbook!
