Lagana (Greek Lenten Bread)

The good news is, since my last post about bread failures, I’ve successfully made two yeasted breads. The bad news is, since my last post about bread failures, I’ve successfully made two yeasted breads.  ♥ Carbs ♥

Lagana is a Greek bread that is typically made and eaten on “Kathari Deftera,” which is literally translated to “Clean Monday.” It is the day that starts 40 days of Lent before Easter. For those celebrating Orthodox Easter, it’s this coming Monday. On Kathari Deftera, typical Lenten diets, like not eating meat, are observed, but most also do not eat certain types of fish or anything “with blood,” or dairy products.

Lagana is a long, ovalish shaped flatbread that many liken to focaccia. It’s incredibly easy to make and great with any number of dips or simply just olive oil.

  • This bread sounds great! Totally need to get on this!

  • Hi Elly!
    I may have missed your supposed bread “failures” but I certainly didn’t want to miss this one. I actually had this bread a very long time ago and have always wanted to bake it one day myself. Yours looks heavenly and I really appreciate you sharing it. I will definitely be pinning this and also coming back for more.

    Thank you so much for sharing Elly…Louise

    P.S. I know we just “met”, but I’m collecting meatball recipes for a post I’m doing for Meatball Day in March. You are more than welcome to join in. Just pop on over to my blog:) Louise

  • Yeah becoming a good bread maker does have a back lash. Lol. And I will say this
    looks like a winner to me. I would love this bread.

  • I don’t do Lent myself, but the.boy does try to be good on Fridays…definitely going to have to make him a loaf of this as a surprise!
