Recipes from the Summer Party - Greek Courgette Pie

I have been nagging Katy Brierley since the party to share this with us.  It is the recipe for the dill and mint filo pastry dish she brought.  It went down a storm.  For the details see below

Greek courgette pie (can be made with spinach)

Ingredients  - for 10-12 people
  • 1 kg courgettes
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 4 spring onions, chopped
  • 150ml olive oil
  • 1 pack of filo pastry
  • 300g feta cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 120ml double cream
  • bunch of dill
  • bunch of parsley
  • mint leaves stripped from 2-3 stems
  • milk for glazing
  • sesame seeds for scattering
Grate courgettes and salt them-allow them to drain for 30 mins.
Fry both types of onions in olive oil 'till soft-add courgettes. Fry for 15 mins untill excess liquid evaporates.
Preheat oven to 200.
Place 3 sheets of oiled filo in base of 30x40 oven tray.
Pour in courgette mixture. Crumble over feta.
Beat eggs and cream and drizzle over the top, add herbs and salt and pepper.

 Fold in the filo sheets enclosing the mixture or add more sheets on to, sealing them into the sides of the tin. Brush with oil and scatter sesame seeds on top.

Cook for about 1 hour. Cool for 15 mins before eating.

Thanks Katy
