Leek Pie anyone??? Greeks love pies and we have a huge pie culture in many shapes, sweet or salty, thick or thin etc. We all grew up with granny's pies filled with cheese, spinach or anything that can be used as a filling. This recipe is about an easy no- filo pastry pie (one-mixture pie) , filled with leeks and feta cheese. I love this kind of pies, because they are easy to make and scrumptious!
You can enjoy this pie as an appetizer or even as breakfast!
500 gr. Leeks (2-3 Leeks)
200 gr. Feta Cheese
4 tbsp. Olive Oil
1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 cup All Purpose Flour
1/2 cup Milk
1 1/2 tbsp. Joghurt
1 1/2 tbsp. Cream Cheese
Preheat oven to 180 degrees (Fan).
Wash leeks and cut them into thin slices.
In a large frying pan over medium heat, add 2 tbsp. olive oil and sauté leeks for approx. 8 minutes, until they are slightly tender but not brown.
Remove from heat and set aside.
In a big bowl, add eggs, milk, yoghurt, cream cheese, baking powder, 1 tbsp. olive oil, salt and whisk until homogenised.
Add all purpose flour and continue whisking.
Crumble feta cheese with your hands and add it in the bowl.
Add leeks into the bowl and mix with a spoon, until there is a homogenised mixture.
Grease a round (approx. 28 cm) oven pan with olive oil and transfer the mixture in it.
Bake in the preheated oven for approx. 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
Cut into pieces, serve and enjoy!
