Courgette Pie Recipe

courgette pie

We picked up this recipe from a chap who ran beach tavern in Fourka, Greece

Ingredients for Courgette Pie:

  • 1 kilo of courgettes
  • 500 grams of puff pastry
  • 5 medium sized onions
  • Half a cup of butter
  • Cup of olive oil
  • 2 and half cups of cheddar cheese
  • 4 beaten eggs
  • Parsley
  • Salt and pepper

Method for Courgette Pie:

  1. Clean the courgettes and cut them into small pieces. Boil them in salted water strain well afterwards.
  2. Grate the onions and add to the courgette. Put all this into a frying pan and cook until the water from the courgettes has been absorbed.
  3. Add the butter and allow to fry for a while.
  4. Next add the parsley, salt, pepper, cheese and beaten eggs. Mix.
  5. Use the oil to coat the baking tin, add the pastry leaving enough to put a lid onto the pie.
  6. Oil the pastry before adding the mixture.
  7. Pop the lid on and trim. Cook in a medium oven until the pastry is golden (about 45 minute)

Notes:

Based on a Greek recipe this makes a delicious pie that can be eaten hot or cold. We found it made 3 pies and froze two of them. Better fresh than frozen but still very nice, just the same.
