Recent statistics show that the Greeks outperformed the French in terms of average annual cheese consumption, which is currently more than 32 kg per person in Greece. This is not a special surprise, because the Greeks replace meat that they do not eat too much. Cheese in Greek cuisine has many uses and it is easier to name dishes in which it is not a component than vice versa. The popular feta or mizithra are found not only in salty but also in sweet dishes. For example, let the feta, described here, baked in filo with honey and sesame. It is a quick and very simple snack.
Feta flavor can be enriched with a mastic, but it is possible to buy only in Greece, so if you do not have it, it's hard. Some also add fresh thyme to the cheese, which gives the feta a slightly different good taste. We, for our part, are encouraged to try the basic version of the recipe first. In this dish, the delicate feta will work best.
1. Warm up the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. When it warms up to the set temperature, we prepare packages with feta cheese.
2. We slice the patties of filo pastry in half. We wrap each feta cube with two sheets. We spread each batter of the dough first with olive oil. We put cheese on the prepared filo and then wrap it. We do the same with the second filo patch.
3. We put both finished packets on a flat baking tray and place in the oven. We bake feta for 20 minutes to obtain a golden color. Heat the hot dish with honey and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
This dish can also be fried on hot oil in a pan. However, in this case, the filo doughs are pre-lubricated with olive oil during preparation.
Melitzanosalata is another application of popular aubergines in Greece. Delicious pasta, in which the main role is played by this unique vegetable, can be an addition to meat dishes but above all it will be great as a bread paste with which it really tastes great. It is easy to prepare and it is worth doing in the summer when fresh local aubergines are available.
Feta from the oven is a great way for a quick and very tasty dish that will appeal to fry-eaters and lovers of Greek cuisine. The absolute condition of success is the use of the original Greek fete and not the Polish substitute, which has nothing to do with real feta. As with other dishes, there are several ways to prepare feta from the oven. If the dish is to fulfill the task of a snack, we only need one feta packet for 2 people.
The best to prepare will be big meaty black Greek olives called throubes. Alternatively, you can use the more popular kalamata variety. However, if you can not use whole olives, you can use the finished paste as we wrote above. However, it should be noted that the list of ingredients is as short as possible and devoid of E-chemistry.
