Greek pumpkin and feta cheese pie


For the phyllo dough

  • In a mixer’s bowl add the flour, the water, the vinegar, the olive oil, salt, and beat with the hook attachment at high speed, for 4-5 minutes, until there is a malleable dough.
  • Transfer the dough to a greased bowl, cover with a towel and set aside to rest.

For the filling

  • Place a frying pan over medium heat and add 4-5 tablespoons olive oil.
  • Coarsely chop the onion, cut the peppers into cubes and add them to the frying pan.
  • Finely chop the garlic, add it to the pan and sauté until the vegetables are golden.
  • Clean the pumpkin and grate it, using the large holes of a box grater. Add the pumpkin to the pan and sauté at high heat for 10-15 minutes, so that it loses its water.
  • Add the milk, the trahana, mix for 2-3 minutes and remove from the heat.
  • Add the kefalotyri cheese, the feta crumbled with your hands, the oregano, the mint, salt, pepper, 2-3 tablespoons olive oil, the eggs, and mix well.

To assemble

  • Preheat the oven to 180ο C (350ο F) set to fan.
  • Divide the dough into 5 pieces. With a rolling pin, roll out each piece into a sheet about 20x40 cm. If the dough sticks, then dust with a little flour.
  • Add 1/5 of the filling and spread it over the whole surface of the phyllo sheet. Wrap into a roll and transfer to a greased 35 cm baking pan. Place the roll at the center of the baking pan, shaped like a snail. In between, drizzle with a little olive oil so that the phyllo does not stick together.
  • Follow the same process for the remaining phyllo sheets and the filling.
  • Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and bake for 50-60 minutes.
  • Let it cool and serve.
