Feta cheese pie (easy)
Method

For the cheese pie

  • Preheat oven to 170* C (338* F) Fan.
  • In a bowl, add the feta and break it up with a fork into uneven pieces.
  • Add the gouda, gruyere, oregano, pepper, thyme and basil.
  • Place a pan over heat. Add the coriander and cumin. Sauté for 1-2 minutes so that they can release their aromas.
  • Remove from heat and transfer spices to a mortar and pestle. Crush them and add to bowl with cheeses.
  • Add the nutmeg and mix well.
  • Brush a 28 cm tart pan with a removable base with olive oil.
  • Spread a sheet of phyllo dough in the tart pan and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Spread another sheet of phyllo over it in a crisscross manner.
  • Spread a sheet of phyllo on a working surface, drizzle with olive oil and add some of the filling.
  • Cover with another sheet of phyllo and add some of the filling.
  • Repeat the same process until all of the phyllo sheets and filling are done.
  • When spreading the last sheet of phyllo, drizzle with some olive oil and roll the phyllo and filling to make a roll, starting from the wider side.
  • Use a serrated knife to cut into 8 equal sized rolls.
  • Carefully place the rolls, vertically, over the phyllo in the tart pan.
  • Turn the edges of the overhanging phyllo inward, to create a nest.
  • Drizzle the whole pie with any remaining olive oil.

For the mixture

  • In a bowl, add the milk, eggs, salt, pepper, some ground nutmeg and the baking powder. Whisk thoroughly.
  • Pour mixture into tart pan over rolls.
  • Allow the pie to sit at room temperature for 20 minutes so that it can absorb the milk mixture.
  • Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes.

To serve

  • On a large chopping board, prepare a salad with rocket leaves, cherry tomatoes, some olive oil, salt, pepper and basil.
  • Place the cheese pie soufflé over the salad, cut into pieces and serve.
