Boureki: a vegetarian dish from Crete with pumpkin, misithra and lots of fresh mint!

by katerinavigli

1For boureki (μπουρέκι) you need pumpkin, zucchini, potatoes and misithra. If you don’t have misithra you can choose a goat cheese from your area that could resemble it in taste.

Slice up your ingredients and mix them all together with salt, pepper, oregano, basil and a lot of fresh mint. Do not foget to use plenty of olive oil!

Place in a pan and pour some more misithra mixed with greek yogurt and bread crumbs over it.

Let it cook in a preheated oven at 200 Celcius for about an hour until the potatoes are soft and creamy.

Καλή όρεξη!
