Aubergine pie with Feta Cheese
Aubergine is by far my favourite ingredient of the summer and one of my favourites in general . So I was wondering how it would taste in a pie with feta cheese. It didn’t disappoint.
The following pie is so easy to make that you don’t need any huge experience. If you use ready made phyllo pastry then it would be piece of cake.
Aubergines are the summer ingredient of choice and one of the basic ones in Mediterranean cuisine. Aubergine together with onions and feta cheese together with sesame on top will make you forget spinach pie and all other pies. Even if I do like spinach pie … a lot…

How to cook Greek style Aubergine pie
In a small pot we add the aubergines in a bit of olive and we stir them good until they get a good color all around.
Add the onions, salt and pepper and the semolina and stir them until we don’t have any more juices.
When the mixture is cold, add the eggs and the feta cheese together and stir them to become one mixture. Add the seasoning also.
In a nice deep pan, add the first pastry sheet. Put all the mixture and spread it nicely. Add the second sheet on top and close nicely the edges. Put the sesame seeds on top and spread them everywhere.
Put it in the oven and bake it for around an hour in 180c . Timings differ depending on the oven.
