Greek yoghurt, check – feta cheese, check- mint leaves check.this is the quickest and most Greek pie you will ever make: Greek yoghurt and cheese pie.
I am pretty sure you love Greek yoghurt either as breakfast with nuts and honey or as a light dessert, It is undoubtedly an innocent late evening meal. We definitely use it a lot and love it for its creaminess and rich yet refreshing flavour. It is one of the most versatile ingredients, from tzatziki to marinades, yoghurt is key to yumminess.
It’s not just me who loves it. The Vima gourmet food blog awards winners decided to celebrate our awards online and cook with Greek yoghurt. I decided to make a very simple pie and most importantly very quick pie.
