This is one of the first dishes Owen ever cooked for me, and is a great way of using up lots of green vegetables. As usual I don't tend to follow any particular recipie, hence the quantities are a little vague. I tend to use enough vegetables to feed four and about 2-3 tablespoons of yogurt.
Courgette – diced
Leeks – sliced
Feta – 250g packet
Fry the leeks till soft, add the courgette, followed by peas and broccoli till they are all cooked, season with salt and pepper. Once they are cooked tip into a bowl and mix in some yogurt, feta (cubed) and a pinch of cumin. Add in a handful of chopped mint and parsley.
Brush a dish with oil and then layer a sheet of filo pastry, brush with oil and add another layer, I normally place about 6-10 sheets of filo pastry. Add the filling and then top with more sheets of filo pastry, then place in a hot oven to bake for about 30 mins.

Matthew used to make this for me, too. Now I usually make it, and I include 4 eggs and 1 cup yogurt, lots of grated cheddar as well as the feta & it serves about 5-6. Bethany even likes it, but not Zoe, although she likes most of the ingredients and especially likes brushing the filo.
Us Stephenses sure know how to woo our other halfs – I made this for Jon too! I also add egg which seems to bulk it out a bit. Nice with buttered potatoes.
Oh yeah I forgot about the egg, and this time i also added chili flakes – not a good idea, perhaps I should follow the recipie for a change.
