Greek leek pie

Pies are an essential feature in Greek cuisine. Every region has its own way of making them and a preference to certain ingredients. The most popular ones are those that combine vegetables with cheese- mainly feta cheese but other types of cheese are used as well.

Leek pie is a very nice pie, delicious with elegant flavors thanks to the sweetness the leek provides to the pie.
