It may be autumn already but cooking summer vegetables is still going on. Basically most of them are at their best now in September having received the warmth of the last days of August. Zucchinis are still tender and sweet. We’ve sliced some and we’ve baked them with some special Greek cheeses. A perfect early autumn dish!
Zucchinis baked with Greek cheeses
3-4 large zucchinis sliced
1 large white onion finely sliced
1 garlic clove minced
1/3 cup esti extra virgin olive oil
3 Tsp Greek yoghurt
2/3 cup Greek Graviera (gruyere from goats milk)
½ crumbled feta cheese
2/3 cup kefalotiri (Greek hard cheese, mostly used on pasta dishes)
Salt (optionally, the cheeses are already salty)
Preheat oven to 150 °C
In a large skillet heat the olive oil over medium heat.
Add onion and garlic and sauté for 5 minutes until the onion begins to soften.
Add zucchinis to the skillet. Season but be cautious of the salt if the cheeses are too salty. Cook until the zucchinis are slightly tender.
Grease with some olive oil 20×20 cm casserole dish.
In a bowl add the yoghurt, and the cheeses, minus 2-3 Tsp. graviera and stir
Pour the mixture over the zucchinis and sprinkle with the remaining Graviera cheese.
Bake for approximately 20 mins or until top has become golden brown
