Traditional in Greece, Bouyourdi is a delicious dish, a kind of hot appetizer made of vegetables and feta cheese. We can adapt it with Romanian ingredients, meaning if we don't have a feta cheese we can use a sheep's or goat's cheese. In addition to cheese, which is the star, we use peppers and tomatoes, good quality olive oil and oregano. These are the main ingredients that should not be missing. I find it a suitable dish at any time of the day, be it an aperitif or a main course. Honestly, after enjoying it at lunch, I was not able to eat anything after… maybe an ice cream J )) If you are a cheese fan, or simply meet Bouyourdi on the menu of a tavern in Greece, I invite you to try it. It is accessible to everyone, absolutely delicious and can be consumed by both adults and children.
1 small zucchini (optional)
2 fleshy tomatoes (I used the ox heart variety)
1 bell pepper
2 slices of feta cheese (120-150 gr)
50 ml olive oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper
1 teaspoon oregano
50 gr mozzarella (small bulgarasi)
Grated cheese for top (optional)
Zucchini is optional. I had it lost in the fridge and used it in the recipe. Slice the zucchini, salt and let it drain for 15-20 minutes. Pumpkin slices are swabbed with paper napkins, spray a little oil and fry on the grill. Grease a heat-resistant dish with olive oil, put the slices of divlecel on the bottom of the bowl.
Tomatoes and peppers are washed, cleaned and cut into cubes of about the same size. Season with salt, pepper, oregano and olive oil, mix. Put half of the mixture over the pumpkin slices. Top with sliced feta cheese, pepper, oregano and half the amount of olive oil. Cover the cheese with the remaining mixture of tomatoes and peppers, put the mozzarella bulbs cut in half, season with pepper, oregano and pour the rest of the olive oil.
If we like we can put a little grated cheese on top. Cover the bowl with aluminum foil and put in the oven heated to 180 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Serve hot food with slices of bread / toast / stick. May it be useful to you!
Enjoy Greece !!!
