savoury kolokothopita

Pumpkin pie, but nothing like other people’s pumpkin pie. The savoury version, made with or without phyllo, usually involves courgettes rather than pumpkin, cheese and onions. There are many versions.

The sweet version, κολοκυθόπιτα γλυκιά (kolokothopita glykia) is made with (or without) phyllo and pumpkin, raisins, walnuts, cinnamon, sesame, and cloves depending on your preference.
