"Batzina" is a traditional pumpkin pie from the area of Thessaly, easy to make - as there is no pastry sheet up and down - and so much tasty! We find it in many interesting variations.


1.200 gr. pumpkin (only the flesh, clean and grated)

500 gr. feta cheese, grated

4 eggs

250 ml fresh milk

60 ml extra virgin olive oil

250 gr. self rising flour

2 tablespoons of parsley, finely chopped

2 tablespoons of mint, finely chopped

extra virgin olive oil (for the baking pan)

salt & pepper

Mix all the ingredients together with a wire whisk until thoroughly blended. Coat the baking pan with a little of olive oil and add the mixture into it. Pour ½ cup of olive oil all over the pie. Bake the pumpkin pie in the oven, 200οC,  for 45 - 60 minutes or until knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cut in squares and serve either hot or cold.
