Artichoke Pie with Leek - Aginaropita

By July 25, 2011


This recipe for Artichoke Pie or Pita is a traditional favorite of the beautiful island of Kefalonia in the Ionian Sea.

Tender baby artichokes are combined with green onions, leek, and a combination of Greek cheeses then layered with flaky phyllo pastry and baked until crisp and golden brown.

You can make a full pan of the pita or use the filling to make individual finger-friendly phyllo triangles. Enjoy this recipe on its own as a light meal or pair it with an entrée as a side dish.

If artichokes are out of season or not readily available, you can easily substitute frozen or canned artichokes in the recipe.
