Greek Zucchini Pie

Greeks love zucchinis…  From braising to boiling, it’s one of the most beloved vegetables of Hellenic cuisine.  Honestly, I prefer kolokithopita (zucchini pie in Greek) over spinach pie, otherwise known as spanikopita.

The texture of zucchini mixed with the Arborio rice is a match made in Greek heaven, although the rice is technically an Italian varietal mainly used for classic risotto.

In the winter months, I make this dish a bit more rice-heavy, and in the summertime, stuffed mostly with the zucchini and less rice.

Shine on,

Stella
