Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

  1. 1. Lightly oil a large baking tray (ideally the same dimensions as a sheet of filo pastry)
    2. Place cubed feta into mixing bowl and select 'Turbo' 1s. Turbo 1-2x to obtain desired coarseness of feta crumbs. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
    3. Weigh 600-700g plain yoghurt into the bowl.
    4. Add 1 heaped tsp bicarbonate of soda. Mix: 4s sp 4.
    5. Leave in bowl for a few minues - it should rise and become foamy.
    6. Add 3 large eggs, 2 pinches salt (to taste), 2 pinches sugar (to taste) and 1 tbsp olive oil. Mix 10s sp 4.
    7. Place two sheets of filo into the base of the baking dish.
    8. Pour on about 1/8th batter and spread over the pastry with a brush or back of a spoon. Sprinkle approx 1/7th reserved feta over.

Tip

It is lovely served with a drizzle of honey or sprinkled with traditional Bulgarian 'Sharana salt'

Make your own yoghurt using recipes from the Basic Cookbook.

You can vary the filling by adding some baby spinach leaves with the feta or replacing the feta with caramelised onion and sweetcorn.
