Βαθμός Δυσκολίας:


  • 6 leeks sliced, (just the white part)
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil
  • 600 gr. lean minced beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tbsp. cumin powder
  • 1/2 tbsp. dry coriander powder
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • salt-freshly ground pepper
  • 700 gr. filo pastry (ideally country-style “horiatiko filo)
  • 150 gr. olive oil for drizzling
  • 2 tbsp.
  • Sesame seeds


  • To make the filling of the leek pie, heat 4 tbsp. olive oil in a wide pot over medium heat. Saute the chopped onion for 1 ‘.
  • Add the leeks and stir lightly. Leave them to soften for 7′-8 ‘, periodically shaking the pot to keep the leeks in shape.
  • Add the minced meat to the pot, break it up with the help of a fork or spoon so that no large pieces remain and sauté for 4′-5 ‘until it changes color.
  • Add the spices and broth.
  • Let the mixture simmer for 10 ‘on low heat. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
  • In a bowl, beat the eggs and add them to the mixture for the pie.
  • Preheat a fan-oven to 170. C
  • Lightly grease a large oven baking tray.
  • Spread the first sheet of filo and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Repeat the process with half the filo pastry from the package.
  • Spread the filling evenly over the filo and then repeat the process of spreading the remaining filo.
  • We wrap the leaves that are left on the sides inwards, smearing them with olive oil. Tuck the left over filo pastry inward round the pan and brush with olive oil.
  • Brush the top of the pie with olive oil, sprinkle with sesame seeds and cut into 12 pieces.

Cook’s Tip

For more flavor, add a little chopped mint or dill to the mixture.

Doctor’s Tip

All types of pies increase sugar in diabetics, so if possible, prefer those with wholemeal filo pastry.
