  • 3 lb Large zucchini, washed, sliced into thin rounds
  • 1 Large onion, chopped
  • 2 lb Large potatoes, peeled, cut into thin rounds
  • 3/4 Cup olive oil
  • 1/2 Cup flour
  • 1 lb Ricotta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 lb Mizithra cheese, grated
  • 2 tbsp Fresh mint, minced
  • 5 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 Cup water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
How to make Boureki:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Place the zucchini, potato and onion into a bowl and sprinkle with flour, salt and pepper.
  • Add all the grated cheese, garlic, mint, olive oil and toss to coat all the slices.
  • Now pour this mixture into a greased 13 X 9 inch pyrex baking dish.
  • Push down with palms of hands to compact somewhat and pour 1/4 cup water over the top.
  • Bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes.
  • If it appears to be too dry during baking, add 1/4 cup more water carefully, because the zucchini and potatoes will also release water during baking.
  • Allow them to cool for about 15 minutes before cutting into.
