Our lovely Chef; Thomas Ntinas, has prepared an extra special recipe for you this Halloween! Halloween Witches Nests! If you want to go for something a little different this year, inspired by Greece, this is the recipe for you!
Preparation time: 1hr
Serves: 15 individual nests
1 pack kataifi fillo (500g)
1 pumpkin (approximately 700g)
200g feta cheese
Pill, deseed and grate the pumpkin, finely chop the onions and crumble the feta cheese.
In a frying pan fry the onion in a bit of olive oil. Once soft, add the grated pumpkin, sage, salt and pepper. Let it cook for about 10mins, stirring occasionally. Towards the end add the feta cheese.
In a separate frying pan roast the pumpkin seeds and put them on the side.
Pull the kataifi apart with your hands and coat generously with olive oil. Portion into 15 even bundles. Stretch and flatten them and then carefully fold them with circular movements to create little nests. Place a few spoonfuls of the mix on each kataifi nest and drizzle with a bit of olive oil. Bake in the oven at 170 degrees for about 25 mins or until golden brown.
Once ready, remove them from the oven, allow them to sit for 10 mins before serving and sprinkle on top a few roasted pumpkin seeds.
