Sfougato Santorini souffle, Mediterranean Diet, Santorini recipe,


  • 1 kg small zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 kg onions, cut into fine frame
  • 4 tsp. ^eleon^ extra virgin olive oil   $ + a little more for the pan
  • flour for baking
  • 10 eggs
  • 3 tsp.  fresh rosemary leaves, chopped, or 1 cup. spearmint tea leaves or dill, chopped
  • 300g. xinomyzithra or other sour milk cheese (ideally from the Cyclades) or soft feta
  • 100g. Naxos sweet gruyere, grated
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp.  sweet paprika (or half-half with a smoker)
  • 1 tspsesame seeds, toasted in a nonstick skillet until lightly browned (no oil or other fat)


  1. Place the zucchini in a colander, salt them lightly and set aside to "act" salt and eliminate many fluids.
  2. In a large heavy-bottomed pan or a shallow pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat, put the onions, salt them lightly and saute for 5-6 minutes until just wilted and sweeten. Pull the pan from the heat and leave to cool.
  3. Preheat oven to 160 ° C. Grease a baking pan diameter 22 cm., Sprinkle with flour and shake the pan to drop the excess flour (if you do not put flour will not do crust bottom and will stay white and a soft sfougato).
  4. In a large bowl add the zucchini as the slightly squeeze handfuls to us. Add the sautéed onions and paprika, stir well, add the spice that we chose and gruyere and mix well again. Beat eggs well until they reach a light shade and fluffy (preferably in the mixer with the wire or with a hand mixer). So the sfougato will become fluffy. 
  5. Immediately pour the beaten eggs to zucchini-onion mixture and mix carefully - do not want to 'sit' eggs. Finally, add the sour milk cheese or feta, shredded into small pieces by hand. Mix again very gently - do not want the mixture to homogenize and become like mud. Pour the mixture into the pan and lay the surface with a spatula so that it has everywhere the same thickness and cook evenly. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and bake for 25-35 minutes, until thickened egg and browned surface of sfougato.
  6. Leave the oven door ajar for 15 minutes before pushing the sfougato to "stand up" a bit.   
  7. Serve with yogurt, tomato and salad, if desired, with smoked salmon or trout. The sfougato eaten cold.
