I came up with this lower fat version of a favourite classic to keep down the calories! The filo gives a nice pastry hit without the calories of shortcrust. Why not have a single one as a starter or 2 to 3 as a main course with a salad?
I used a non-stick brownie pan which has 12 square 'holes' but you could use a similar pan with round or square holes and adjust the quantities to fit.
Adding small amounts of various finely chopped herbs such as chives and parsley would ring the changes, as would using sumac instead of black pepper.
These were absolutely brilliant....so easy to prepare, tasy and looked fantastic with the filo pastry....shall definitely be making them again, more this time to have cold.. - 15 Jul 2013
