A delicious, creamy cheese spread from Greece. It is usually served as part of a mezze platter but it can also be enjoyed by itself, with slices of warm bread.
Serves: 1 jar Preparation time: 10m Cooks in: 5m Ready in: 15m
1 Florina pepper or any sweet pepper
1 -2 chili peppers (depending on how spicy you want the spread to be)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
250 gr. anthotyro, a traditional fresh cheese
250 gr. crumbled feta cheese
A pinch of sweet paprika
Remove the seeds from the Florina pepper and the chili peppers and finely chop them.
Heat the olive oil over medium heat and saute until tender.
Place the anthotyro cheese and crumbled feta cheese in a blender. Add the sautéed peppers with the oil from the pan and the paprika and process the ingredients until you get a smooth and homogeneous mixture.
Keep the cheese spread refrigerated in a glass jar, pouring a little oil on the surface from time to time.
