Description

Broad bean pie a.k.a Koukopita in Corfu (Kouko) comes from the word koukia, which are the beans and of course pita is pie therefore koukopita. By now you should have a small list with all the greek food words that I have given you. Broad bean are also called fava beans and it's an ancient legume consomed by the ancient Greeks and Romans. A very nutritious vegetable high in protein and in fiber. This a traditional recipe from my husband's village Zygos located in the northern part of Corfu Island in Greece. A recipe that was given to me by my Aunt Voula who is a specialist when it comes to baking pies. This a no phyllo/crust pie and very simple to make.
