Orange Pie with Krokos Kozanis (Greek Saffron)

A few days ago, I enjoyed a lovely dinner at BARABICU restaurant, invited by Krokos Kozanis, the Greek saffron. Among other interesting parts of the presentation that preceded the dinner, the famous chef Rena of Ftelia shared with us her recipe for a delicious, yet easy orange pie. Of course, Krokos Kozanis, the Greek saffron, gives to the recipe a special aroma and taste.

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup of Greek yogurt
  • 4 eggs

Cut the crust leaves into long strips (like noodles) and add them to the mixture. Stir, add the baking powder and leave the mixture for 10 minutes.
