Sweets of ~ Cyprus on Pinterest. Pastitsio or Makaronia tou Fournou. Pastitsio is a dish for those special days when you have the time to prepare it. You need an hour for preparation, but it’s well worth it! Pastitsio - also known as Makaronia tou Fournou (or oven-baked macaroni) – is ideal for parties and picnics as it’s enjoyed both hot and cold. You can make a vegetarian Pastitsio by simply substituting the mincemeat with chopped onions, carrots, courgettes, grated white cabbage and other vegetables. We both remember our mums using the white sauce as well as a béchamel sauce. We have opted for just the white sauce as the taste is still great but it’s easier to make and lighter. For the white sauce: 8 cups milk 8 heaped tbsps corn flour 1 level tsp salt1 egg, lightly beaten1 tbsp finely chopped parsley3 heaped tsps butter 3 tbsps breadcrumbs 3 tbsps grated cheese Macaroni: Grease a shallow baking dish (33 x 38cm). Meat Sauce: Heat the rest of your oil in a large frying pan; add your chopped onion and garlic and cook until soft.

This is a very rich sweet, and therefore not one you will indulge in frequently. I make this once a year – maybe twice, at most. It’s not a weight-loss dessert, it’s not a totally healthful dessert – it is an uplifting, and very flavoursome dessert, to enjoy and lift the spirits. Having tasted the different takes of this from several countries, I have created my own vegan version, spiced up with cinnamon, lemon and other wonderful ingredients. TIP : DO NOT be tempted to eat this warm – it must be fully chilled to appreciate all the taste and flavours – the main reason being that the syrup needs quite a bit of time to soak itself into the nuts between the baklava layers.

Serves 12 medium portions 1 cup of raw pistachio nuts 1 cup roasted pecan nuts ½ cup mixed roasted nuts of your choice a pinch of salt 1 tsp ground cinnamon ¼ tsp clove powder the zest of a lemon (optional) 1½ cups (375 mL) water.
