Here is the list of ingredients:
8 sheets of filo pastry
150 grams of melted butter
2 tbsp. Tapioca
1 punnet of Greek feta
120 washed cherry tomatoes
A few leaves of fresh oregano

Recipe steps : Thinly slice the onion. In a saute pan, put butter, let it brown, add chopped onion and season with fine salt. Leave to stew until soft and slightly caramelized. Check the seasoning.
Place a 20/22cm diameter pie pan on your work surface, melt the butter and butter the phyllo sheets, then place them in the pie pan, gathered edges up. At the bottom, pour a light layer of tapioca over the whole pie, followed by the onion compote.
