I found this same recipe in Madhur Jaffrey's 'World Vegetarian' cookbook. She notes that the dish comes from the Ormylia Monestary in Macedonia and is of Greek origin. A nice addition to any sandwhich or wrap or a tasy dip with chips. This would make a great party platter served alongside hummus and baba ghanouj.
