Mizithra cheese is combined with the Three Sisters of Iroquois cooking-beans, corn, and squash. A good Parmesan or Romano cheese may be substituted. And that does not mean the powdered kind. Note a good soy cheese can also be used so I am going to include this in the Vegan option as well as the Vegetarian option. The recipe is listed under The Best of Veggie Life however, this is from my site and I have NO clue where I got it except to say I don't own and have never saw the book.
