Spiral Spinach and Feta Pie (Spanakopita).
Chris is Greek, so I taught myself to make many of his fav dishes. Most I don't eat because they have meat in them...this one I LOVE!
400 g spinach, cooked, drained and chopped
150 g feta, crumbled
½ cup tasty cheese
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
¼ tsp nutmeg
1 knob butter, melted for brushing
5 pieces filo pastry
Tzatziki to serve
Set oven to 200C. Grease the base of a 23cm cake tin (line it if it’s springform) or an ovenproof frying pan generously with butter.
In a medium-size bowl place the spinach, feta, tasty cheese, Parmesan, nutmeg, egg and freshly ground pepper. Combine well.
Lay a sheet of filo on a clean bench and cut in half lengthways. Place one sheet on top of the other. Brush one piece of filo with butter. Spread some filling evenly on the long side, then roll. Fold it into a snail shape and place in the middle of the tin. Continue with the next one, adding it to the tin until it is completely full, looking like one big spiral. Brush with a little more butter. This helps create the crispness. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until crispy and golden.
Serve hot with a side salad, tzatziki and bread for lunch.
