zesty spinach and feta pies ~ my version of spanakopita

zesty spinach and feta pies ~ my version of spanakopita

I’m excited that I over the next few months I will be developing a few recipes using Mediterranean Delicacies products for Drizzle and Dip.  I absolutely adore their range which is vast and includes everything from ready made dips and pates, to seafood, cheese and pickles.

This is my take on a classic Greek Spanakopita. I have left out the egg and used only the Mediterranean Delicacies Danish Feta which is creamy and delicious. I use olive oil instead of melted butter to brush down the phyllo and it works just as well.  You could use melted butter instead.  I also add lemon zest and juice and find it adds a lovely zing which wakes these up a bit.

Ingredients

  • 1 pack of Mediterranean Delicacies Phyllo Pastry (you will only use 6 - 9 sheets)
  • 400 gms spinach (I used baby spinach leaves)
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 3 - 4 spring onions finely sliced
  • 1 Tbs of chopped dill
  • 1 Tbs of chopped parsley
  • pinch of freshly grated nutmeg (about 1/4 tsp)
  • zest of a 1/4 of a lemon
  • juice of a 1/4 of a lemon (or a big squeeze)
  • 120gms of feta cheese
  • salt and black pepper
  • olive oil for brushing (you need quite a bit)
