Spanakopita - Popular Greek Spinach Pie
This popular Greek dish takes only minutes to prepare!
– Phyllo dough – Olive oil – Onion – Frozen spinach – Garlic – Feta cheese – Greek seasoning – Nutmeg – Salt – Melted butter
INGREDIENTS for Spanakopita
If using frozen spinach, make sure that you drain out all excess liquid from your spinach
Cook the spinach and onion until heated through. Allow the mixture to cool then combine the vegetables with garlic, cottage cheese, crumbled feta cheese, nutmeg, salt, and pepper stirring to combine.
You will use two sheets of dough at a time and butter them excessively. Butter will not only yield a crisp, buttery dough, but it will keep the dough soft and moist.
Rotate each pair of phyllo dough in a clockwise manner until all sheets of dough have been used up.
When all the sheets of dough have been used, place the spinach mixture in the center of the dough.
Bake the savory pie in a 400-degree oven for about 25 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
