Spanakopita

This is a great vegetarian dinner, I used this recipe for my Spanakopita on my Greek evening, and it was delicious! I find that reheating phyllo doesn’t work very well, but if you want to, place in an oven to reheat, not in the microwave.

Ingredients

dill
dried oregano
phyllo pastry
melted butter
onion, chopped
olive oil
spinach, rinsed and trimmed
feta cheese
full cream cream cheese
eggs, lightly whisked
salt and pepper to taste

Fry the onions in oil, until the onions become transparent
Blanch the spinach in boiling water, until the leaves turn lighter, remove from water and drain all excess water, chop finely (squeeze out all excess water again)
Add the fried onions, the feta and cream cheese, eggs, dill, oregano, and salt and pepper to taste
Grease the bottom and sides of oven pan
Line oven pan with a sheet of phyllo pastry.
Brush with the melted butter and place another half sheet of phyllo pastry on top. Repeat until you have five half sheets of phyllo pastry.
Spread the spinach mixture on top and cover with seven layers of phyllo pastry, each brushed with melted butter or olive oil, including the top of the last layer.
Bake at 190 °C for about 40 minutes or until light brown

Enjoy it
