This Olga’s Spinach Pie has to be my family’s favorite dinner Recipe. However, this dish has to be served on a special occasion as it takes time to prepare and cook. Therefore, it is usually served at Christmas to make the day extra special.
This Recipe is not just fancy and delicious but extremely healthy and nutritious. The star ingredient of this recipe“Spinach” is often known as an energy booster, rich in Vitamins, Iron, Fiber, Anti-Oxidants, and Magnesium. Meanwhile, Cheese is considered to be rich in Calcium, Proteins, and Fat.
This Spinach Pie is a Savory Greek pie made with Feta Cheese, Phyllo Dough, and Spinach. To make this recipe time-efficient, you can use frozen Spinach rather than Fresh Spinach. Additionally, if you want to keep it pocket-friendly, you can use Cottage Cheese rather than Feta. The result is fast and very delicious.
So, let’s explore this delicacy-powerhouse in detail
Olga’s Spinach Pie Recipe
- 4 tbsp Olive oil. Extra Virgin
- 10 oz Spinach. Frozen, Washed, and Drained
- 2½ cup Scallions. Thin-sliced
- 4 cloves Garlic. Minced
- ½ cup Dill. Chopped
- Salt. To taste
- Ground Pepper. To taste
- 4 oz Greek Feta Cheese. Chopped, Crumbled
- 3 Eggs.
- 1 pound Ricotta Cheese.
- 10 Sheets Phyllo Dough. Thawed
- 1 pound Butter. Unsalted
- Preheat the oven to 350 F.
- Use a medium-sized pan, heat the olive oil in the pan, and add spinach. Sauté the spinach till it gets a little soft for about 2 minutes. Spinach leaves the water, so squeeze the excess water out. Repeat the same procedure with the remaining spinach, add oil if required.
- Heat 2 tbsp. olive oil and add scallions and garlic to the pan, sauté them for about3-4 minutes. Keep it aside till it cools down.
- Once the scallion and garlic are sauteed properly, add salt and pepper for the seasoning of the mixture. Mix them properly.
- Use a separate bowl, mix feta, ricotta, and eggs. Mix well.
- Now you must combine spinach with the cheese mixture, blend well.
- Grease the phyllo sheet dough with un-salted butter.
- Use another phyllo sheet dough and brush it with unsalted butter. Lengthwise, fold the phyllo in half. At the lower bottom of the sheet, put ½ cup of the cheese and spinach mixture. To enclose the fillings, the corner of the phyllo needs to be folded to form a triangle. Continue to fold; just make sure to maintain the triangular shape.
- Put the triangle-shaped pie on the baking sheet, brush the top with butter. Then, try and similarly make more triangles using phyllo.
- Bake them in the oven for 35-45 minutes till they are properly cooked. Set them aside on the plate till they are cool.
- While you are working with phyllo, you need to be careful as it dries out. Therefore, you need to cover the phyllo stack with 2 overlapping plastic sheets along with dampened kitchen towel. Keep the extra phyllo covered so that it does not dry out.
