Spanakopita


There is no better food for me then the food from my homeland, the flavours I grow up with.
Buttery pastry mixed up with spinach and cheese, accomplished by yogurt and cucumber and salty olives.... and there is a ouzo drink as well....
 











you will need:

270 gr filo pastry, I've got 7 sheets 
300 gr spinach 
100 gr feta cheese
100 gr cottage cheese
2 eggs
1 spring onion 
40 gr butter, melted
pepper
sesame seeds

Wash and chop the spinach.
In a cooking pot drop 2 Tbsp hot water, add the spinach and stir until the spinach is wilted.
Cool it down and squeeze off any liquid before you mix it with cheeses + eggs + spring onion and pepper. You wont need salt because  the feta cheese is salted enough. 
Now the filling is ready,melt the butter.
 Place the  filo pastry on a clean worktop and cut the sheets on half to get 14 long sheets.
Brush each pastry with some butter and put 1 Tbsp of the filling in the corner of the pastry.
Fold and fold again :) 



until you get triangle shape pastries.
Place them in a large baking tray then
brush them with some more butter and sprinkle sesame seeds.
Bake on 180 C for 25 minutes.

  4. I love Spanakopita and so does my husband, i tend to make it around Summer time but it has been a while. Yours look so dainty and delicate - and wonderfully presented. So Laura are you Greek or Cypriot? I wonder what you will make of my Hilopites and Greek Shepherds Pie recipes that I made quite recently, like to know what you think http://allotment2kitchen.blogspot.co.uk/2017/02/vegetarian-greek-hilopites-pasta-with.html
    Thank you
