Easy and Tasty Spinach Pie Recipes

Spinach pies are perhaps the most popular of all Greek pie recipes. Every Greek restaurant in the world will probably have a spinach pie recipe or two in its repertoire.

The thing is however, that you don’t necessarily have to go to a Greek restaurant to enjoy fresh and tasty Greek spinach pie. You can make your own as long as you have the right ingredients and of course a good Greek spinach pie recipe.

The two basic ingredients you will need to make a spinach pie is the filling and the phyllo or phyllo dough. There are countless variations of both the phyllo and filling. What will follow is two variations of Greek spinach pie, one regular with cheese and eggs and a vegan recipe. Both recipes are absolutely delicious and healthy.

For the first spinach pie, the regular one, you will need a series of ingredients. To make this Greek pie you will need to use ready made phyllo that can be bought from your local grocery store.

You will need a total of 10 phyllo pieces, 5 for the top, and 5 for the bottom of the pie. For the filling you will need 1 kg of spinach, 10 eggs, half a kg of feta pieces, 4 tablespoons of butter, some oil, dill, 10 fresh onions, pepper and salt.

The first thing you will need to do to make this pie is to wash the spinach well and then chop it up. Then, slightly salt it because you will be adding the feat cheese later which contains salt. Add the spinach after you drain it well as well as the chopped dill and onions.

Beat the eggs and add them with the spinach as well as the ground cheese and pepper. Mix everything really well. Oil up the pan, and place the first 5 phyllo pieces in it, while making sure that they are not completely stretched out in the pan. Use oil to brush the phyllo pieces one after the other.

Then, add the filling and spread it out evenly. Afterwards, place the remaining 5 phyllo pieces while oiling them all in between. When all the phyllo pieces have been used, roll up their edges around the pan in a spiral manner.

Sprinkle some water on the top of the pie, so that the top phyllo pieces do not burn while cooking, and then add the melted butter. Cook in a medially heated oven.

For the second spinach pie recipe you will also need phyllo and 10 phyllo pieces in particular. You will need less ingredients for the filling because this contains no animal products. The ingredients are: 2kg of spinach, 4-5 dry onions (finely chopped), dill, olive oil, 1 cup of rice, salt and pepper.

Wash the spinach well and then chop it up. Then, slightly salt the spinach and drain it well. Add the chopped up dill and onions with the spinach as well as the pepper. Mix everything well. Oil up the pan, and place the first 5 phyllo pieces in it, while making sure that they are not completely stretched out in the pan.

The phyllo pieces should be homemade and oiled in between one another. Then, add the filling and spread it out evenly. Afterwards, place the remaining 5 phyllo pieces while oiling them all in between. When all the phyllo pieces have been used, roll up their edges around the pan in a spiral manner. Sprinkle some water on the top of the pie, so that the top phyllo pieces do not burn while cooking.
