SPINACH PIE/SPANAKOPITA









GREEK SPINACH PIE/SPANAKOPITA

Greek Recipe Ingredients:

* One pack of very thin 'fílo' pastry (obtained from a specialist deli)
* 1 Kg / 2 lb of spinach, either frozen or fresh
* 1 kg / 2 lb of féta cheese
* 250g / 1/2lb of butter or margarine
* 2 cloves of garlic or garlic power

GREEK RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS
If the spinach is raw, cook and slice thinly. If frozen, defrost. In either case, mix the féta cheese with the spinach to make a mixture, adding the chopped garlic. Spread some butter on an oven tray. Open the fílo package and place each thin pastry (it is as thin as paper) on the tray, buttering each one using a brush. After you have done 8 fílo slices, place the spinach/féta mixture and spread over the entire oven tray, covering the 8 pastry slices. On top of this, place the remaining pastry slices, buttering each one of them as well. Notch the last one creating 2 inch (5 cm) on a side, squares. Place in a medium heat oven and cook till brown.
