  • 12 sheets filo pastry
  • 1 kg fresh spinach
  • 400 g feta
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • Fresh herbs: mint dill, parsley
  • 1 lemon organic
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds black and white


Prepare the spinach filling

  • Wash and dry the spinach. Peel the onion and cut it finely. Chop the garlic cloves.
  • In a large saucepan, brown the onion with a little olive oil until it becomes translucent. Add the garlic, then the spinach. Sauté for 5-10 minutes, while the spinach begins to lose its volume.
  • Pour everything into a colander and squeeze the spinach to remove excess water. Let cool for a few minutes. Meanwhile, remove the leaves from the dill, mint and parsley sprigs. Chop them finely. Cut the feta into small cubes.
  • In a bowl, mix the spinach, dill, mint, parsley, feta. Grate the lemon zest on top and then add the juice of half the lemon. Add the eggs and mix well.

Form the spinakopita

  • Then oil a large ovenproof dish with olive oil. Using a brush, lightly oil the filo leaves, then place 6 filo leaves at the bottom of the dish, distributing them so that about 5-6 centimeters of filo pastry overflows on each side of the dish.
  • Place the spinach filling on the filo leaves. And then cover with 6 other sheets of filo. Close the edges of the dish tightly. Finish by passing a thin layer of olive oil on top of the Spanakopita using a brush. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for 40 minutes at 180 ° C (conventional heat at the start, then fan oven for the last 10 minutes).



You can serve the Spanakopita hot, warm or even cold. I find the Spanakopita goes very well with a tomato salad. It is an ideal dish to prepare in advance and reheat (or not) at the last moment.
