Do we love Spinach Pies! We can eat it morning, noon and night. Here is Helen Chin Lui’s version. This recipe can be doubled for a large crowd.
Prep time 30 minutes
Cooking time: 40 minutes at 350 degrees
Spinach mixture (made in two parts)
In a skillet with 2 tablespoons of oil sauteed until lightly brown
1 bunch scallion, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
Cool completely before adding to cheese mixture. Set aside
Add the following ingredients in a large mixing bowl –
1 lb of fresh or 2 boxes of thawed out frozen, chopped spinach, squeezed all extra water but don’t over-squeezed; otherwise, the mixture will be too dry.
1 lb each crumbled feta
1 lb (small container) ricotta cheese, I used skim ricotta
1/3 cup of Parmesan cheese
2 large eggs
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
Juice of 1/2 fresh lemon,
1 teaspoon hot sauce (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Line baking pan – Line the bottom of the pan (either 8×8 or 9×9) with 5 sheets of Phyllo dough, brush each layer with oil (I use olive oil.) Fold edges over. Spread spinach mixture eventually to all edges. Top with another 5 layers of Phyllo, again, brush each layer with oil including the top layer.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 mins. Until golden brown.
Note: 1 box phyllo dough makes 2 big spinach pies or 3 small ones. To prevent drying out the dough, wrap unused dough in plastic and put in refrigerator or freezer.
