Spinach Phyllo Triangles
This is unbelievably easy recipe that I haven't made in a long time!
Today I had some fresh spinach and I decided to make "banitsa" for dinner but I wanted it to be different than the usual one I make. So I chose the triangular shape and made a filling from eggs, feta cheese, spinach and butter. I hope you like the pictures, I am trying to learn how to do it properly, not much of a success but a lot better than it was :-)
1 package phyllo dough ( I used Athens)
2 cups grated feta cheese( you can also mash it with a fork if you want)
8 tbsp melted butter
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 package of baby spinach
Preheat the oven at 375 degrees.
Rinse really well the spinach, then cut it in small pieces. In a preheated pan sautee the baby spinach with the vegetable oil.
Add the eggs and feta cheese and stir fry for a couple of minutes ( until all the water is gone and the eggs are getting stiff enough to serve with a spoon).
Cut each phyllo sheet on two long pieces. Brush the long pieces with butter, then add the end of each piece a 1 tablespoon full of spinach mixture. Start folding in triangular shape.
You can see here how it is done.
Place the triangles on a greased cookie sheet or pan and bake until golden in color( around 15-20 minutes).
Serve warm with a piece of cheese, yogurt or milk.
P.S By the way I am starting to prepare the cake for the October cake challenge, wish me luck!
