Ingredients/ Συστατικά
  • 3 spring onions, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 kg. spinach, fresh or frozen (thawed)
  • 400 gr. feta cheese
  • Bunch of dill, chopped
  • 2 eggs, divided
  • A handful of cracked wheat
  • Salt, pepper
  • 7 thick phyllo sheets
Instructions/ Εκτέλεση
  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. Oil with olive oil a pan 32cmX41cm.
  3. In a skillet put couple of tbsp of olive oil and in medium-high heat sauté the two types of onion.
  4. Add the spinach. If you use frozen just let it thaw and add it. If you use fresh, wash it and add it to the skillet.
  5. Sauté until the spinach reduces its volume and then add the dill.
  6. Sauté for couple of minutes more.
  7. Remove the skillet from fire and add carefully the egg so as not to be baked.
  8. Add the feta, the cracked wheat, salt and pepper.
  9. Mix until everything is incorporated.
  10. Now take the oiled pan.
  11. Put one phyllo sheet, oil it.
  12. Put above it second sheet oil it as well. Do that for four sheets.
  13. In the last one you do not oil since you will add the filling.
  14. After you have laid 4 sheets spread evenly the filling. Above it place the remaining phyllo sheets just like you did before.
  15. Take one egg, whisk slightly and with a brush spread it evenly on top of the last phyllo sheet. In this way the sheet will become shiny.
  16. Put in the oven for about 40 minutes or until golden on top.
  17. Just a note: You can add leeks as well. I didn’t have this time. But you chop them and sauté them with the onions.
