Spanakopita is traditionally a Greek savory spinach pie, and yes it does mean spinach pie!  It often contains cheese, typically feta, and may be called spanakotiropita.


They are generally made with filo pastry, but to make it simpler I used ready made puff pastry.  Rather than making a whole pie, these are individual serves that can be served as a starter or as an appetizer.  You chose the size you like, simply cut out circles in your put.


I use baby spinach but you could use any spinach you like.  Make sure you buy the real Feta cheese, usually spelt Feta and not Fetta.  Only Feta is the real deal from Greece.  I mixed it with ricotta as I find Feta too powerful.  It needs a good glug of virgin oil in the mix and the addition of lemon zest lifts the freshness.


There’s plenty of greens with spinach, spring onion, and dill so it must be healthy right?  If you prefer filo and have the time to make it then why not, it is more authentic after all.


Serve it with some Greek yogurt on the side, makes a great dip.


Enjoy my version of Spanakopita, or simply call them cheesy puff bites.
