here’s my recipe for Spinach and Feta pie (as tested by John Kenny, Chloe and Si when they stopped with the marimba en route to Marseille)
A few handfuls of washed spinach
1 onion finely chopped
a wee bit of olive oil
200g feta cheese
some wee tomatoes
1 packet filo pastry, thawed
Pre-heat your oven to 180c / gas 4
Grease a tin with olive oil and line it with 4 or 5 sheets of filo pastry, making sure it hangs over the side so you can fold it over the mixture. Leave some sheets to put on the top.
In a pan, fry the chopped onion in the oil. When it’s clear add in the washed spinach and wait for it to wilt. Grate some nutmeg over the mixture and take it off the stove to cool.
In a jug or bowl, beat two eggs and crumble in the feta cheese. Add the capers and season with pepper (remember the feta is already salty) add to the cooled spinach.
Fill the lined tin with the mix and put some halved baby tomatoes on top, cover over with the pastry.
Cook in the oven for 35-40 minutes until brown. This is lovely with potato wedges or salad. Yum!
