Original recipe for Greek Spanakopita. Try it!05-02-2016 13:11If you have ever tasted the original Greek spinach pie (=spanakopita), it is sure that you will also desire to cook it yourself. So here is a typical recipe for the famous Greek delicacy...
Keep in mind: Except for spinach, spanakopita can also be made with other greens, such as dandelion or chard. You can use 1 lb. frozen chopped spinach instead of fresh. Thaw the spinach overnight or in a colander under warm running water. Squeeze out the liquid and skip the pan-wilting step.
For the filling:
- 2 lb. fresh spinach, washed, dried, trimmed, and coarsely chopped
- 3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 bunch scallions (about 3 oz. or 10 small), white and light-green parts only, trimmed and finely chopped
- 2 cups crumbled feta cheese (10 oz.)
- 1/2 cup finely grated Greek kefalotyri cheese or Parmigiano-Reggiano
- 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh dill
- 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
- 1/4 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
- Kosher or fine sea salt
For the assembly:
- 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil for brushing; more as needed
- Eighteen 9x14-inch sheets frozen phyllo dough (I use Athens brand), thawed and at room temperature
- 2 tsp. whole milk
