Spinach Pie?  Where in the world?!

Spinach Pie, also called Spanakopita, has been a staple in Greek cuisine for quite some time. It is most famous in the Epirus region of Greece, though it is, of course, enjoyed largely across the country.

Thaw the Spinach


You want your spinach to be as dry as possible. 


Make the Filling

Layer the Pie



Bake and Enjoy



You can add scallions, mint, other types of cheeses (I’ve seen ricotta used sometimes), etc to customize yours.


Expert Tips

While assembling the pie, put a slightly damp (almost dry)  paper towel over the phyllo dough. This will keep the dough from cracking while assembling.

Expert Tips

When heating up your Spinach pie leftovers, do so in the oven. It will keep the top crispy as opposed to making it soggy in the microwave.
