Recipe | 4 Ingredient Spanakopita


There used to be this awesome little Greek cafe in the centre of town. It was blue and striped with white and smelt of olive oil and rich chocolate cake. Me and the girls loved this little hide away, every lunch we'd mission from the Sir Martin Evans building down to the arcades. A cheeky spanakopita pie each and a tiny bite of something sweet. How could we not?! I'm yet to find one in Cardiff that's as authentic and delicious but I need to start looking. Maybe Hellenic Eatery? Anyway, we had a massive craving for feta wrapped in gooey, fluffy, puff pastry. So I made some!

  • 100g Spinach
  • 100g Feta cheese
  • 1 Free range egg
  • Roll ready made puff pastry
  1. Remove puff pastry from fridge and allow to warm to room temperature for 10 minutes. Pre-heat oven to 130 Degrees.
  2. Wash and chop spinach into 1cm slices. In a bowl mash the feta with a fork to break up the large block. Add the egg (saving 1 teaspoon aside) to the spinach and feta. Stirring the mixture together well.
  3. Cut squares of 10cm, fill with pastry. Wash over each pastry with the left over egg. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

P.s - You can get all this stuff in LIDL ;)

Leda, the lovely lady that use to stuff us with treats!
