Spanakopita is a wonderful Greek recipe of crisp phyllo/filo pasty with a creamy spinach and feta filling. Unfortunately this dish isn’t that healthy and also isn’t gluten free friendly so I decided to work on an alternative that I was able to eat and this was the result!

It obviously isn’t exactly the same as a crisp spanakopita pastries, but it retains the essence and is delicious in it’s own right. It’s great served for lunch with some salad but also works as breakfast or a light supper. Very versatile.

Enjoy!

Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2
 
Ingredients
  • 12 egg whites or 6 whole eggs
  • 80g feta cheese
  • 100g spinach (fresh or frozen)
  • A small bunch of parsley
  • A pinch of ground nutmeg
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • A little oil
Instructions
  1. If the spinach is fresh chop it finely if it's frozen make sure it's defrosted. Also finely chop the parsley.
  2. Roughly beat the eggs
  3. Crumble the feta into the eggs, add the spinach, nutmeg and black pepper (you probably won't need salt as feta is quite salty) and stir well.
  4. In a non-stick pan heat a little oil. Once the pan is hot pour in the egg mixture and turn the heat down low.
  5. Eggs like to be cooked slowly so keep the heat low and keep an eye on the omelette so the bottom doesn't burn
  6. Once the egg is almost cooked through the pan under a hot grill to finish off cooking the top
