Spinach and Feta Filo Pie

Some recipes are for special occasions and come about after weeks of thought and planning. Some are repeated over and over again with minute tweaks each time to get it just right. Some are things people have wanted to make for ages, are inspired by a person, place or memory. Some come about when you are stuck on something savoury to make and type the very vague term ‘pie’ into BBC Good Food’s search engine… Today’s recipe would be the latter!DSCF9406But lack of planning or forethought does not mean lack of success. (Although it may mean lack of photo of whole pie due to it being eaten very quickly….)  This was super simple and I’ve made it several times now during the week – it’s so quick and the filling ingredients are all fairly store-cupboard regulars in my family. It might become my signature savoury dish at this rate! The buttery pastry and salty cheese makes the iron rich, super healthy spinach filling seem a little bit more indulgent and despite the hefty amount of veg you still find yourself going back for more. I also like that this can be easily adapted – I used frozen instead of fresh spinach and more pastry than suggested to get more layers but you could go further – one of the commenters on the website says they added chorizo and chicken which could be good if you’re cooking for a true meat eater! You can find the recipe here – enjoy :)DSCF9408

Looks delicious! I love visiting the BBC site for recipes. I also get all of their magazines on my iPad and load up on British mags whenever I am in England. Love, love, love their publications.

Thanks for sharing the recipe!

filo and feta is always a winning combo for me - lovely the taste and the crunch.
