Ingredients
  • 5 phyllo pastry sheets
  • 250 g cow's cheese (or feta cheese)
  • 1 cup frozen spinach, thawned
  • 1 egg
  • 1 spring onion
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 cup olive oil
Instructions
  1. Break the cow's cheese into big chunks and add them to a bowl. I used Apetina block cheese, which is quite crumbly, so I could just mash it with a fork. Otherwise, just grate the cheese.

  2. Next, chop the spinach and spring onion finely and add them to the bowl together with the egg and mix well until combined.

  3. Add the salt and pepper and mix again until you have a uniform paste.

  4. Lay 1 phyllo sheet on the work surface and brush generously with olive oil.

  5. Hold it in half, then using a sharp knife cut it into 4 strips.

  6. Place a teaspoon of the spinach mixture right at the end of each strip, then fold it into a tringle.
