Ingredients

  • 5 phyllo pastry sheets
  • 250 g cow's cheese (or feta cheese)
  • 1 cup frozen spinach, thawned
  • 1 egg
  • 1 spring onion
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup olive oil

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Next, chop the spinach and spring onion finely and add them to the bowl together with the egg and mix well until combined.
  • Add the salt and pepper and mix again until you have a uniform paste.
  • Lay 1 phyllo sheet on the work surface and brush generously with olive oil.
  • Hold it in half, then using a sharp knife cut it into 4 strips.
  • Place a teaspoon of the spinach mixture right at the end of each strip, then fold it into a tringle.
  • Repeat with the remaining phyllo sheets until all the spinach mixture has been used up.
  • Line a baking tray with non-stick parchment paper and bake the triangles at 180 degrees C until golden and crunchy.

Notes

  • If you would  like to see the measurements in cups and ounces, please click on the US CUSTOMARY link.
  • Or, if you really don't want to use phyllo pastry, why not use puff pastry, that should make life easier, just cut it into squares, then add the filling, and fold into a triangle.
  • Spinach can be replaced with kale if you wish, and cow's cheese can be replaced with feta cheese or ricotta. The combo spinach and ricotta has been used in my Spinach and Ricotta Pinwheels and they were so good! What a treat!
