If you prefer savoury, this recipe is definitely a must try. The crispy filo pastry combined with the creamy filling and the salty feta cheese topping is a perfect orchestra of tastes.
The Spanakopita recipe is believed to have been born in Greece over 400 years ago. It is similar to the Turkish dish ispanakli. It is a typical dish all across Greece. This savoury delight consists of a filo pastry filled with spinach and different soft cheeses. This recipe uses curd and a feta topping. It is also made with creamed Spinach to give it more moisture. Most chefs will personalise the recipe by adding their own flare. Be it herbs or cheeses, the smallest of changes in ingredients can have a huge impact on the final result. However, some people do not like spinach and, making a huge pie can be a bit much. This recipe is meant to be made in a 3 by 4 standard muffin tray. That way, you have 12 little pies.
