Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1kg spinach leaves, finely chopped
12 green onions, chopped
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
4 eggs, beaten
250g feta cheese, crumbled
250g cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
freshly ground black pepper
20 sheets filo pastry

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a 33 cm x 23 cm baking dish.
  2. Combine the spinach, green onions and parsley in a large bowl.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil and gently fry the onion until soft. Add to the spinach mixture with the eggs, feta and cheddar cheeses, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Add pepper to taste and mix well.
  4. Stack the filo sheets between two dry tea towels with a dampened towel on top. Lightly brush one sheet of filo pastry with oil and place in the prepared baking dish.
  5. Repeat until ten sheets of filo have been used, brushing each with oil.
  6. Spread the spinach mixture over the filo. Cover with the remaining sheets of filo, brushing each with oil. Sprinkle water over the top sheet of filo. Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Using a sharp knife, cut into diamond shapes for serving.
