Spanakopita Recipe

Authentic spanakopita is a Greek appetizer with the filling of spinach and cheese. Along with the crispy texture as well as it is rich from inside. In addition, we add flavor in the form of herbs and aromatics to this key filling of spinach and cheese. Last but not the least I add a pinch of nutmeg to this filling which gives a pleasant aroma and flavor to the spanakopita recipe mixture.

Most importantly, be very careful while making the triangle shape. The stuffing needs to be filled properly and with adequate quantity according to the size of the triangle. It can not only be deep fried but also baked. This is one of the most crispy & rich in flavor Greek appetizer. It is healthy yet so tasty… Ah, what a rare combination of Spinach & Cheese are the fillings in phyllo dough. The crispy texture is so perfect for Tea-Snack time that I would like to call it Spanakopi-Tea-a. Try out this yummy Greek Spanakopita Recipe.
