DIRECTIONS

  • Use a medium-sized round baking pan.
  • Brush the baking pan with some of the oil.
  • Start laying the pastry leaves inside.
  • First, lay two leaves, sprinkle or brush with oil, then lay two other leaves, and repeat the procedure until half of the leaves are used.
  • Make sure that they overlap the edges of the pan by about 1 inch.
  • Sprinkle spinach with salt (optional), and mix well by hand.
  • Add the feta cheese, oil, onions, eggs and salt (optional)
  • Spread the mixture over the already laid pastry leaves.
  • Cover the spinach with the rest of the pastry leaves repeating the first-half procedure.
  • Roll the hanging edges of the bottom leaves over the pie (like a pizza crust).
  • Sprinkle top with oil
  • Bake at 350°F for about 45 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Serve hot, accompanied with buttermilk, or beaten yogurt, thinned down in cold water or with chilled stewed prunes.
