Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

2 lbs. fresh spinach leaves
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 cup chopped fresh dill
2 cups finely chopped green onions
1 1/2 tsp. fine Fine Grey Sea Salt
1/4 cup Organic Extra-virgin Olive Oil
3 cups chopped onion
1/4 tsp. coarse ground black pepper
1/2 lb. feta cheese, crumbled (traditionally made from sheeps milk, feta cheese from goat milk is also good)
14 filo leaves (usually sold frozen, thaw thoroughly!)
3/4 cup clarified butter (ghee), melted.


Wash and clean the spinach.

Discard the stems.

Drain & cut the leaves into shreds.

Combine the spinach, parsley, dill, green onions and grey sea salt in a bowl.

Let stand for 15 minutes, then press out all of the liquid.

Heat the extra virgin olive oil in a skillet and saute the 3 cups of chopped onions until soft and transparent.

Add the spinach mixture from step 2 and saute for a few more minutes.

Add the feta cheese and black pepper.

Place each of 7 filo leaves in a buttered 10" x 17" x 2" baking pan, bruhing each leaf with melted clarified butter.

Add the spinach mixture from step 3, spread into a thick layer then add remaining filo leaves, again brushing each leaf with melted clarified butter.

Cut into 3"x 3" pieces with a sharp knife.

Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
