Method

  1. 1 Put the spinach into a large pan. Pour over a couple tbsp water, then cook until just wilted. Tip into a sieve, leave to cool a little, then squeeze out any excess water and roughly chop. Roughly chop the tomatoes and put into a bowl along with the spinach, feta and eggs. Mix well.

  2. Carefully unroll the filo pastry. Cover with some damp sheets of kitchen paper to stop it drying out. Take a sheet of pastry and brush liberally with some of the sundried tomato oil. Drape oil-side down in a 22cm loosebottomed cake tin so that some of the pastry hangs over the side. Brush oil on another piece of pastry and place in the tin, just a little further round. Keep placing the pastry pieces in the tin until you have roughly three layers, then spoon over the filling. Pull the sides into the middle, scrunch up and make sure the filling is covered. Brush with a little more oil.

  3. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Cook the pie for 30 mins until the pastry is crisp and golden brown. Remove from the cake tin, slice into wedges and serve with salad.

I think I used the wrong pastry. It stayed thick and moist. The filling was quiet ok!

Really tasty and easy. I used more filo than the recipe suggested to ensure there was a thick enough layer to seal the pie. This is a very impressive dish to make for friends, highly recommended!

Made this tonight, very tasty and easy. My first time with filo and as I was layering it up I was worried it wouldn't be right but it turned out fine. I meant to add pine nuts but forgot. Followed the recipe basically to the letter and served with a big leafy and tomato salad. My boyfriend loved it and my housemates were picking at it too. Will def be making again with some of the variations people have suggested.

Yum, yum. Made this last night and wow - it was gorgeous! I used the full jar of sun-dried toms. Definitely needs the full jar. I also addes pine nuts and a little extra feta. This was my first time with filo and what a success. I also cooked the Greek lamb with potatoes and olives to accompany this dish. Wow.

This pie is so easy & delicious. I used cheddar cheese, as I can't eat feta & will definately be making it again. We had it with roasted veg, as someone suggested here - lovely

Taking up others' suggestions, I added toasted pine nuts, used only about a tablespoonful of sundried tomatoes, and used olive oil instead of the oil from the tomatoes. I also chopped up a teaspoonful or so of those sliced and marinaded jalapeno peppers you get in jars. I cooked it a little slower than the recipe said, to really crisp it up. It was a total hit, and was lovely both from the oven and the next day. The only thing is that it's so delicious that the idea that these quantities would serve four is a bit on the optimistic side.
