  • ½ 250g pack filo pastry


  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.

was struggling to find something gorgeous for my veggy sister and her family on visit to uk, went down a storm, have just made with leftover roast chicken and sun dried toms for my 3 meat eating blokes, perfect!

Add toasted pine nuts and a teaspoon of chilli/paprika for more bite

Made this exactly as described and it was very easy and very tasty-went down well with the in laws!! If I made it again would probably use a little less spinach and a bit more feta just to suit my individual taste.

I thought this recipe was a great idea for a vegetarian meal, but it lacked oomph. I don't like to muck around with a recipe when I use it for the first time but next time I will definitely season it well, and maybe even add a pinch of chilli. Think it could benefit from extra feta cheese too. However nice and quick and easy to make.

Really easy to make, tasty and quick. The only issue is not eating it all at once.

Far too much tomato, would make again and probably double the feta and at least half the tomato. Couldn't taste the feta or spinach, just tasted of tomato.

Delicious, like other users I added the toasted pine nuts & a clove of garlic, my carnivore boyfriend loved it & went back for seconds. Will definitely make this again & try other ingredients, just so good & so easy

Excellent pie!

I've made it twice already and I am simply in love with it. It tastes like the spinach pies you get to eat on the sunny beaches of Greece. Easy to make = you just have to chuck in the ingredients, then stick it in the oven and voilà!

really easy to make, husband loved it. wouldn't have it as a main though - i'm too much of a carnivore!
