spanakoprasopita

Tonight I will be making a spinach-leek pie using phyllo pastry.

Rough recipe for filling follows, kids.

good amount of baby spinach, washed and chopped
1 big-ass leek, sliced into 1/4 inch pieces and sauteed in olive oil
2 spring onions, chopped
crumbled feta cheese
salt and pepper
2 eggs
some olive oil (extra virgin, of course)

Oh and yes, some dill!!!!! Half your sheets on the bottom of pan (each brushed with a mix of butter/olive oil), filling, other half of sheets on top. Bake at 350 F until golden brown top. Voila. In the meantime, disappointing news on Greece's ranking as far as countries with largest gaps between the rich and poor.

hey guys, tonight is spanaki aaaaaaaand rice. i won't do the spanakorizo as we typically do it (much more spinach, some white/brown rice). I'll do a proper risotto but with the spanakorizo flavours.

And of course feta cheese on top!
