1 block of firm tofu
1 onion
2 garlic cloves
1/4⁣ cup nutritional ​yeast
1/4 cup parsley
1/4 cup dill
1/4 cup mint
1/2 tsp‍ salt
1/4 tsp ⁤black pepper
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 package of vegan ‍phyllo pastry
1/2 cup olive oil


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Place the crumbled tofu, onion, garlic, ⁣nutritional yeast (if using), parsley, dill, mint, salt, pepper, and nutmeg in a mixing bowl and mix well. Set aside.
  3. Roll out the phyllo pastry and cut it into​ strips that are about⁤ 3 inches wide. (You can adjust the size based on your ‌preferences or the size of your baking dish.)
  4. Brush ‍each strip with olive oil and place a​ spoonful of the tofu mixture at one end of the strip.
  5. Fold the end of the strip over the filling to create a⁤ triangle shape. Continue folding the strip back and forth in a triangular pattern, like you’re folding a ​flag, until⁤ you reach the end of the strip.
  6. Repeat with the remaining pastry and filling‍ until ​you have a tray full of spanakopita triangles.
  7. Brush the ‍tops of the ‍spanakopita with olive oil and place ‌the tray in the preheated oven.
  8. Bake for ‌30-40 minutes, or until the pastry ⁤is golden-brown and crispy.
  9. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before ⁤serving.
