Spanakopita is ​a traditional Greek dish made with spinach and feta cheese, wrapped in filo pastry. This vegan version is just as⁣ delicious, using tofu to replace the feta and ‌plenty of spices for flavour. Serve it with a side ⁢salad or some traditional ​Greek tzatziki for a ‍complete meal.

  7. Repeat the layering process with the rest of the filo pastry, brushing each sheet with olive oil and sprinkling with breadcrumbs.
