Greek Spanakopita Pie
18 sprays cooking spray
2 tsp. olive oil
30 oz. chopped frozen spinach (thawed, squeezed to remove excess water)
1 c. onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
8 oz. liquid egg substitute
4 oz. crumbled feta cheese
1 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
1 lb. frozen phyllo dough, thawed according to package directions
Coat a 9×13 baking pan with cooking spray. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add spinach and onion and cook until liquid is absorbed, about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in parsley and nutmeg. Remove from heat and transfer mixture to a large bowl. Add egg substitute, cheeses and salt and pepper; mix well. Lay 1 sheet of phyllo in and up the sides of prepared pan. Coat surface lightly with cooking spray. Top with 7 more sheets of phyllo, coating each layer with cooking spray. Spread spinach mixture over dough and top with 8 more sheets of dough, coating each layer with cooking spray. Roll the overhanging sides of dough into the edges of pan, forming a border. Using a sharp knife, cut into 12 squares, almost through to the bottom, but not quite or the filling will leak. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 375. Bake until crisp and golden, about 45 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting squares all the way through to the bottom.

  1. Thank you so much for the one mile run/walk October challenge! I’m trying to do a one mile walk every day. I’ve missed a few days, but keep trying every day.Thanks again!

  2. Juli Good job making the spanakopita. I’m impressed. Looks so yummy. Nice job Chick pea salad looked good too. Wish I had a piece. I’m Greek and I’ve never made it. I always wait for the holidays when my mother in-law or a family member makes it. Its nice to see you cooking as a family.
