Hola, all!

I am here again to make your weekend a tasty one. Today, we’ll learn to make Spinach & Ricotta Filo Pie which is a perfect recipe for your weekend brunch.

So, let’s start right away!

Serves: 4 hungry people (LAWL!)

Things you’ll need:

Spinach – 1 bunch

Onion – 1 medium pc

Garlic – 3 cloves

Ricotta – 200 gm

Cheese (parmesan) – ½ cup

Lemon zest – 1 pc

Lemon juice – ½ pc

Filo pastry – 1 rectangle packet

Eggs – 2 pcs

Salt – as required

Pepper – as required

Thyme (dried) – 1 tsp

Oregano (dried) – 1tsp

Sesame seeds (white & black) – handful

Olive oil – 1 cup

Here’s what you gotta do to convert these things into the lip-smacking Spinach & Ricotta Filo Pie

  1. Preheat oven to 170 ° Mix ricotta and eggs with salt, pepper, oregano, thyme, lemon zest and lemon juice, set aside.
  2. Blanch spinach, squeeze out extra liquid with your hands and dab with a tea towel to take out any extra moisture. Chop finely and set aside.
  3. Sweat onions and garlic until soft and translucent. Add chopped spinach and sprinkle over a little thyme. Add a little olive oil and season. Take off the heat.
  4. Line the tin with olive oil and baking paper. Add one sheet of filo pastry and brush with olive oil, add three more layers, repeating the process between each layer.
  5. Add the ricotta mixture and spread evenly. Add the spinach mixture on top and layer with another 6 sheets of filo pastry brushing with olive oil between each layer again.
  6. Add the cheese and cover with the remaining filo sheets brushing with olive oil between each layer.
  7. Brush the top with olive oil and sprinkle over sesame seeds. Turn the oven down to 160 °C and bake for 40-45 mins until golden brown.
  8. Serve warm with a side salad.
