It's the very famous, traditional spinach pie that everybody loves to taste!  Not one of the easiest recipes but it's really worth it...

Ingredients: 

Dough for pastry sheet (fyllo)

500 gr. flour
1 small cup (coffee cup) of olive oil
2 tablespoons of vinegar
1 teacup of warm water
½ teaspoon of salt


Filling

1 kilo clean spinach
300gr. spring onions, chopped
1 bunch of parsley,chopped
1 bunch of dill,chopped
2 eggs beaten
250gr. feta cheese, crumbled
1 ½ teacups of olive oil
salt, pepper
 

Put the flour into a small basin and make a small hole with your fingers in the middle. Add in there olive oil, vinegar, salt and water. Mix well the ingredients for the dough until smooth. Divide dough into 2 equal portions and shape into balls (one for each pastry sheet, up and down). Spread the dough and make a pastry sheet using a rolling pin.

Wash the spinach and chop it finely. Put in a big saucepan without water and scald. Add ½ teaspoon salt. Squeeze it well with hands. Drain and discard the water. Add spring onions, parsley, dill, eggs, feta cheese, pepper and ½ cup of olive oil. Mix all the ingredients up to well combined. Pour ½ teacup of olive oil in the baking pan and spread the first pastry sheet. Add the filling mixture and spread the second pastry sheet on the top. Cut gently with a knife in small square pieces and pour ½ teacup of olive oil all over the pie. Bake the spinach pie in the oven, 200ο C/400F  for 45 - 60 minutes. Serve either hot or cold. Makes about 24 pieces.
