Vegan Spanakopita


There really aren’t too many things better then a pastry. You could really make anything with phyllo; something, sweet something salty, something oozing with the goodness of vegan cheese; you decide!

Today I decided on Spinach; that delicious green leaf that left most of you with a scrunched up look on your face when your parents would just mention it. Never fear! The Greeks have given us yet another gift; this fluffy, cheesy, green deliciousness. This is the simplest recipe, just a few ingredients and your patience are needed.

  • […] There is a hidden mystery in this spinach pie that makes it so delicious, and that lies in the three kinds of onion the Greeks put in the making, red and spring onion and leek. The high quality olive oil and feta cheese Greek offers makes it impossible to copy the recipe outside Greece. Entering a bakery in Greece is always difficult as you can never choose what you prefer eating, so you always end up picking up more than few peaces. via […]
