Our students’ path to Greekness

Our students' path to Greekness

We are very proud of our student Haw Yan for making the best greek spinach pie for her very first time – as you can you from the picture! A few days ago our student & friend Haw Yan asked for a spinach pie recipe and since it was her first time Stella decided to give her her  mom’s  recipe without a home made phyllo -just to make it easier.  Below we have pased the original email sent to her. Have a look at the recipe and give it a try as well!!!

Hi friend!!!
Ready for your spinach pie??? Take phyllo ready, you need one-to-one workshop to show you how to make your own phyllo!!!!

For the filling

  1. 1⁄4 cup olive oil
  2. 500g spinach: cleaned, tough stems removed
  3. 2 leeks: white and tender part of green, cleaned, sliced in 1/4 inch lengths (if very large, slice leek in half lengthwise before slicing)
  4. 6 spring onions: cleaned, sliced in small pieces
  5. 3/4 cup fresh dill, minced
  6. 3/4 cup fresh persley

  3. now mix altogether  to combine well.

Step 2. Lightly oil (always use olive oil!) a 12 inch in diameter, metal baking pan (you can use a larger baking pan – you will just have a thinner pita, but don’t use a smaller one), or a 10 x 15 inch rectangular baking pan.
