This spinach pie recipe is similar to spanakopita, which is a filo pastry stuffed with spinach and feta. If you are looking for easy pie recipes, this spinach pie is much easier than sweet fruit pies or savory meat pies. This dish doesn’t require making any pastry since phyllo can be readily purchased at the grocery store. Filo pastry is paper thin and delicate. It also dries out very easily, which is why it needs to be covered with a damp cloth or paper towel when it isn’t being used. Phyllo has been used for centuries and can be traced back to the Ottoman Empire of the thirteenth century. In fact, the first known recipe including phyllo is likely baklava, which is a dessert layered with nuts and honey. This phyllo dish is ideal for those looking for healthy spinach recipes since it includes a pound of spinach. Spinach nutrition includes very high amounts of an abundance of nutrients, like vitamin C, A, potassium, iron, and calcium.
