  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen phyllo pastry sheets, thawed
  • 1 pound fresh spinach, washed and chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil, for brushing


Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
In a large skillet, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic, and sauté until softened and fragrant.
Add the chopped spinach to the skillet and cook until wilted. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
In a mixing bowl, combine the cooked spinach mixture, crumbled feta cheese, chopped dill, chopped parsley, ground nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine.
Lay one sheet of phyllo pastry on a clean surface and brush it lightly with olive oil. Place another sheet on top and repeat the process until you have 6 layers.
Spoon a portion of the spinach and feta mixture along one edge of the layered phyllo pastry, leaving a small border.
Carefully roll the phyllo pastry, enclosing the filling, into a tight log or triangle shape.
Repeat steps 5-7 with the remaining phyllo sheets and filling.
Place the prepared spanakopita on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the tops with olive oil.
Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the spanakopita is golden brown and crisp.
Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
