  • 1 bag of fresh baby spinach, stems removed
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup, extra smooth ricotta
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh dill
  • 1 cup crumbled Feta
  • 1/8 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 450g pkg of all butter, puff pastry (2 rolls), thawed
  • 1 egg

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove middle rack, making sure one rack is in the top third of the oven and one in the bottom third. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Boil a large pot of water and add the spinach, cooking until wilted (60 seconds). Drain and rinse under cold water. Place in a tea towel and wring out excess liquid. Chop the spinach.

Heat a frypan and add the onion and garlic, cooking until the onion is lightly brown. Add the spinach and ricotta and reduce the heat. Cook until all liquid has evaporated. Remove from the heat, add the dill, 1/2 cup Feta and nutmeg. Set aside.

Unroll the pastry onto the cookie sheets. Use a sharp knife to score a 1/2 inch border around each pastry sheet. Then dock the pastry all over with a fork. Beat the egg in a small bowl and brush evenly over the pastry.

Bake in the oven, switching the pans around halfway through baking time (about 14-15 minutes) until lightly golden in colour and puffy.

Remove from the oven, divide the spinach mixture between the two pans and spread out to the scored edges. Sprinkle the remaining feta over the tops and continue baking until the pastry and feta are golden in colour, again switching the pans around halfway through the 12-13 minute baking time. Slice and serve.

OMG! Yummy….
