How to Make Spinach and Feta Triangles

by Caitlin Imogen


  • 1 brown onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 bunch of spring onions
  • Big bunch of spinach or silverbeet
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 200g feta cheese
  • 150g ricotta
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper
  • Filo pastry
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Finely chop 1 brown onion

    Step 2

    Crush 2 cloves of garlic

    Step 3

    Finely chop 1 bunch of spring onions

    Step 4

    Sauté the onion, garlic and spring onions in olive oil until soft, about 10 minutes on a medium heat

    Step 5

    Roughly chop the spinach (I've used silverbeet instead)

    Step 6

    Add the spinach (or silverbeet) to the onions and garlic. Put a lid on the pan and cook on a medium heat for about 10 minutes until the spinach (silverbeet) cooks down.

    Step 7

    This is how it will look after about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and let it cool down.

    Step 8

    Add the crumbled feta cheese, ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, egg yolks, nutmeg, pepper and a pinch of salt

    Step 9

    Mix together well.

    Step 10

    Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius

    Step 11

    Melt the butter

    Step 12

    Roll out the filo pasty and cut lengthways about 10cm wide. One sheet at a time brush with melted butter, repeating until about 7 layers thick.

    Step 13

    Place a large tablespoon of the mixture onto one corner of the pastry and fold diagonally over to make a triangle shape.

    Step 14

    This recipe makes enough for about 8 large triangles

    Step 15

    Brush each triangle with melted butter and place on a lined baking tray. Bake for about 25 minutes or until golden on top and pastry is flaky.

    Step 16

    This is how they look 😊
