These are a quick and easy finger food; filo triangles are filled with a spinach and ricotta then baked in an oven. They have Greek origins as a 'Spanakopita' where feta is used in lieu of ricotta cheese.



Serves: 4 

  • 250g ricotta cheese
  • 250g frozen spinach, thawed
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 200g filo pastry sheets

  2. Mix the ricotta cheese, drained spinach, eggs, basil, salt and pepper.
  3. Lay a filo sheet on a work surface then place a spoonful of the spinach and cheese mixture on it and fold into a triangle. Continue with the remaining ingredients.
  4. Put the triangle in a baking dish and brush with olive oil.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes.
