About this recipe: Tired of plain spinach pie? This recipe uses many different kinds of 'green stuff', mixed with delicious feta cheese, of course! However, it doesn't use filo pastry, which is what you're probably used to seeing with spanakopita. The recipe is a little time consuming, but totally worth it. Serve with yoghurt on the side.
The Batsaria recipe posted is very good. Not only is it good, the first day but even better the second. And the crust fuses nicely with the other ingredients. Thank you for posting, I would recommend. It will be a regular in my oven. Always looking for good recipes and this one was over the top. - 10 Sep 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was just delicious! I'm not very familiar with Greek cuisine at all, but I liked the combination of leeks and spinach in this, and also that it was not too "eggy". The crust was very good, and the only changes I made was that I could not find fresh dill, so I used a heaping teaspoon of dried, and I only had about half the recommended amount of parmesan (all I had left on hand). It was very good the first day, and even better the next! Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipe, Gracey! - 13 Sep 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The filling is pretty good, a little too wet for our taste but we enjoyed it nonetheless (will strain it much more next time). We didn't care for the dough part of the pie; I would definitely use phyllo next time. The changes... Two large leeks, three green onions, half a red onion, a bit of mint and basil for the spearmint. I used a Bulgarian feta, which wasn't as salty as the Greek variety can be so the salt factor was lacking in the final product. I still prefer traditional spanakopita though. - 27 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
