3 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, finely diced
500 grams frozen spinach, thawed, drained, chopped and squeezed dry
1 teaspoon salt
100 grams feta cheese, crumbled
125 grams cottage cheese
1 egg, whisked
1 packet gluten free filo pastry (or you can refer to the recipe I used previously for vegetarian quiche)
280 grams butter, melted
The Bondi Baker Method
Step 1- Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and slowly cook and stir 5 minutes or until tender. Add spinach and salt then make sure all liquid has evaporated from spinach. Stir in feta, cottage cheese and egg. Cook and stir until thickened which is about 5 to 10 minutes. Reduce heat to simmer.
Step 2- Preheat oven to 170 degrees.
Step 3- Unroll filo pastry sheets on a flat surface. Keep a damp tea towel over the sheets while you work. Lay out a sheet on a clean work surface and brush with unsalted butter. Cut into strips approximately 12cm wide and layer the strips one on top of another so that you have a strip that is 3 sheets thick.
Step 4- Place 1 tablespoon of the onion, spinach and feta mixture at one end of the filo pastry strip. Fold the end of the strip over the filling so that it forms a triangle. Continue folding the strip in triangles until a small, triangular stuffed pastry remains. Brush with butter. Repeat with remaining filo until you have used all of the filling.
Step 5- Arrange stuffed triangles on a large baking tray. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until crisp and golden brown. Serve hot or cold and with a scrumptious salad.
