There’s nothing like phyllo to wrap your sweet and savoury bites in exquisite puff pastry. Easy to use, this star ingredient of the holiday season is a great hit with guests, delivering a wow effect every time. Here are three inspiring ideas.



1Spanakopita with spinach and leek

Filling

Olive oil, sufficient amount
2 leeks, white part only, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
17 oz. (500 g) of fresh spinach
Dash ground nutmeg
1 cup (250 ml) crumbled feta cheese
2 eggs, lightly beaten
Pepper to taste*

Pastry

5 sheets phyllo pastry
1/3 cup (80 ml) melted butter

Preparation

  • Heat the olive oil over medium heat and cook the leek and garlic without browning. Add the spinach and nutmeg and cook for another five minutes.
  • In a bowl, mix the feta and eggs, then add the mixture to the spinach. Season generously with pepper.
  • In a buttered pie pan, spread out the first sheet of phyllo, allowing the excess to hang over the pan. Over top, place four more sheets lightly brushed with butter. Place the filling in the middle and fold the pastry toward the centre of the pan. Top it off with a little melted butter before putting in the oven at 350° F (180° C) for 45 minutes.
