Spinach and feta pair successfully, to prepare this stuffing you need:

  • 400g spinach chopped (you can use it frozen)
  • 150g feta cheese
  • 1 onion diced thinly
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • juice of one lemon
  • salt to taste.

In a pot, cook the onion with olive oil until tender and fragrant. Add spinach and cook with the onion on a medium to low heat, usually i add 1/4 cup of water, it’s enough with the water that spinach releases.

Cook until done about 15 minutes, turn of the heat then add lemon juice and mix. Cut the feta cheese in cubes, add it to the spinach and mix them together until well incorporated. Eventually the cheese will melt. Feta is a salty cheese you might not need to add salt, it’s a matter of taste.

Bring to room temperature before stuffing the puff pastry. This quantity makes around 20 if you are using the puff pastry dough cut in 10×10 cm sheets. Here is a self explanatory step by step picture.
