We recently had a girl’s lunch and decided to make a Spanakopita Recipe aka Greek Spinach Pie. To say it was a hit is an understatement. It was moist and delicious and perfect with salads.

We included classic potato, sweet pumpkin, beetroot and feta, and a classic Greek Salad on our table. It’s become a definite favorite in our home and it will be in yours too!

The issue for many when it comes to the traditional Spanakopita Recipe is that it can be labor-intensive and require a lot of prepping.

Today we share a version, that whilst you need to adhere to a few golden rules, it is incredibly easy.

The Creator, Dimitra, says it is her Moms recipe and hands-down better than anything she has ever tried. Here are her top recipe tips.

Best Spanakopita Recipe Cooking Tips

Dimitra’s first tip for a top result is don’t pre-cook your ingredients. She also recommends against swapping out ingredients with low-fat substitutes.

She also says you must not remove your Filo from its packaging until the last minute. You should also defrost to room temperature in your fridge.

For the last couple of hours, leave your Filo out but do not remove it from the airtight packaging.

The Baking tray Dimitra used for this Spanakopita Recipe is 18″ x 13″ x 1″. (45 x 33 x2.5cm)
