These little spinach pies are one of my favorite recipes. They are a great lunchbox filler and so healthy to. Try them, the kids like them as well, at least most of the kids I know. Grow your own spinach like I do, I grow at least thirty to fifty plants at a time and freeze if I have surplus. If you sow spinach seeds twice yearly and grow the faster growing ‘perpetual’ spinach (plant spring & summer) as well as the cooler loving, slower growing varieties (plant late summer & autumn).
2 cups tender fresh spinach leaves
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 medium sized onion, finely chopped
2 cloves finely chopped garlic
½ tsp. fennel seeds
½ cup medium firm tofu diced
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees C.
Place the spinach in a pan with just the water clinging to its leaves after washing. Steam over medium heat until wilted; about 7 minutes.
Warm the oil in a pan over moderate heat, add the onion, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add the fennel seeds and finely chopped garlic and cook for 1 – 2 minutes longer.
Add the onion mixture and the tofu to the spinach. Season with salt and pepper if you desire, and mix thoroughly; allow to cool.
Cut a sheet of fillo pastry lengthwise into two strips. Spoon filling onto the tops edge of one strip and make a triangle. Brush with small amount of olive oil.
Place on baking sheet and repeat using all the filling to make triangles. Bake until golden crisp: about 10 minutes.
Serve immediately or keep in a warm oven before serving. Very tasty!
