Serve these classic Greek spinach triangles as an appetizer for eight—or as an entrée for four, with a salad or soup on the side.
chopped frozen spinach10 oz, thawed and squeezed dry
reduced-fat feta cheese⅓ cup(s), crumbled
uncooked scallion(s)3 medium, chopped
egg white(s)1 large
dill1 ½ Tbsp, fresh, or 3/4 teaspoon dried
black pepper¼ tsp, freshly ground
phyllo dough8 sheet(s), (12 x 17-inch) at room temperature
olive oil2 Tbsp
- Place the oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat the oven to 375ºF. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
- Press the spinach between layers of paper towels to remove any excess moisture. Place the cheese in a medium bowl and mash with a fork. Add the spinach, cheese, scallions, egg white, dill, and pepper; stir together until combined.
- Set the stack of phyllo sheets to one side; keep covered with a sheet of wax paper and a damp towel on top as you work.
- Lay 1 phyllo sheet lengthwise in front of you and brush the sheet lightly with oil. Top with another sheet and brush lightly with oil. Cut crosswise into 6 even strips. Place a scant tablespoon of the spinach mixture at the end of each strip. Fold one corner up over the filling, then continue folding in a flag fashion, to form a triangle. Place on the baking sheet and repeat with the remaining filling and phyllo sheets to make 24 triangles. Brush the tops of the triangles lightly with any remaining oil.
- Bake until golden brown, about 25 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes and serve hot or warm. Yields 3 triangles per serving.
