1 cup washed spinach leaves, packed ( 250 ml)
1Tbsp. olive oil (15 ml)
3 green onions, chopped
2 tbsp. fresh, chopped dill (30 ml)
1/4 cup good quality feta cheese, crumbled (60 ml)
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup melted butter or Greek olive oil (60 ml)
6 sheets phyllo pastry
cracked black pepper to taste
pinch freshly grated nutmeg
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
Wash spinach and immerse into boiling salted water for about 3 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water. Squeeze out all excess moisture and reserve. Heat oil in a saucepan and add onion, spinach and dill. Cook on high for 2 minutes until onions soften. Remove and cool. Combine the cooled spinach mixture with feta, eggs and salt and pepper. Set aside.
Stack 6 sheets of phyllo on top of each other. Cut into 5 equal strips. Work with 1 pile of phyllo at a time. Wrap remaining phyllo up in tea towel . Brush 1 strip with butter and cover with a second strip and butter again.* Note if using a thicker kind of phyllo use only one sheet per triangle. Lay strip down vertically in front of you.
Spoon a heaping teaspoon of filling in bottom corner of strip and fold over in half diagonally creating a triangle. Continue folding over into triangular shape until you reach end of strip. Repeat with remaining strips. Brush tops with a little more olive oil.
Place triangles on a baking sheet and bake at 375 D in middle rack of oven for about 20 minutes or until golden.
Serve warm as appetizer or along with your main course.
Makes about 20 triangles
