Baked Spinach & Feta Pie

I had bought a huge bag of Spinach at the market and we all loved it, but after eating about half of what was prepared it was time to do something new with the leftovers. This was the perfect time to bake a Spinach & Feta Pie. I show you how easy this is to do in today's blog. Best is that this is extremely healthy as well!

This spinach was boiled in water with salt and pepper added, a little butter and an onions and a potato, but you can use virtually any leftover spinach, or start with freshly cooked spinach which is chopped fine. The spinach is added to a large mixing bowl.

I fry 250 g bacon in some oil before adding it to the mixing bowl.

I then chop an onion finely and fry this in the oil as well before adding it to the mixing bowl.

Lightly beat 6 eggs and add these to the mixing bowl.

Instead of adding cream, I opt to add a cup (250 ml) of plain yogurt to the mixing bowl.

1 teaspoon (5 ml) each of salt and pepper is added for seasoning.

I'll show you a quick progress photo. As you can see everything is literally simply added to the bowl and will be mixed in at the end.

I now chop about 1 1/2 cups (375 ml) feta cheese and crumble this into the bowl as well.

3 teaspoons (15 ml) crushed garlic is added before everything is mixed together.

After mixing I add 1 cup (250 ml) cake flour and 1 teaspoon (5 ml) baking powder. I then mix everything together again.

Prepare a large baking dish with non-stick spray.

Pour the mixture into the dish. Bake for 15 minutes in a preheated oven at 180 °C.

Grate 2 cups (500 ml) Cheddar Cheese.

Remove the half-baked pie from the oven and cover with the grated cheese. Increase the oven temperature to 200 °C and bake for another 15-20 minutes

Remove from the oven when a test pin comes out clean.

Serve hot and fresh from the oven.
