Spinach for dinner


gouache painting in progress

I am making Spinach, Pine Nut and Fetta triangles tonight (recipe below) but first that spinach is too good not to paint.  Thought I would film it (fast forward) so here is a short 40 sec video of the process.     Have a look, it's quite fun.  Click on this:

Spinach, Pine Nut and Fetta Triangles

18 sheets filo pastry
250 g spinach, cooked, chopped and squeezed dry
125 g ricotta cheese
125 g feta cheese
1 shallot or spring onion, finely chopped
1/4 c pine nuts
1/4 c oil or melted butter
pinch ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C
Combine spinach, cheeses, shallot, pine nuts and nutmeg
Lightly oil fillo and fold each sheet into thirds lengthwise.  Place a tsp of                          filling at one end of pastry and fold the pastry at right angles to enclose.                                        Brush outer layer lightly with oil.  Repeat with remaining filling and pastry.
Place seam side down on lightly oiled baking tray and bake for 15-20 min                                          or until golden.  Makes 18.

Here is the spinach
