  • 250 g (8 oz) spinach leaves, rinsed
  • 125 g (4 oz) feta cheese, crumbled
  • large pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 4 sheets of filo pastry
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • tomato and red onion salad, to serve
  • Place the spinach in a large saucepan without any extra water, cover and cook for 2 minutes until wilted. Drain and squeeze out as much excess water as possible.
  • Chop the spinach and mix with the feta, nutmeg and parsley in a bowl. Season with pepper (the feta is salty so check before adding salt).
  • Place 2 sheets of filo pastry on top of one another and brush lightly with oil. Place half the filling at the end of the sheet, then fold over to make a triangle and continue folding until the filling is enclosed. Brush with oil. Repeat to make 1 more parcel.
  • Place the parcels on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven, 200°C (400°F), Gas Mark 6, for 15 minutes until crisp and golden. Serve with tomato and red onion salad.
