Greek Spinach Pie
From: Evangelos Doussis

a light, low-fat dish, brilliant for lunch at work served hot, warm, or cold

the dough :

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tbl spoons oil
  • 1/2 spoon oregano
  • dash of salt
Mix ingredients; knead for about 2-3 minutes; adding flour to until it doesn't stick to the hands - separate into 3 equal parts the filling :
  • about one pound of thawed frozen spinach- i prefer the chopped leaves kind
  • a couple of chopped green shallots (can replace with 1/3 white onion)
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
  • salt, pepper, thyme
Mix ingredients

the assembly :

Roll out the 3 dough balls - so that each one is a bit bigger than your baking pan (i use 8x12 in.) - the amount of dough, for that size will give you the right thickness

Place the first layer on the greased pan, with ends hanging over the pan rim - add half the filling

Follow on with the second dough layer -add the rest of the filling

Finish off with the last dough layer; fold the dough layers together

Pluck a few holes, making sure you go through the second layer of dough

Bake for 3/4 hour at around 400F
