Recipe developed by Konaye Dlatu
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Bunch spring onion finely chopped
1 Packet baby spinach
Finely chopped dill
1 Egg lightly beaten
Melted butter for brushing
Heat oven to 180 degrees & line two baking sheets with baking parchment.
Heat the oil in a pan, then cook the spring onions for 1-2 mins until softened. Add the spinach and cook for a few mins more until any liquid has disappeared then remove from the heat.
Add the ricotta, dill and season with pepper. Taste, then add a little salt if needed.
Add the egg and spinach to the mixture, then mix well.
Unfold the filo and cut it into three pieces lengthwise, cutting through all of the sheets at once. Take out 3 sheets and wrap the remainder tightly to prevent them from drying out.
Brush the 3 strips lightly with melted butter. Fold in half lengthwise so they are half the length, then brush again with butter. Place 1 tbsp of the mixture on the end of each strip, fold a little pastry over the filling, then fold in the edges.
Brush the tops with butter, then bake for 15-18 mins until lightly golden and crisp.
You can choose any dip of your choice, tip, they go really nice with soy sauce.
Enjoy and let Albex Dishwashing Liquid help clean up the mess!
