Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information.

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl mix the butter and flour together until crumble (the butter must be at room temperature).
  2. Then add in the egg (slightly beaten), water and salt and knead until the dough is not sticky anymore.
  3. Put the dough in the fridge, Covered in plastic, until we make the filling.
  4. Filling:
  5. In a bowl mix the spinach (you SHOULD defrost the spinach and drain it very well Before, Usually I defrost it in the microwave about 10 to 15 min., That's easier) with the shredded cheese, sour cream, chopped dill, chopped onion and shredded carrots (very thin).
  6. Beat the eggs and stir in (but keep one yolk for oiling the surface of the pie)
  7. Season with salt and pepper as for your keys.
  8. I used half pound of feta cheese in the filling But you CAN add 4.5 oz of feta and 3.5 oz of cheddar cheese (cheddar Makes the more homogenous the filling)
  9. Preheat the oven at 356 F.
  10. Now you CAN take out the dough from the fridge and divide it in two, one piece is for the bottom of the market and Should Be Bigger, The Other One Will Be for the top of the pie and Will Be Smaller. From the second one we Will make strips and We will make the grid.
  11. Make the first sheet with the rolling pin a little bit Thicker, THEN oil the tray and put it inside Covering the sides of the tray.
  12. Add in the filling, THEN make the other sheet and cut strips. Them interpolated on top of the pie and spread over the yolk mixed with 3 tbsp. of milk.
  13. Cook until is nice roasted.
  14. Enjoy! it's delightful!

Tips

Health Tips

  • With feta cheese, a little goes a long way, so you probably don't need to worry about using low fat varieties (plus, research suggests people who eat full fat dairy are thinner than those who eat reduced fat products!)

  • You can easily swap half of the white flour in most recipes for whole wheat flour to add some fiber and protein. It does result in a heavier dough, so for cookies, cakes, etc., you might try swapping in whole wheat pastry flour.

  • Since most of its calories come from fat, sour cream has a bad reputation for being an unhealthy food. However, fat is an important part of the diet and studies suggest people who eat full fat dairy are thinner than those who reach for reduced fat products. That said, fat has more calories per gram than carbohydrates or protein, so if you are counting calories to lose weight, you might want to try substituting greek yogurt for some of the sour cream in recipes that call for a lot of it.

  • Unfortunately feta cheese is high in sodium, so if you're watching your sodium intake you might need to substitute another cheese. Some say rinsing the cheese also reduces its sodium content.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

  • Fresh herbs can be expensive, so don't let them go to waste. If you have any leftovers, you might be able to freeze them. The Kitchn recommends freezing hardy herbs like rosemary and thyme in olive oil, while Better Homes and Gardens suggests using freezer bags to freeze basil, chives, mint, and more.

Cooking Tips

  • Traditionally, feta cheese is made from sheep's or goat's milk (or a combination of the two). Now some supermarkets sell "feta-style" cheeses made from cow's milk. If you want the authentic feta experience, be sure to read the label carefully.

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

  • Don't have fresh herbs? Substitute dried herbs, but use about 1/3 less because dried herbs are more potent than fresh.

  • Fresh herbs should be added toward the end of the cooking process — even at the very last minute?especially delicate herbs like cilantro, basil, and dill. Hardier herbs like bay leaves, rosemary, and thyme can be added earlier.

Green Tips

  • To avoid antibiotics, hormones, and other nasties in your milk, choose organic whenever possible. If you can't afford organic, look for milk labeled hormone and antibiotic free. It is often less expensive.
