Vegan Spinach Pie

Vegan Spinach Pie

Adapted from this vegan recipe

I love spinach pie and spinach quiche. So I decided to try to make a healthier, vegetarian recipe for it.

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound tofu
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill or ½ teaspoon dried dill weed (replaced with chopped basil)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained and squeezed dry  (I used fresh bag of 10 oz spinach)
  • 1 (16 ounce) thawed frozen phyllo dough, divided
  • ½ cup melted margarine
  1. Chopped green onion and white onions. Squeezed lemon juice as well.
  2. Stir in olive oil, when it’s heated add onions and cook until brown.
  3. Mash the tofu
  4. Chop and wash spinach
  5. Mix the tofu in a big bowl with lemon juice, basil, salt and pepper, onions. And added left over Parmesan cheese to enhance flavor.
  6. Now the fun part, arming the pie. Phyllo dough, melted margarine and spinach mix. Time to preheat the oven to 350 ºC
  7. 13x9’ pan, brush with melted margarine and layer 2 pieces of phyllo dough on top. Then spread more margarine add 2 layers of phyllo dough and continue this process until half of the dough is used.
  8. Evenly spread spinach mix on dough
  9. Top with final phyllo dough layers and bake for 45 minutes.
  10. Look at nice brown top!

See the flakes? Hmmm

And voilá Vegetarian Spinach Pie!

Just look at the crispy, crunchy layers…taste soo good as well :)
