Pastryless Spanakopita (Crustless Spinach & Feta Pie)

This Crustless Spinach and Feta Pie is made with fresh spinach, garden herbs, creamy feta cheese, and the nutritional goodness of eggs! It tastes just like traditional Spanakopita but without the fuss of rolling out your own filo pastry. Best of all it's healthy, juicy, and topped with plenty of cheese! Yum!



Now that winter has arrived, we are once again cooking my Pastryless Spanakopita every week, especially since we have so much silverbeet growing in the garden.

Have you made this yet, because it is one of the most popular recipes on my webpage.

I think what is most appealing is that there is no need to make your own pastry yet it tastes every bit as good as a Spanakopita with pastry.


Best of all, you'll love that this is a one-bowl recipe. Simply throw everything into one bowl, combine well and then bake.


And what about leftovers you ask?

Simply store it in a container and enjoy it the next day. Leftovers can be eaten cold (lunchbox meal) or hot by just heating in the microwave or conventional oven. Best of all (and trust me) it makes an amazing breakfast.





And now it’s time to start cooking! As always, if you make any of my recipes, I would love to hear your feedback. I am available here via email or you can catch me daily on Instagram. Don’t forget to save it on your Pinterest board as well! I have a board named CreateCookShare that you can follow and save. Can’t wait to hear from you.


Happy Creating,

Margaret
