How to Make It

Helpful Tips

Frozen or Fresh Spinach

It's better to skip frozen spinach and use fresh silverbeet (chard) for this recipe, especially since the spinach is not previously cooked and there is no phyllo pastry or crust. Also, fresh spinach is traditionally used to make Greek Spanakopita. It has a distinctively different texture and flavour compared to frozen spinach.

Making it Dairy-Free

Using dairy-free alternatives for this recipe works perfectly well. Simply replace each dairy product with its non-dairy equivalent eg. feta with vegan feta and cheddar with vegan cheddar.

Gluten-Free Flour Alternatives

This recipe can also be made using wheat-based flour and works just as well.

The only change would be to increase the GF self-raising flour to one whole cup of wheat SR flour.
