    Spinach Banitsa (Spanachena Banitsa)


    2lbs flour,
    3 cups water
    2lbs spinach, finely chopped
    1lbs white cheese (feta),
    3/2 cups of yoghurt (or milk),
    4 tbsp butter,
    1 tbsp oil,
    1 tsp vinegar,
    a pinch of salt.


    Cook the spinach in 1 tbsp butter for 5 mins. Let it cool and add in the crumbled cheese and yoghurt. Separately, combine the flour, oil, vinegar, salt and water and knead until you get hard dough. Separate into 10 and roll into thin sheets. You can also use filo dough sheets from the store instead. Line a baking dish with butter, place 1 sheet on the bottom and top with the spinach filling. Repeat until all sheets are done. Bake for about 35 mins in 375 F oven.
