Here is the Super Spinach Filo Tart we made using the recipe we were taught at Maggie and Rose children’s club last Summer. It is a definitely family favourite and the girls all love to help make it. It is a really creamy tart and tastes delicious. My girls are not normally big fans of spinach but they love this recipe.Filo tart


2 onions, halved and sliced

Knob of butter

2 garlic cloves, crushed

500g spinach, washed and roughly chopped

Pinch grated nutmeg

200g feta cheese (crumbled)

2 eggs, beaten

4 large sheets filo pastry


1. Heat the oven to 200°C / Gas Mark 6

2. Cook the onions in a knob of butter until golden and soft. Add garlic and cook for a couple of minutes.  Add spinach in batches and cook until wilted. These steps will need to be done by an adult.


3. Cool, then tip into a bowl, leaving behind any excess liquid from the spinach. Mix in the nutmeg, feta, eggs. Season.



4. Melt some more butter. Put the first sheet of filo in the tin and brush with butter, letting the excess hang over the edges of the tin.


5. Keep going with the rest of the sheets, turning a little before adding each additional pastry sheet and brushing all over with the butter. When all the pastry is used up, tip in the filling and fold over the excess pastry to cover.


6. Butter the top.


7. Then bake in the oven for about 20-30 minutes until the filo is crisp and golden.


7. Leave for a few minutes before turning out.


We served it with potato wedges.
