The secret to my spanakopita is 3 kinds of onion - red onion, spring onions and leek. If you are lacking one, just add more of the others, but this is the 'secret ingredient' to an excellent pie. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb country-style phyllo pastry (if you can't get that, regular phyllo pastry will do)
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, approximately
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 lbs spinach, cleaned, tough stems removed
  • 6 spring onions, cleaned, sliced in 1/4 inch lengths
  • 1 leek, white and tender part of green, cleaned, sliced in 1/4 inch lengths (if very large, slice leek in half lengthwise before slicing)
  • 1 medium red onion, chopped fine
  • 3/4 cup fresh dill, minced
  • 1/2-3/4 lb feta cheese, crumbled (this is a matter of personal taste. i like my spanakopita 'sweeter' and therefore use the lesser amo)
  • 3 eggs, beaten
