Greek Spinach Patties

Print Friendly and PDF
These patties are really easy to make and are a tasty side dish or snack as well as being extremely nutritious.

Ingredients

1 kg fresh spinach finely chopped
1 bunch spring onions finely chopped
1 medium size leek finely chopped
200g feta cheese crumbled
1 egg lightly beaten
3 tablespoons crumbled rusks
3 tablespoons extra virgin oil
3 tablespoons dill finely chopped
Salt to taste


Preparation

Gently simmer the spring onions and leek in 3 tablespoons of water for 5 minutes, to soften them.

Drain them and let them cool.

Put the spinach in a mixing bowl, squeeze well with your hands and then drain off the liquid that has come out.

Add all the ingredients to the mixing bowl – apart from 1 tablespoon of oil – along with the onions and leek.

Mix them well and add salt, but be careful not to make it too salty, as feta cheese is salty.

Grease a shallow oven dish with the 1 tablespoon of oil you didn’t use.

Form the mixture into round patty shapes – 15cm diameter, 4cm height – and place them in the oven dish. Make sure you leave some space between them as they will spread slightly as they are cooking.

Bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees Celsius for about 45 minutes.

Don’t worry if they appear soft – they will firm up as they cool.



Eat and Enjoy!

I'd love to have the usual burger patty be replaced by this one. :)

Have a great day!
