Give me Mexican, Italian, even German dishes any day, and I can make many of them without breaking a sweat. But Greek food? I get intimidated! I mean, try saying spanakopita five times fast!
Luckily, what I lack in a quick tongue, I make up for in the ease of this recipe. Spanakopita, a savory spinach pie, has sprung to the top of my list of go-to dinners when I want to impress without the fuss. Layers and layers of thin, buttery phyllo dough sandwich a delightful, bright-green mixture of scallions, spinach, parsley and feta cheese. It’s comforting, yet light, and way easier to make than it seems.
