Dinners - Spinach Triangles

Photobucket


This is a meal from my family. I'm not entirely sure about this one but there are particular dinners and desserts that have come down the generations due to their scrumpdiddlyumptiousness.
They were taught to me by my dad who learnt from his mum my Nanna who learnt from her mum who learnt from Peter the Japanese cook.

Peter wasn't in our family but he cooked very tasty and not so Japanese meals.

Anyway. This is one of my favourites and one I have been often craving since being pregnant.

Ingredients
bunch of spinach or silver-beet
6 eggs
500g tub of cottage cheese
big handful of grated tasty cheese
pack of filo pastry
butter or olive oil

Chop the white bits off the spinach and finely chop the green bits. Rinse under the tap to take off any dirt or bugs then boil in a pan of water for about 5 mins.
Drain the spinach and return to pan. Add eggs, cottage cheese, cheese and a dash of salt and pepper. You can also add some spices, garlic, chilli, mushrooms anything that takes your fancy.

Take a sheet of filo and place it on a clean dry surface. Brush butter or oil on the sheet and then place another on top. Oil this sheet too. Add a small dollop of the spinach mix onto the filo.

Put in the oven for 40 mins on 180 or untill the tops are brown and the mix is solid.

Enjoy on their own or with steamed vegies or salad.
