Zucchini-Spinach-Feta-Cheese Pie

I love this pie!

I absolutely love this pie! I found the recipe by googling for recipe’s for a girls’ night at our place. After that one evening this became my favorite pie ever. It’s easy to make and tastes to delicious that I could eat half of it just by myself :) This is partially the reason I don’t have a better picture of it, it tends to disappear before I get a chance to capture it on film ;)

Spinach is healthy and tasty, zucchini guarantees a juicy pie and feta cheese adds flavor as well as makes the taste more creamy. You’ll love this too.

Crust

  • 3 dl spelt or wheat flour
  • 150 g butter
  • 2 tbsp water

Filling

  • 250 g zucchini
  • 1 leek
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • olive oil
  • 200 g fresh spinach
  • 200 g feta cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 250 g fresh cheese
  • ½ dl milk
  • 1,5 tsp salt
  • black pepper

Preparation

  1. Put the flour and salt in a large bowl. Add cold butter in cubes. Mix until even – the dough will be crumbly. Quickly add water and kneed into an even dough.
  2. Press the dough into a loose bottom cake tin (∅ 24-26 cm). Stick holes into the bottom using a fork and let the crust cool in the fridge for at least one hour.
  3. Heat the oven to 200°C. Bake the crust in the middle of the oven for ca. 10 mins.
  4. Grate the zucchini. Put the grated zucchini in a sieve and mix 0,5 tsp of salt into it. After 15 mins, squeeze the extra moisture from the zucchini. Salt will help to make the zucchini “sweat” :)
  5. Rinse the leek throughly, you don’t want any dirt in the pie. Then slice the leek. Peel the garlic cloves, then press them flat using the wide edge of your knife. Finely chop the garlic and fry them with the chopped onion lightly, with a dash of olive oil. Don’t fry too much, the onions shouldn’t catch any color. Add zucchini and keep frying for a couple of minutes. Add spinach (remember to rinse it well) and keep frying until the spinach becomes soft.
  6. Mix the spinach-onion-zucchini with feta cheese cubes and pour the mixture into the cake tin, on the crust.
  7. Mix eggs, milk, fresh cheese, salt and pepper. Pour the mixture over the filling in the cake tin.
  8. Bake in the middle of the oven for approximately 40 mins.
