Today I have an easy Greek spinach pie recipe to share with you! A dish like this is a little unexpected for summertime, but I have a good reason, I promise. It all started with a little bag of spinach from my freezer…
You see, my freezer is seriously overflowing! I went waaaay overboard preparing freezer meals while I was pregnant, anticipating that I’d need a ton of them when the baby was born.
To my surprise, I’ve been fortunate enough to have a little angel that sleeps through the night most of the time, even though she’s only seven weeks old. (Seven weeks tomorrow, to be exact.) She goes approximately a six to seven hour stretch, from midnight to 6 or 7 in the morning! Amazing. My first kid was (and still is) an excellent sleeper from the start, too. I didn’t think I’d be lucky enough to have the second be the same way. I am so, so grateful.
What this means is that I’ve had enough sleep (read: sanity!) to actually get stuff done during the day. And I love it! Aside from releasing my low carb meal planning starter kit and low carb dinners cookbook, I’ve been busy, busy, busy churning out new recipes.
The only downside is, I’ve been cooking so many new foods that I’ve barely made a dent in my huge freezer stash! It’s so full that it’s practically impossible to get at anything. Oops.
Having freezer meals every day is boring though, and I still couldn’t resist creating a new recipe. I decided to compromise by developing one that uses up at least one ingredient from my freezer, and otherwise doesn’t require buying anything new at the store. (Aside from my freezer, my fridge has been getting pretty full, too!)
After digging through what was in there (and nearly having half the contents collapse onto me in the process!), I found a one-pound bag of spinach in the back of the freezer and a container of feta in the fridge. Right away, I knew I’d be creating a low carb Greek recipe.
Voila! The idea for this Greek spinach pie was born. To my delight, I had all the other ingredients needed in my fridge and pantry, too.
This Greek spinach pie is reminiscent of spanakopita, but in pie form. I fell in love with those little hand pies when I worked at Santorini during college, which inspired me to create these Greek spinach stuffed mushrooms with feta and garlic last year. They are delicious, but I didn’t have mushrooms. Plus, I wanted something with a crust. This easy spinach feta pie solved both problems!
You can also use this savory low carb crust for all sorts of other things. It would be perfect to use for a low carb quiche! I’m definitely planning to re-purpose it for other recipes.
One of my favorite things about this recipe is that, even though it looks fancy, it’s mostly hands-off. It takes just a few minutes to assemble the crust, then you can prep the spinach feta filling while the crust bakes. Transfer the filling into the crust, and after that you have about half an hour to do other things around the house while it bakes.
This low carb Greek spinach pie has been extremely versatile for various meals. Any leftovers refrigerate and reheat very well. (I actually like it cold, too!) It makes an excellent grab-and-go breakfast or snack. If you have a couple of servings, it’s also a delicious and satisfying vegetarian lunch or dinner! It will keep you full, with 3 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein per serving.
Needless to say, I’m quite thankful for that little bag of spinach in the back of my freezer! We wouldn’t have this recipe without it.
