iii. Reading Activities
Phew! It has almost been a month since I made an entry into this foodie blog of mine. However, I have been accumulating the pictures of all the dishes that I have prepared (or I helped to prepare) The only thing was I didn't have the time to upload any of the recipes.
Well, I shall not tell you about how busy I have been; let's just say I have been really busy. So, for this entry I have decided to share my version of the famous Greek food Spanakopita. My version is just simply called Peas and Feta Samosas. I call it my version because it contains almost the same ingredients as Spanakopita, only I omitted the spinach because I can't eat it.
- 5 sheets of 12-inch x 12-inch filo pastry
- 1 cup crumbled feta cheese, crumbled
- 2 cups petit pois, blanched
- 1 large onion, sliced and caramelized
- 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup cooking oil
In a bowl, mix the feta, petit pois, caramelized onion and black pepper together and set aside. Cut each filo pastry into long 4-inch strips. Take one of the strips, and brush with the cooking oil. On one corner of the strip, put a teaspoon of the feta filling. Then fold the filo strip to form an equilateral triangle. Repeat with the rest of the filo strips.
Bake the samosas in an oven pre-heated at 180 C for about 25 minutes or until the pastry turns golden brown. Serve immediately.
