Instructions

    1. Preheat your oven to 180°C. In a pan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil and brown the onions, shallot, garlic until golden brown with honey.

    2. Add the chopped spinach to the pan and cook until it is tender and all the water has evaporated. Remove the pan from the heat and let cool slightly.

    3. In a large bowl, combine the crumbled feta, lightly beaten eggs, parsley, dill, mint, salt and pepper. Add the cooled spinach mixture and mix well.

    4. Lightly brush a baking dish with olive oil. Place a sheet of filo pastry on the bottom of the dish and brush it with olive oil. Repeat this step with 5 sheets of filo pastry, brushing each sheet with olive oil.

    5. Pour the spinach filling over the filo pastry in the dish. Spread it evenly. Cover the spinach filling with another sheet of filo pastry brushed with olive oil, then repeat this step with 4 more sheets of filo pastry, brushing each sheet with olive oil.

    6. Using a sharp knife, make diagonal cuts across the surface of the pie. Brush the surface with olive oil.

    7. Place the tart in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 45 minutes or until the tart is golden and crisp.

    8. Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool slightly before cutting it into portions. Serve hot or at room temperature.
