These savory puff pastry turnovers go by many names - but in our house they usually don't last long enough to call them by name!


Olive oil 1 Teaspoon
Onion 1 , finely chopped
Garlic cloves 3 , minced
Fresh spinach 200 Gram
Salt and pepper To Taste
Juice of lemon 1/2
Eggs 1 , separated
Feta 100 Gram , crumbled
Frozen puff pastry 475 Gram , Defrosted



1. Preheat the oven to 400 degree F.

2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.


3. Place a large skillet over medium flame and heat olive oil in it.

4. Add onion and garlic. Stir and cook until just softened.

5. Drop spinach and cook for about 3 minutes or until fully wilted.

6. Remove skillet from heat and season spinach lightly with salt and pepper.

7. Add lemon juice and egg yolk. Give it a good stir.

8. Into a strainer, transfer the spinach mixture. Strain and squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Roughly chop spinach.

9. In a bowl, place spinach and add crumbled feta to it. Mix well.

10. Cut puff pastry into six 5x5-inch squares and place them on baking sheet.

11. Spoon equal amounts of the spinach mixture on the center of each square.

12. Fold the puff pastry over to form a triangle and tightly seal edges with a fork.

13. Brush rolled pastry with the reserved egg white.

14. Pop the baking sheet in oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.


15. Serve spinach and feta bourekas hot.
