Spinach and feta are a classic combination and work really well with the zing of preserved lemon. Try it in these vegetarian filo parcels which make a great, simple starter, snack or lunch



  • onion 1, finely chopped
  • garlic 2 cloves, crushed
  • butter
  • spinach 1 large bag, stalks trimmed and chopped
  • feta 75g, crumbled
  • preserved lemon ½, finely chopped
  • filo pastry 4 sheets


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Fry the onion and garlic in a little butter until very soft but not browned, add the spinach and stir until it wilts and any liquid dries off. Tip the mixture into a bowl and add the feta and lemon.

  • Step 2

    Melt some more butter, brush a sheet of filo and cut it lengthways into 3 strips. Put 2 tbsp of the mix at the top of each strip and fold each over diagonally to make a triangle, then continue to fold over down the length of the pastry. Repeat with the remaining filling and pastry. Arrange the parcels on a buttered baking sheet and brush the tops with more butter. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until they’re golden brown and cooked through.
