Prep Time 20 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Total Time 45 mins


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 350 grams spinach chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 350 grams feta cheese
  • 200 grams ricotta cheese
  • sea salt and cracked black pepper
  • 2 sheets of pastry we used Careme butter puff pastry because it's made from real butter and not margarine. It's expensive, but I'm having more and more trouble finding Pampas Butter Pastry which was more affordable
  • 1 egg with a splash of milk lightly beaten to be used as egg wash on the pastry
  • sesame seeds and poppy seeds for sprinkling


  • Heat olive oil in large frying pan over medium heat
  • Saute onion for a few minutes then add garlic and spinach and saute for another few minutes until spinach is soft, then add parsley and stir together. Allow to cool.
  • In a medium bowl stir together the feta and ricotta cheese and salt and pepper to taste. Stir through the cooled spinach mixture.
  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees C
  • Pop some baking paper over two baking trays
  • Cut pastry in half, then each half into quarters, so you end up with 8 triangles per sheet of pastry.
  • Pop a couple of heaped tablespoons of the cheese and spinach mixture along one of the shorter sides of the triangle, and fold over.
  • Secure pastry together and seal the edges using the back of a fork ( Best to watch the Facebook Live video to see best way to fill, fold and secure).
  • Brush some egg wash over each triangle and sprinkle over the sesame and poppyseeds.
  • Place triangles on baking tray and cook for approximately 25 minutes or until golden brown
  • Serve with a big side of salad.
  • Enjoy!


These are delicious hot or cold, and make a perfect lunchbox addtion.
