Spinach pie, Mediterranean Diet, The Cretan Diet,



  1. Place the eggs, olive oil, milk, salt and two cups of flour in a bowl. 
  2. Work the mixture by gradually adding the equivalent amount of flour and knead into a dough. 
  3. Check its density by hand and knead on a floured surface for 4-5 minutes. Cover with a linen cloth and let it rest, until you prepare the stuffing.
  4. Combine the finely chopped spinach and parsley in a big bowl. Dip your hands in plenty of salt and rub the spinach and parsley, until they shrivel up and acquire a vivid, deep green colour. 
  5. Mix them with the finely chopped onions, spearmint, pepper and sour mizithra cheese.
  6. Divide the dough in half. Mix the finely chopped spinach and parsley in a big bowl. Slightly oil a round baking pan and lay the pastry sheet, so that an overhang is created. 
  7. Empty the filling onto the pastry sheet and spread it uniformly with a spoon. Cover with a second pastry sheet and fold it around attaching the one with the other.
  8.  Brush the pie with the beaten yolk. Sprinkle sesame over it and bake for 40-45 minutes at 180oC. Let the pie cool before cutting. It can also be eaten cold.
