View Profile

Looking for a quick starter before dinner this weekend? These easy slow cooker spinach and cheese squares are delicious, but we can’t guarantee they’ll last long!




  1. Heat oil in a frypan, then add onion, shallots and garlic. Cook for 1 minute until softened, then add spinach and half the dill. Stir over low heat for 1-2 minutes or until spinach has wilted. Drain and cool, then combine with cheeses, egg, nutmeg, salt and pepper.

  2. Preheat oven to 180°C. Brush a 2.5-litre baking dish with butter. Lay one sheet of filo on base and sides and brush with butter. Repeat with 5 more sheets. Spread cheese mixture over top. Cover with remaining filo, brushing each sheet with butter. Trim excess pastry with kitchen scissors and tuck edges into sides of dish. Brush top with butter and score in diamond patterns.

  3. Bake for 45 minutes or until golden. Rest for 10 minutes. Warm remaining butter, add remaining dill and, when serving, pour over finished slices.

  1. I’m lazy and just use puff pastry…..one layer on the bottom and one on top and silver beet, feta, etc. in between. Oh, and I just make one big round one and cut it in wedges when it is cooked.

  2. Another bad mistake for this recipe writer – slow cooked
    ??!! I like this website generally, but the food item articles are not good. I have tried a few recipes and were very unhealthy and fatty tasting. Can we please have healthy recipe takes on old favourites to suit our age group?
    Also, can I ask why the author of this website is so young that she is sometimes way out of kilter with what we want.? Catchy titles for articles , but they tend to go downhill from there.
