Spinach and Feta Turnovers


Words of wisdom from the family: “Melt-in-your-mouth. Savory.” This recipe is originally from Bite Delite, and I have to say we didn’t change much. Simple and delicious.


  • 2 sheets puff pastry, quartered
  • 2 bunches spinach, ends trimmed, washed, shredded
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 red onion, sliced
  • 2 (cloves) garlic, chopped
  • 3.5 oz. feta, crumbled
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and cook until onion is translucent.
  3. Add salt and spinach to the oil, onion, and garlic mixture. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the spinach has wilted (is darker in color and smaller in size).
  4. Remove from heat. Mix in the feta and set aside to cool. The feta may melt a bit- this is a good thing!
  5. Line baking trays with parchment paper or tin foil.
  6. Divide the filling among the pastry squares. Place about 1 tablespoon spinach mixture in the middle of each pastry square.
  7. Fold each square along the middle, forming a triangle. Arrange on baking sheet, leaving plenty of room between them.
  8. Bake for about 25 minutes, or until golden-brown and fragrant.

NOTES: This makes 8 (large) turnovers, which the 6 of us demolished. Definitely not a main course, but works great as a side. If you cut the puff pastry into smaller squares, it would also work as an appetizer.
