  • 1 tray of Veetee Long Grain Rice
  • 200g fresh spinach leaves
  • 200g pack of feta cheese
  • 4 large eggs
  • 100g cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 sheets of filo pastry
  • ½ tsp oregano
  • Seasoning to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C / Gas Mark 7 / 425°F. Microwave the rice according to pack instructions then set aside.
  2. Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk thoroughly. Crumble in the feta then add the cheddar cheese, seasoning, oregano and cooked rice.
  3. In a saucepan, add the oil then sauté the spinach leaves until wilted.
  4. Add the spinach to the egg mixture and thoroughly mix.
  5. Unravel the filo pastry and start carefully layering it into your ovenproof dish, overlapping the layers to avoid the mixture leaking out. Add the egg mixture, then drape the pastry edges into the middle of the pie to envelop and seal the mixture.
  6. Place in the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes or until pastry is nicely browned and crisp on top.
  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before cutting into slices and serving
  8. Perfect for a light meal, school lunch, picnic lunch and can be enjoyed either hot or cold.
