WHAT IS SPANAKOPITA?

Spanakopita, comes from the Greek word (spanáki), meaning spinach and (πίτα) meaning Pie. Also known as Spinach pie, this  is a traditional Greek recipe. It is a savory pie, containing a mix of spinach and feta, onion, fresh chopped leeks, herbs and spices, cooked and blended to perfection. Typically it is a triangular pastry shape or rectangularly cut and served alongside other greek foods. 

The history of Greece dates back thousands of years, as well as the culinary use of the majority of the ingredients in spanakopita, however; the origin of the spinach pie dates back about 400 years. No one knows exactly when the first recipe was developed, though it may be similiar to ispanakli, which is a Turkish dish.
