Preparation

  • Golden the diced shallots in a pan with olive oil. Set aside. Add the washed and drained spinachs. Season to taste : you can add oriental spices for exemple. Remove spinachs from heat when they're cooked and drain them well. Leave to cool down.
  • Chop the spinachs and combine them in a bowl with ricotta.
  • Melt the butter in microwave. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Put a filo sheet and brush melted butter on both sides. Put a second filo sheet on top and brush the top with melted butter. Put the spinach and ricotta mix on top, form a line. You can make it with a piping bag or a spoon.
  • Crumble some feta cheese on top of this line. Roll the sheet to make a cylinder roll. Repeat the operation to form all the rolls.
  • Put the rolls in a round pan. Brush the top with some melted butter.
  • Bake the Börek for 20 to 25 minutes at 350°F (180°C), until golden.
  • Remove from oven, sprinkle some sesame seed and dry thyme on top if you want, and there you are ! Your Börek is ready !
