Keto Spanakopita


For the Filling:

  • 1 pound (450g) fresh spinach, chopped.
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions (scallions).
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced.
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese.
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese.
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese.
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • For the Crust:
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • Salt to taste
  • Instructions:
  • Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a baking dish.
  • Prepare the Filling:
    • In a skillet over medium heat, sauté the chopped spinach until wilted. Remove from heat and let it cool. Squeeze out any excess moisture from the spinach.
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the cooled spinach, chopped green onions, minced garlic, crumbled feta cheese, ricotta cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, eggs, ground nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  • Prepare the Crust:
    • In a separate bowl, combine the almond flour, melted butter, egg, and a pinch of salt. Mix until you have a dough-like consistency.
  • Assemble the Spanakopita:
    • Press half of the crust mixture evenly into the bottom of the greased baking dish to form the bottom crust.
    • Spread the spinach and cheese filling evenly over the crust.
  • Top and Bake:
    • Take the remaining crust mixture and gently press it over the filling to create the top crust.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the filling is set.
  • Serve:
    • Once baked, remove the spanakopita from the oven and let it cool slightly before slicing and serving.
