Preparation

Step 1

Greek-American Spinach Pie - Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Dice the onion into small pieces and mince the garlic. Cook both in a small skillet with olive oil over medium heat until soft and transparent (about five minutes). If you're using frozen spinach, before adding it, strain it in a colander and press out as much moisture as possible (squeezing handfuls in a fist works well too). For fresh spinach just add it to the pan and cook until soft.
