Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion
  • 1/3 cup scallions chopped
  • 2 teaspoons garlic minced
  • 6 cups spinach freah
  • 1/2 cup Italian flat-leaf parsley chopped
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon JustEgg vegan egg replacer
  • 1 1/2 cups vegan feta cheese crumbled
  • 8 sheets phyllo dough thawed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly oil a 9x13" baking dish.
  • Into a large skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the yellow onion and scallions. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently until softened. Add the garlic and continue cooking for an additional 1 minute.
  • Stir in the spinach and parsley. Continue cooking for 2 minutes, stirring frequently until the spinach is wilted. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Into a medium-size mixing bowl, add the JustEgg vegan egg replacer and the vegan feta. Stir gently until just combined. Fold in the spinach mixture.
  • Into the prepared baking dish, place two sheets of phyllo dough and brush lightly to cover with olive oil. Add another 2 sheets and brush again with olive oil, then repeat with two more sheets of phyllo dough and olive oil. (Phyllo dough is very delicate and it's okay if it tears; just make sure you're covering the pan completely with each layer.)
  • Add the spinach and feta mixture, gently spreading to cover the phyllo dough.
  • Top with 4 additional sheets of phyllo dough, brushing with olive oil after each addition.
  • Bake for 40 minutes, until lightly crispy and golden brown. Allow to set for 10 minutes then slice and serve.
