12 ounces of fresh spinach
7 scallion stems , chopped
1/4 cup Italian parsley
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 cup+  vegetable broth
1 pound of phyllo sheets
1/3 cup of olive oil for brushing phyllo and more if needed

Feta filling

2 tbsp apple cidre vinegar
1 tbsp water
3/4 tsp sea salt

Preheat over at 350 degrees
In a pan, cook the scallions in the broth until soft
Add the spinach, salt & pepper and cook until wilted, add more broth if needed, the mixture shouldn’t however be too liquid, then turn off the heat. Add the parsley and mix well. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl.

For the filling, drain and rince the cashews. Put them in a food processor, add the vinegar, water and salt. Pulse until a coarsely chopped texture. Add the feta to the spinach mixture and mix well.

Brush the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with some of the olive oil

Lay half of the phyllo at the bottom of the pan and generously brush entire surface.
Spread spinach mixture on top. Then cover with the remaining phyllo sheets. Brush with rest of the olive oil.

Bake for 1 hour until it is golden brown on top. Let it cool completely before cutting. It makes 24 pieces but you can certainly turn it into a meal and cut into larger pieces.

Enjoy !
