Since one of the Greek Sisters (Joanna) is a vegetarian, she’s always coming up with ways to make Greek dishes without meat. This recipe takes a couple of components from Greek favorites but is prepared like a quiche, which makes it easy to omit meat and easy to make. So we have potatoes from moussaka, spinach and feta from spanakopita, and eggs to hold it together like a quiche. Interesting… and delicious!

Steps

1
Done

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

2
Done

Coat a (glass preferred) pie plate with olive oil then line the bottom and sides of pie plate with potato slices.

3
Done

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes to tenderize the potatoes. Remove from oven and set aside.

4
Done

Add olive oil to sauté pan and sauté onions until tender, not brown. Remove from heat.

5
Done

Combine spinach, onion and olive. Add to pie plate and spread.

6
Done

Mix ricotta, eggs, and feta cheese. Add to pie plate by layering on top of spinach mix. Add layer of tomatoes.

7
Done

Bake 20 - 25 minutes, until egg sets and a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.

8
Done

Remove from oven and add extra feta, if desired, and sprinkle with grated cheese and bake 5 more minutes, or until feta melts. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes.

9
Done

Variation

You can use fresh spinach as opposed to frozen. Just use a 10 ounce bag of baby spinach and sauté with onion, until wilted. Drain juices and add to pie plate lined with potatoes.
