Recipe's preparation

    Spanakopita Mixture

    Scrape down and add the coconut oil.

     

    Saute 3 min/Varoma/speed 2.

     

    Preheat oven to 280'C.

     

    Add the almonds to the bowl and chop 5-6 sec/speed 6.

    Add the rest of the ingredients and mix 10 sec/speed 4. 

     

  2. Scrape the mixture into a baking dish and bake for 20-30 minutes until set and golden on the edges.

Tip

Some Paleo occasional include cheese/dairy in their diet, we do. You could swap it out for firm tofu and make it dairy free.

 

You can use a large zucchini in place of the kale. Or use a bunch of English spinach and chop and sauté the stalks in place of the kale, adding the leaves later.

 

Great as a light meal for 6-8 or a main for 4-6. Also delicious cut into bite size pieces, topped with the olive paste and served as canapes or party finger food.

    This was a very satisfactory tasting recipe, thank you for creating this one. I felt great about eating such wonderful ingredients in a paleo way. Did not feel deprived at all. I choose all feta, only because I struggled to find provolone in U.K.. amazing!!

  • Yum!  I would use less

    Yum!  I would use less almonds next time as my partner thought it was too 'nutty' but it was a hit!
