You know what’s great about getting a box of fresh vegetables straight from the farm? You get a box of fresh vegetables straight from the farm. That’s what I get every Friday in my CSA box. It’s great. Really. That being said, I don’t get to choose what I get in my box. You get what you get. Whatever’s in season or is ready to come out of the ground. Sometimes you get a lot of one thing (yea, sweet potatoes I’m looking at you!) and it needs to be consumed almost immediately. That’s what happened last week with my spinach. We had lots of it. Enter spanakopita.
Spanakopita is basically a greek spinach and feta pie wrapped in phyllo dough layered with butter or olive oil. You’ve probably eaten a mini spanakopita at a party or two. They’re easy to make and just exotic enough to make a light and interesting dinner.
