Meatless Monday with Vegan Spanakopita

Welcome (back) to the Miratel blog for another edition of our Meatless Monday  vegan recipe share. Miratel took the Meatless Monday pledge to support reducing meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve the health of our planet. We consider our support of this great movement part of our CSR business strategies as it spreads awareness of the impact of our food choices on our environment.

Greek food is not generally thought of as being very vegan-friendly as many classic Greek dishes tend to incorporate meat and/or cheese. So naturally, you would assume something like Spanakopita – although vegetarian-friendly – would definitely be off a vegan’s list with its eggs and cheese. Well you would assume wrong as our recipe today is for a vegan Spanakopita that changes that assumption. This amazing dish is perfect for brunch, lunch or a light dinner when served alongside a fresh green salad or your favourite hot vegetable. This incredibly tasty recipe comes courtesy of Gabrielle St. Claire  of Eat Drink Shrink via One Green Planet, a website I highly recommend you check out for all things good for the planet.

INGREDIENTS (serves 6)

  • 1/2 of 1 16-ounce package of vegan filo dough, frozenvegan spanakopita
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 2 10-ounce bags fresh spinach
  • Juice from 1/2 of 1 lemon
  • 1 bunch kale, remove stems, slice, massage
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/4 cup vegan mozzarella
  • 2 teaspoons dill
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup vegan egg replacer

PREPARATION

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a pie or circular pan with olive oil.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add diced onion and cook until translucent. Add washed spinach and kale, cook until heated through. Add the squeeze of lemon. Remove and let cool slightly.
  3. In a bowl combine spinach mixture, garlic, vegan cheese, dill, nutmeg, and salt. Make the vegan eggs with almond milk according to the package.
  4. To assemble, lay 4-6 filo sheets covering every angle on the pan. Brush with melted butter. Continue to arrange filo sheets in a clockwork fashion. Butter the tops of each new pair of filo dough as you go. When all sheets have been used, place spinach mixture in the center and spread into an even layer. Carefully fold phyllo excess filo inward and layer 4 or more sheets on top tucking the sheets in. Precut the Spanakopita and butter the top. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until edges are golden and center is set.
