About this Recipe

This spinach pie (Albanian Pite me Spinaq) is one of the most common pies which is similar to Albanian byrek and always tastes so good when made with homemade filo pastry! It can be eaten fresh and hot but will mostly be served when it is cooled and the water has soaked into the pastry. Great the next day for lunch.

Have you tried?
You can replace spinach with large amounts of fresh basil and parsley, finely chopped. Or, you can also use a tin of spinach puree with the same tasty outcomes!
