Spanakopita (spinach pie)
2 lbs spinach
2/3 lb diced green onions
1 batch diced dill
1 finely chopped leek
2 eggs
1 1/2cup olive oil
1 lb filo pastry
Fyllo (or Filo) Pastry:
2 cups flour
3/4 cup warm water
1/2 tspn salt
3/4 cup vegetable oil

Clean and boil the spinach lightly. Strain it well and chop it. Brown the green onions and the leek lightly in a pot using half the olive oil . Remove from the heat and add the dill, the eggs, the spinach and salt & pepper. Oil a pan and spread half the sheets of filo sheets. Spread the spinach mix on top and then cover with the other sheets. Oil the top and bake in medium oven for about 1 hr.
Fyllo (or Filo) Pastry: Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and work the dough until it is soft, not firm or stiff. Make 6 even sized balls, and place on a plate with flour on it. Sprinkle some flour on top of the balls and place in the fridge for about an hour until the dough is thoroughly cooled. When ready, spread some flour on your rolling surface and roll out the balls of dough to about 6" (15cm) diameter. Then work the dough with your fingers, by picking it up and stretching it, to get it as thin as you require.
