Spanakopita Spiral 12 Steps
In a large pan over medium-high heat, heat up the olive oil and sauté the onion until translucent.
Add the garlic and spinach, stir and cook for about 5 minutes or until spinach is soft and cooked. Take the pan off the heat and set aside to cool down.
In a bowl, combine together the cooled spinach mixture, ricotta, feta, dill and green onion.
Mix well and add the lemon juice. Season the mixture with salt and pepper.
Preheat the oven to 400°F and lightly grease a skillet or a round cake pan.
Lay one sheet of phyllo pastry on your worktop, with the long side facing you. Brush with melted butter and cover with a second sheet of pastry. Brush with butter again and cover with another layer of phyllo.
Take about three tablespoons of the spinach and cheese mixture. Lay it out along the length of your layered phyllo sheet until it is evenly spread out with a little space at either end.
Roll the phyllo sheet tightly around the spinach filling and keep rolling until it makes a long tube.
Curl the tube around itself into a spiral and place it in the middle of your greased skillet.
Repeat the process and make all the rolls. Repeat the steps and continue making logs and wrap them around the first coil.
Brush the top with butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Enjoy!
