Spinach and Cottage Cheese Triangles Recipe
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach – thawed, drained and squeezed dry
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (4 ounce) package feta cheese, crumbled

  • 1 (16 ounce) package phyllo dough

How to make Spinach and Cottage Cheese Triangles:

  • Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Slowly cook and stir onion until tender, about 5 minutes. Mix in spinach and salt. Stir in feta cheese, cottage cheese and egg. Cook and stir until thickened, 5 to 10 minutes. Reduce heat to simmer.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  • Unroll phyllo dough sheets one at a time on a flat surface. Brush with unsalted butter. Cut into strips approximately 5 inches wide. Place 1 tablespoon of the onion, spinach and feta mixture at one end of each dough strip. Fold the end of the strip over the filling so that it forms a triangle. Continue folding the strip in triangles until a small, triangular stuffed pastry remains. Brush with unsalted butter. Repeat with remaining phyllo dough.
  • Arrange stuffed triangles on a large baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven 12 to 15 minutes, until golden brown. Serve warm.
