Spinach jerky with cheese and raisins
Today's recipe is inspired by a Greek cuisine dish, tiropitas or tyropitas, made with filo pastry and stuffed with egg and cheese, but which Lola (author of the Loleta blog) has adapted to her taste and makes with spinach, cheese and you pass A great dish to enjoy at any dinner and that you will prepare in a few minutes!
This is one of the versions of Lent that I like to prepare at home. At this time of year I try to put traditional recipes into practice. We have a gastronomy that is very rich in traditions and Lent and the vigil offer infinite possibilities throughout Spain.
But I also really like international cuisine, so today we are going to prepare a Greek cuisine dish , a mix of various specialties that I have adapted to my taste. In Greece you can find it stuffed with cheese and fried, or with a bread dough and stuffed with spinach.
This today is my personal version , because instead of just using eggs and cheese, I have included raisins and spinach . I love the taste of raisins with feta cheese, but if you want you can leave them out and it will be just as good.
In addition, instead of fried, it is prepared in the oven because I find it lighter and easier to prepare. To prepare it like this you do not need a special mold. I have used my 24 cm Bra low saucepan as a mold because it is perfect for this recipe.

Se ve deliciosa!!! Hay que ensayar a ver cómo me queda🤗
He visto que la sarten que tenéis en la foto corresponde al modelo Efficient Plus, más moderna que la Efficient, no sé si disponéis de ella en vuestro catálogo

Deliciosa!!! Añadir una curiosidad: sí es de espinacas deja de ser “tirópita” para convertirse en “spanakópita” (versión con y sin feta) =D y si es “jortópita”, es de verduritas silvestres, normalmente con mucho hinojo.

Entre los ingredientes figura 1 huevo batido como opcional, y en el desarrollo de la receta no se pone. En cambio, se menciona miel como opcional. ¿Hay algún error?
Interesante receta. Parece fácil de preparar y ligera. ¡la probare!
