I love spinach. And I love Greek food… I have been craving some Spanakopita (traditional Greek spinach pie) for the last few days, but never really got a chance to go to the supermarket and get some phyllo dough. And then it occurred to me that I had some flour tortillas on hand. And I happened to have some spinach in the refrigerator too…
In less than half an hour I was enjoying a delicious spinach quesadilla with a Greek twist. Of course, I shared with Stan. 🙂 We both loved it.
Greek cuisine is wonderful. Although I have never been to Greece, I have tried A LOT of what their cuisine has to offer, here, in the US. You probably have too… Gyros, bakhlava, stuffed grape leaves (dolmades), and souvlaki with tzatziki just make my head spin… And the recipe for Greek Chicken-Lemon Soup is coming soon on Cooktoria — It’s one of the best soups!
When buying feta cheese, try to find the kind that is sold as a block, not the crumbled kind. The difference in taste is quite significant. I have a post about feta cheese that includes buying tips. Feel free to check it out. 🙂 Or, follow this Amazon link to buy Sheep’s Milk White Feta Cheese that I recommend.
So, I encourage you to try these crispy, Greek inspired quesadillas stuffed with creamy spinach. And, hey — Here is an idea: put on some Greek music on YouTube while cooking and while eating! Why not? It’s very good.
