Main ingredients

  • 4 flour tortillas about 7 inches in diameter
  • 1/4 white onion diced
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic diced
  • 7 cups spinach chopped
  • to taste salt and pepper

Egg mixture


  • Saute the onion in olive oil and butter on medium heat, for about 3-4 minutes. Stir in garlic and spinach and saute for another 3-4 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Transfer spinach onto the plate, and place in a cold place for a few minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the egg mixture by whisking the rest of the ingredients together.
  • Now, it's time to remove extra liquid from spinach. Simply take a handful of spinach, and try to squeeze the juices out with your hands. Transfer dry spinach into another bowl.
  • Add egg mixture to the spinach. Stir. Divide the filling into 4 parts. Spread 1/4 of the filling onto a half of tortilla and fold the other half over. Fry on ungreased frying pan, on low heat for 4 minutes on each side.
  • Serve with yogurt, tzatziki sauce or sour cream.
