Juicy Crispy Lebanese Spinach Fatayer loaded with vitamins? You can make it in 90 minutes & have one of the Best Healthy Recipes for Dinner.
When I say Spinach Fatayer, I say a meal loaded with all the vitamins you can think of to enrich your blood and body. Back when I was a kid, my mom used to make fatayer on a Saturday (what’s the point I don’t know). I remember the smell of the fatayer covering most of the house. Alongside spinach fatayer, she used to fill some with kishik (ground dried yogurt and burgol), meat, cheese, and water crest.
The spinach fatayer aka pie is filled with spinach, along with onions, pomegranate molasses, and lemon juice. It is seasoned with summak to strengthen the sour taste, salt, and pepper. They make an awesome addition to a mezze table.
Spinach is immensely rich in minerals and vitamins such as vitamin A, vitamin C, K1, folic acid, iron, and calcium. It supports as well our bodies by providing other minerals vitamins including potassium, magnesium, and vitamins B6, B9, and E. As it is high in fiber, spinach supports as well the digestive system.
No, it is not easy, it is a super quick easy recipe! Making these pies does not take time nor do you need to put in a lot of effort. All you need to do is knead the dough and have your filling ready and you are good to go.
You can serve these fatayer baked or fried. I always love to go with the healthier option, that’s why I brush them with olive oil and bake them in the oven. However, frying them in hot oil gives them a super crispy texture. I tend to make bigger size fatayer when I go with the baking option and prepare them in small bites if I opt for frying them.
Absolutely yes. Once prepared, put them in the freezer over a tray. Once frozen, you can easily transfer them to a zipper-lock bag. If you want to fry them try to take them out of the freezer 1 hour before frying.
