Meera Sodha’s vegan recipe for leek, cabbage and spinach filo pie | The new vegan
A pie inspired by the greens-packed pastries of Greece
I’ve always enjoyed the green pies of Greece, hortopita and spanakopita. The audacity to squeeze as many leafy greens into a meal as possible is something that resonates with me. Having been brought up on various Indian saag dishes, I am used to seeing pan-defying amounts of robust, thriving leaves wilt down to form extraordinarily gentle and flavourful meals. And although this recipe isn’t a recipe for a Greek pie, it was inspired by one and was an attempt to fit as many greens (of sorts) into a pie with an enjoyable result.
