Today I have an easy Greek spinach pie recipe to share with you! A dish like this is a little unexpected for summertime, but I have a good reason, I promise. It all started with a little bag of spinach from my freezer…

But first, you may be wondering, what is Greek spinach pie? It’s a savory Greek pie, similar to a crustless spinach quiche, with a flaky crust. It’s also often called spanakopita pie. The traditional filling includes chopped spinach, feta cheese, onions or scallions, egg, and seasoning.

In most spinach pie recipes, the crust is made out of a layere phyllo pastry dough. Sometimes it’s even layered inside. My version is low carb and gluten-free, but just as delicious. I promise the whole family will love this easy spinach pie!

The Idea for Gluten-free Greek Spinach Pie

The easy spinach pie recipe started as many of my recipes do – from a need to use up something in my freezer. You see, my freezer is seriously overflowing! I went waaaay overboard preparing freezer meals while I was pregnant, anticipating that I’d need a ton of them when the baby was born.

To my surprise, I’ve been fortunateenough to have a little angel that sleeps through the night most of the time, even though she’s only seven weeks old. (Seven weeks tomorrow, to be exact.) She goes approximately a six to seven hour stretch, from midnight to 6 or 7 in the morning! Amazing.

My first kid was (and still is) an excellent sleeper from the start, too. I didn’t think I’d be lucky enough to have the second be the same way. I am so, so grateful.

What this means is that I’ve had enough sleep (read: sanity!) to actually get stuff done during the day. And I love it!

Aside from releasing my low carb meal planning starter kit and low carb dinners cookbook, I’ve been busy, busy, busy churning out new recipes.

The only downside is, I’ve been cooking so many new foodsthat I’ve barely made a dent in my huge freezer stash! It’s so full that it’s practically impossible to get at anything. Oops.

This week, I’ve made it a mission to try to free up some freezer space. We’re having several freezer meals for dinner, including pesto chicken bake with cauliflower and my favorite low carb meatloaf.

Having freezer meals every day is boring though, and I still couldn’t resist creating a Greek spinach pie recipe! I decided to compromise by developing one that uses up at least one ingredient from my freezer, and otherwise doesn’t require buying anything new at the store. (My fridge has been getting pretty full, too.)

After digging through what was in there (and nearly having half the contents collapse onto me in the process!), I found a one-pound bag of spinach in the back of the freezer and a container of feta in the fridge.Right away, I knew I’d be creating a low carb Greek pie.

An Easy Greek Spinach Pie Recipe with Feta Cheese

This easy spinach pie is reminiscent of spanakopita, but in pie form. I fell in love with those little hand pies when I worked at a Greek restaurant during college, which inspired me to create theseGreek spinach stuffed mushrooms with feta and garliclast year.

Those are delicious, but I didn’t have mushrooms. Plus, I wanted something with a crust.This easy spinach feta pie solved both problems!

You can also use this savory low carb crust for all sorts of other things. It would be perfect to use for a low carb quiche! I’m definitely planning to re-purpose it for other recipes. In fact, you can find the separate almond flour pie crust recipe here, which you can use for both sweet and savory pie.

Spinach is such a versatile vegetable. I love that I can take advantage of its nutritional content, even after long-term storage. Frozen spinach is available year-round. And, Ilove showing you how delicious it can be in recipes.

Feta cheese, made in Greece, is crumbly, and famous for its use in spinach pie and other cheese pies. Of course, it was a must in this one.

Voila! The idea forthis Greek spinach pie was born. To my delight, I had all the ingredients needed in my fridge and pantry.

About the Ingredients for Easy Spinach Pie

I’m sure there are plenty of variations for making an easy spinach pie recipe healthy. My version uses three cheeses in the filling, so you can bet it will be decadent! At the same time, I managed to keep it healthy, too.

There aren’t too many ingredients needed for this spinach pie recipe. And, it’s naturally gluten-free and low carb.

For the crust, you’ll need:

  • Almond flour
  • Sea salt
  • Coconut oil
  • Egg

And for the filling:

  • Frozen spinach
  • Feta cheese
  • Cream cheese
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Garlic
  • Fresh dill
  • Egg

See? Super simple, common ingredients that are easy to find.

And what about how to make spinach pie using these easy things found in your fridge and pantry? That’s easy, too…

How to Make Spinach Pie Healthy and Gluten-free

One of my favorite things about this recipe is that, even though it looks fancy, it’s mostly hands-off.

It takes just a few minutes to assemble the crust. Press it into a pan and pop it into the oven.

While the crust bakes, you can prep thespinach feta pie filling. It’s as easy as stirring it all together!

Transfer the filling into the crust, and bake again. You’ll have about half an hour to do other things around the house while the oven does all the work.

How To Store Spinach Feta Pie

This low carb spinach pie has been very versatile to serve in various meals. It’s great to serve to a crowd or even if it’s just for your family.

Any leftovers refrigerate and reheat very well. (I actually like it cold, too!)

And, spinach pie makes an excellent grab-and-go breakfast or snack. If you have a couple of servings, it’s also a delicious and satisfying vegetarian lunch or dinner! It will keep you full, with 3 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein per serving.

You can store the Greek spinach pie in the fridge for about a week.

Longer than that, it does great in the freezer. I usually cut it into slices or squares before freezing, so that I can grab one or two at a time when I’m on the go.

Either way, bake the spinach pie before freezing. If you want to reheat the whole thing afterward, just thaw it in the fridge first.

Needless to say, I’m quite thankful for that little bag of spinach in the back of my freezer! We wouldn’t have this easy spinach pie recipe without it.
