Makes 12


2 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, finely diced
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
500g frozen spinach, thawed
¼ cup mint, finely chopped
1 tsp sea salt
½ tsp pepper
3 scoops Axis PhytoGreens
2 eggs
250g feta
Tzatziki, to serve

For pastry
100g wholemeal plain flour
200g self raising flour
160g butter, cubed
½ tsp salt
3 tbsp greek yoghurt


  • Place the flours, butter and salt into a food processor and pulse to form a coarse breadcrumb-like texture.
  • Add the yoghurt and pulse until a rough dough forms.
  • Place dough onto a floured bench and form into a disc, wrap in clingfilm and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, squeeze out excess moisture from the spinach and place into a medium bowl.
  • Heat olive oil in a small frypan, add onion and garlic and sauté until softened.
  • Add the onion mix to the spinach with the mint, seasoning, Axis PhytoGreens, egg and feta and mix well.
  • Preheat oven to 200C.
  • Roll out the pastry to a thickness of 3mm and cut into 10cm rounds. Place a heaped tbsp of filling in the centre of the pastry rounds and brush the rim of the pastry with water.
  • Halve the pastry to form a half moon and crimp the edges to seal.
  • Place pies on a baking paper lined baking tray and bake for 20 minutes, or until golden.
  • Allow to cool slightly before serving with tzatziki on the side.
