Need an easy vegetarian recipe that's fancy enough to serve at a dinner party? This is it. These mushroom, spinach, and feta pies are incredibly simple yet totally delicious. They're sure to be a hit with vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.
This mushroom, spinach and feta pie is a really simple dish. But it's a wonderful thing to serve if you have a dinner party where a vegetarian is attending.
It makes for a great simple entree that everyone can enjoy, or can be served as an amazing vegetarian appetizer.
I know quite often the thought of catering to a vegetarian diner can be confusing and daunting - thanks in no small part to my pet peeve of people who call themselves vegetarian and yet eat fish or some other type of meat.
But really it doesn't need to be. It also doesn't necessarily mean you have to cook a completely separate dish just for the vegetarian.
This Greek-inspired mushroom, spinach and feta pie is so full of flavor that I guarantee the meat eaters in the party will be satisfied (I should know, I tested it on my meat eater husband).
If you're looking for some even fancier dinner party worthy vegetarian meals, check out these creations:
- Place a large frying pan over a medium heat and add the olive oil and onions. Cook the onions until golden.
- Add the mushrooms, garlic and salt and pepper to taste, and cook until the mushrooms are softened before adding the white wine. Simmer in the wine for 10 minutes.
- Add the spinach and cook until wilted and set aside to cool.
- Preheat the oven to 355 Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius) and line 2 baking trays with grease-proof baking paper.
- Cut the pastry into quarters. Top one quarter with the mushroom mixture and crumble a quarter of the feta on top. Top with one of the pastry quarters and press to seal the edges. Repeat with the remaining pastry and mixture.
- Cut a small hole in the center of the top of each pie and brush with beaten egg.
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden and puffed.
