Guest Post: Spinach and Feta Turnovers

I have a special surprise for you today: I am so honored to be guest posting over at Just One Cookbook! Although Nami and I have never met I feel like we are friends. Even through emails and blog posts I can tell that she is a warm, kind soul who always tries to make time for everyone. I always enjoy emailing with Nami about blogging and food, and I want to try every single gorgeous dish that she makes. I feel so lucky to have Nami as a blog friend. Living in Israel, I’ve been exposed to so many new cuisines. Bourekas, a kind of savory turnover, have become a staple of my diet and are the inspiration for this recipe. They are common throughout the Middle East, Mediterranean, and North Africa and come with all kinds of fillings, from potato to “pizza.” Spinach and feta is one of my favorite flavor combinations, and it works perfectly here. These are great for brunch, but work just as well as a breakfast on the run. I like to freeze some to reheat them for an easy snack. Spinach and Feta Turnovers

  1. Congratulations again on your first cookbook Katherine! I’m honored to have you today and share the delicious recipe on my blog! I’m going to make this myself very soon. And this cookbook is a must buy for everyone who loves using puff pastry!! 😉

  2. Girls I love your collaboration guest post, its so exciting! I hope to make your turnover soon. Can you recommend me some other veggie instead of spinach, that would be awesome!

    again, thanks for sharing Katherine!

    • Thanks Helene!! Any leafy green would be great here, like chard or kale. Sorrel would be nice and would give it a citrusy taste so you could omit the lemon juice. Or you can completely change up the filling. Make it mushrooms and onions or sausage and cheddar. I don’t know, just throwing out ideas 🙂 I bet you could make an incredible Indian-inspired turnover!

  3. I love spinach and feta together and your turnovers look great. Off to Nami’s now!

  4. Congrats Katherine on your first cook book. It looks amazing.
    I have had something similar to these turnovers at a Lebanese restaurant and I loved them especially their seasoning. Hopping over Nami for the recipe.

  5. The turnovers look great, they look so like samosas 🙂 I am reading about your cookbook…that is so great….has it come out yet? Where can I find the details?

    • Thank you Suchi! They are a bit like samosas, which I also love! But baked instead of fried (ooh but I bet they’d be amazing fried! I see you found the cookbook details – I hope you enjoy it!!
