Spinach and Feta spring rolls with Zazziki


The idea to make this snack or dish came to my mind after looking into my fridge and seeing leftovers of phyllo, feta and spinach... Such a simple and easy snack to make!!!

Ok, Let's start from Zazziki, Greek sauce though Turkish share a similar recipe and call it Cacik! :)

What we need for zazziki:

200ml of yoghurt
2 cloves of crushed or chopped garlic
1 small seeded and grated cucumber
salt and pepper
1/4tea spoon of cumin and oregano
1 tbspn of olive oil
1 tea poon of chopped dill or parsley

What we have to do:

1. Mix yogurt with garlic, salt, pepper, cumin, olive oil and dill.

2. Add cucumber, mix and chill. 

Now it's time for spring rolls:

What we need:

phyllo sheets cut into triangles

spinach

feta, crumbled

small onion

2 cloves of garlic

salt and pepper

oregano

oil for deep frying

What we have to do:

1. Cut phyllo into trianges and brush with water ( it helps to keep the shape of roll when frying).

2. Fry onion and garlic, then mix with frozen or fresh and boiled spinach, add feta, salt and pepper. Mix it.

3. Take a bit of the filling and put on a wider part of a phyllo triangle, bend the sides and roll to the end. 

4. Preheat the oil and deep fry the rolls for 2 - 3  min. Serve!
