Dumplings with spinach and feta

Yes, yesterday it was a dumpling day in my kitchen. I've already posted a recipe of strawberry dumplings and today have a look at a more savory version. I used the same dough recipe but the filling and the sauce were different. And of course, it tasted really great!!!
What we need:

for the dough:

500ml of flour
2 eggs
5 tbps of milk
a pinch of salt

for the filling:

a handful of fresh spinach
100 gr of feta
2 cloves of garlic
pepper
for the sauce:
2 cloves of garlic
1 tbps of butter
1 tbsp of flour
200ml of cream or milk
some spinach
permesan cheese ( optional)
salt and pepper to taste
a pinch of nutmeg
What we have to do:

1. Mix the dough ingredients and knead until it forms a ball of daugh and then leave it to rest for 30 min.
2. Chop clean spinach and pour boiling water on them. Then drain the water and mix spinach with crumbled feta. Add chopped or grated garlic and pepper.
3. Roll out the dough. Cut into squares and add a teaspoon of filling onto each square. Then fold each square to form triangles. Press the sides carefully.
4. Put the dumplings into a boiling salted water and boil for 3-4 min. Then drain.
5. For the sauce, melt butter in a pan. Then add chopped garlic. One minute later add flour and mix it well. Then add milk, salt and pepper and nutmeg. Boil for 3-4 min.
6. When serving put the dumplings in layers with sauce and fresh spinach. Grate some permesan on the top if you are in a cheese mood!!! Enjoy!

  1. Ooo, aprašei mano vienus mėgstamiausių virtinukų. :) Tik aš vagiau su špinatais ir rikota/varške, su feta neragavau. Turbūt dar skaniau, nes fetos skonis stipresnis negu rikotos.
