Spinach and Feta Bourekas

Spinach and Feta Bourekas with Cucumber-Tomato Salad and Za’atar

Recipe Details


Middle Eastern bourekas, or cheese-stuffed pastries, meet classic Greek spanakopita. We stuff puff pastry squares with feta, ricotta, and spinach, then dust with sesame seeds and bake until golden. To counter all the cheesy goodness, the turnovers are served with a cucumber-tomato salad. Everything is finished with a sprinkle of za’atar (a tangy spice blend) to complete the inspiration.
