My family and I love traveling to new places. Last year we toured several countries in Europe, finishing in Italy. The Mediterranean is one of our favorite places to visit, not only for the pretty sites, but also for the food, which is typically very simple and made with fresh, quality ingredients.
Greece is the next mediterranean country on our travel bucket list. You’ve probably seen those gorgeous photos on Pinterest of turquoise waters and those white-washed buildings cascading down the side of the mountainside in Santorini. It truly looks like heaven on earth! It’s also home to some of the best food. My husband says he was born in the wrong country since he loves mediterranean food so much! He’s constantly begging me to make some of those classic dishes, so I finally obliged with this phyllo wrapped pastry filled with spinach and cheese, aka Spanakopita.
Since today is National Spinach Day, I can think of no better way to celebrate than with this yummy dish! The crispy pastry and creamy spinach filling makes such a delicious combo. Using fresh Taylor Farms Organic Baby Spinach instead of boxes of frozen, makes the filling even more flavorful too.
Taylor Farms Organic Baby Spinach is one of my favorite greens to eat. The taste is mild, yet it’s full of fiber and nutrients, plus high in vitamins A and C. I throw it into smoothies, soups, and omelets to get the extra boost of nutrition!
