Spinach and Cheese Savory Pie

Poured pie with spinach

Homemade pies are often cooked for longer than desired. But luckily, there are "quick and easy" recipes. One such example is a spinach and cheese savory pie that I bake in the oven. The secret is not in the store-bought dough, but in the fact that this pie is yeast-free and therefore cooks much faster. And the taste is just as good as our usual pies. The filling is very summery, yet satisfying. My family always enjoys eating it.

Prepare all the necessary ingredients for baking a poured pie with spinach and cheese in the oven. All products must be of the highest quality and fresh. Ideally, of course, buy spinach at the market in the greenery department. But you can also find high-quality fresh spinach in large supermarkets. When choosing Adyghe cheese, be sure to pay attention to the composition, so that there are no substitutes for milk fat. The same goes for sour cream. Choose the fat content to your taste. I used thick sour cream with 20% fat content, but any will do. I always buy butter with a fat content of 82.5% and never replace it with margarine. Take the butter out of the refrigerator 15 minutes before starting to make the pie.

Separate the spinach leaves from the hard stems, remove any low-quality ones. Rinse the spinach thoroughly under running water and dry it well. I usually use a greens spinner, which is a very convenient device, especially for leafy greens. But you can simply use a kitchen towel to blot all the spinach leaves. We don't need any excess moisture. The weight indicated in the ingredients is for the prepared spinach leaves without the stems.

Mix the grated Adyghe cheese and slightly cooled spinach. Salt to taste. If you have frozen spinach, just squeeze out the excess water and immediately mix it with the cheese, it does not need further heat treatment. And if you want to slightly reduce the calorie content of the pie, feel free to replace the Adyghe cheese with cottage cheese.

Sift the flour with the baking powder into the dough, add salt and knead thoroughly. The amount of flour depends on the size of the eggs and the thickness of your sour cream. You may need to add a little more flour. The dough should be thick enough and not too runny.
