For the filling

  • Finely chop the onion, spring onions, garlic, dill, mint, and set them aside until needed.
  • In a frying pan over medium heat add the olive oil, and as soon as it gets hot, add the spinach and sauté it for 2-3 minutes until it wilts.

  • Then, add the spring onions, mint, dill, lemon zest, salt, and pepper.

  • Butter and flour a round 28 cm baking pan.
  • Divide the dough into two even parts.
  • With a rolling pin, roll out the first dough piece onto your working surface, after dusting it with flour.
  • Put it into the baking pan so that it sticks out a little, and then add the filling. Spread it so to cover the whole surface.
  • Place the eggs into the filling and add the cheese mix on top.
  • Roll out the second dough piece with the rolling pin.
  • Cover the filling with the dough that you rolled out, spread with a little olive oil, sprinkle the sesame seeds, turn the edges of the dough inwards, and press with your hands.
  • Bake in the oven for 40-50 minutes.

Tip
