Sweet potato, walnut & spinach filo pie


  • 3 large sweet potato
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 200 g spinach
  • 50 g walnuts
  • 1 pack filo pastry


  • Pre heat your oven to 180c and when hot bake the sweet potatoes in the skins until soft
  • Whilst the potatoes are cooking gently cook your diced onion in a little oil, once they are softened add the spinach and cook for 1 more minute and set aside
  • Once the potatoes are cooked let them cool slightly and peel the skins off and mixed the potato flesh with the onions and spinach
  • Season with salt and pepper and leave to cool
  • To assemble line a cake tine or oven proof dish with one sheet of filo making sure there is some pastry hanging over the edge and brush lightly with oil
  • Repeat this process with 2 or 3 more sheets of filo
  • Spoon the sweet potato mixture into the lined dish gently pushing the mixture right to the edges
  • Fold the overhanging edges over the top of the pie, scrunching the edges as you go, this does not need to be done neatly
  • Brush the top with a little more oil and bake in the oven until golden brown
  • Serve with some steamed veg or salad.
