3- cups - Flour
cup - Extra virgin olive oil

5 tablespoons - Paprika
3 tablespoons - Granulated onion
2 tablespoons - Granulated garlic

Prepare dough

  • Put the flour in a bowl and make a hollow or depression in the center.

  • Divide the dough in 10-11 equal parts. Form the equal parts into balls and set aside.

Prepare spinach

  • Combine the dry ingredients.

  • Wash the spinach and shake out the excess water. Place the spinach into a large bowel.

  • Sprinkle on the dry ingredients mixture (paprika, onion, garlic, cyan pepper, salt and ground pepper).

  • Toss the spinach and the spices to coat the wet spinach leaves.

  • Pour the olive oil over the spinach. Toss gently to coat the spinach evenly in the spices and oil.

Make the spinach pies

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. On a lightly floured board, roll out each ball of dough into circles about 8 inches in diameter.

  • Place about 1 cup of the prepared spinach leaves on each dough circle.

  • Fold dough in half, completely enclosing spinach and crimp edges to hold together.
