Spinach and feta polpettine





Ingredients

spinach
feta
egg
breadcrumbs
Olive oil for frying
thyme (optional)

Wash and cook a big bunch of spinach, then chop as finely as you can/wish. Place in a bowl and add some feta (about 100 g for each bunch of spinach), one egg and as much breadcrumbs as you need to make a mixture that can be shaped into small walnut size balls. Pan fry in olive oil turning them often until cooked. Place on some kitchen paper lined with fresh thyme (if using) to remove excess oil and give the polpettine a hint of thyme flavor. Serve hot, or even cold. My kids love them!

  6. I love the idea of making "meat" balls without the meat - just spinach and feta.
