Can you believe this spinach pie is only 3 points per slice!? That’s for blue, green and purple!
If you’re planning on grilling some chicken (or steak) this would make a perfect side dish!
I haven’t worked with phyllo dough before so I was somewhat intimidated. There really wasn’t any need to be.
It’s delicate, but pretty easy to work with.
The most important thing is to let the phyllo dough defrost in the fridge the night before.
It needs to properly defrost, that will make it easy to work with.
I also let the chopped spinach defrost in the fridge overnight. I put the boxes in a bowl because liquid tends to drain from the spinach.
One way I kept this lower in points was by not using all of the phyllo dough.
Also, instead of using butter on the phyllo sheet layers I used oil spray. That saved a lot of points!
The only butter I used in this recipe was to sauté the onions and garlic. I only used 1 teaspoon of butter which was 2 points.
Onions and garlic give the spinach a lot of flavor. I also used cheese, dill and parsley.
This spinach pie is delicious and much lower in points than a traditional spinach pie.
