SPANAKOPITA 

This is my version of this greek classic dish . Making it in a whole pie versus individual servings makes it much easier and faster to prepare, but of course you can choose to make it individually if making it for a party as an appetizer .I also substitute part of the feta for tofu making it higher in protein and healthier, but you can choose to add more feta or omit the tofu.  My special touch is adding the everything bagel seasoning which can make you even eat rocks hehehehehe.....just my opinion . I hope you can enjoy making my humble version for loved ones ;)
