- 12-14 sheets (#4) phyllo, thawed
- 4 oz (113g) salted butter, melted
For the filling:
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 large onion, finely chopped
- 1 and 1/2 pounds (680g) mushrooms
- 3-4 garlic cloves, grated
- 8 oz (230g) spinach leaves
- 8 oz (230g) feta cheese
- salt, to taste
- freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme or oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
Make the filling:
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add the olive oil with the onions and a pinch of salt. Cook until soft and golden. About 7-8 minutes.
Clean the mushrooms with a damp kitchen towel and remove the stems. Save the stems for another recipe. Slice the mushrooms.
Add the mushrooms to the pan and cook over medium-high heat until tender and until their juices have dried up. Add the garlic and warm through until fragrant.
Season with salt and pepper and add the spinach. Cook until wilted and until most of the juices have evaporated.
Remove the pan from the heat and add the feta and oregano. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.
Assemble the Spirals:
Layer two phyllo sheets on top of each other and drizzle butter between the layers. Drizzle butter over the top layer. (see video)
Spread 3 heaping tablespoons of the mushroom filling allong the widest side of the sheet (over the bottom third). Roll it upward to form a log.
Roll inward to form a spiral. Place the spirals on a baking tray lined with parchment paper and brush the spirals all around with the remaining melted butter.
Set the air fryer to 340 °F and cook the spirals for 15 minutes or until golden and crisp.
Serve with tzatziki. Kali Orexi!
Note: Leftover phyllo can be wrapped in plastic and refrigerated up to a week.
Freezer Instructions: Assemble the mushroom spirals and place them on the tray lined with parchment paper. Place them in the freezer until frozen solid and then transfer the uncooked pies into freezer safe bags. The pies can be placed in the air fryer while still frozen. Cook them at 340°F for 20-25 minutes. They are ready when they're golden and crisp.
The pies will keep fresh frozen up to 3 months.
