Spinach And Ricotta Filling

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 bunch spinach washed and shredded
  • 2 eggs
  • 250 grams ricotta crumbled
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • chili flakes
  • salt and pepper
  • 100 grams feta crumbled
  • sumac

Sourdough Topping

  • 120 grams sourdough with no crust
  • 3 tablespoons white sesame seeds
  • 60 grams butter melted

Notes from Rouba

  • Packaged ricotta is usually very moist and can make your food very watery. I buy mine from the Deli section in wedges as it’s much drier. Otherwise, you will need to strain it well.
  • You can use frozen spinach instead of fresh.
  • It’s important to drain any excess liquid out of the spinach mixture.


Step 1.

Start by heating a saucepan and sautéing the onion and garlic until they become softened. Next, add the shredded spinach and cook on high heat until wilted. Drain and let the spinach mixture cool down.

In a separate bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Mix in the crumbled ricotta, nutmeg, salt, and pepper until well combined. Stir in the cooled spinach mixture. Pour the mixture into a 20cm shallow oven-proof dish and spoon it evenly.

Step 2.

To make the sourdough Crumbs, process the sourdough chunks into fine crumbs. Mix in sesame seeds and drizzle the melted butter over the crumb mixture and stir until it's evenly distributed and moist. Spread the breadcrumb topping over the spinach and cheese mixture in the baking dish.

Step 3.

Bake at 180° for 35-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes. Finally, top it with crumbled feta, sprinkle with tangy sumac and finish with a drizzle of olive oil.
