How to make Spanakopita Quesadilla

This recipe comes together quickly. To make this spanakopita quesadilla, you will need:

  • 2 tortillas
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3 cups spinach, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons feta, crumbled
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped
  • salt and pepper

Spanakopita Quesadilla sprinkled with feta

To start, I heat up olive oil in a skillet and add 1 tortilla. I sprinkle it with spinach, feta, dill and salt on pepper and add the other tortilla. I cook it on medium heat for about 2 minutes and then flip and cook for 2 more minutes. Then I slice it into quarters and serve it with tzatziki.

Easy, right?

  1. I just found your blog and this recipe is very interesting to me. Not sure if you’ll get this note or not because the post is older but I do have a question if you have a minute. Do you use fresh or frozen spinach and does the feta cheese melt? Thanks, Emie BTW, Your photography is amazing.

      Hi! I use fresh spinach for the quesadillas. The feta gets softer and melts a bit but it doesn’t melt the way mozzarella cheese does. You can add some shredded mozzarella to get some gooey cheese action going on in it! Super yummy!

  2. Thank you so much!!
