Fatayer With Spinach Recipe

Fatayer With Spinach Recipe

Fatayer is an Arabic word for a dough that can be stuffed with meat, cheese or spinach and closed up like an envelope or a triangle. They can be perfect finger foods or appetizers. They can be served hot or cold. They can also be made a few days in advance and reheated to serve.


6 cups of flour

1 cup of milk

1 cup of vegetable oil

½ tsp salt

¼ cup lukewarm water

Mix all the ingredients and let it rest.


4 lbs fresh spinach, washed and chopped

2 large onions, diced

1 ½ teaspoons salt

3 teaspoons sumac

Juice of one lemon

2 tablespoons olive oil

Mix the spinach with the salt and let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes. It will become soggy. Drain by squeezing the spinach. (This will prevent the fatayers from becoming soggy). Mix the onions, add the sumac and the juice of 1 lemon and the olive oil.

Cut the dough into two inch pieces and roll out. Add one tablespoon of filling and fold the sides to create a triangle. Arrange the fatayers in a well-oiled pan and cook in a 400 degrees Fahrenheit oven until golden and serve.
