Spanakopita Triangles

Who doesn't love a great Greek dish every now and then?

I made these low-point Spanakopita Triangles for my friend's New Years bash and they were a hit. The men even continued to eat them once they found out they were low-fat. That's a win!

These little 2 point snacks are not only good as an app, but you can pair them with a Greek salad for a filling meal. The best part? When you have 2 they are only 3 points!


Spanakopita Triangles


  • 1 cup fat-free ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup low-fat crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 package of thawed (frozen) chopped spinach - drain as much water as possible
  • 1 small diced onion
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp dill
  • 8 pieces of thawed (frozen) phyllo dough


Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Thaw phyllo dough according to box. Thaw spinach in microwave or leave in fridge overnight. Mix first 8 ingredients in large bowl, set aside. Place 2 pieces of phyllo dough on parchment paper, spray cooking spray or brush light butter between both sheets. Use pizza cutter to cut dough into 5 vertical strips. Place large spoonful of mixture at bottom of each strip and roll according to diagram below.

Place triangles on parchment paper on a baking sheet. Spray triangles with cooking spray, or brush with light butter. Bake for 15 minutes or until crust is golden brown.

Points+: 2 per triangle

As mentioned, eat alone as a snack or pair with a Greek salad. These are freezable in an uncooked state. So pop a few in the freezer and then pull them out and pop in the oven when you are in the mood for a quick bite.
