Ψωμί φέτα και σπανάκι

Fancy Peasant Feta + Spinach Bread

These delicious bread rings and twists are the most comforting, and you can make them with your littles. They can be served as an appetizer, or like I prefer to eat them, as a full on meal with horiatiki salata. You can add whatever ingredients you fancy but the combination of the feta and spinach is pretty hard to beat.

Fancy Peasant Feta + Spinach Bread


  • 1 ¼ cup warm milk
  • 2 ½ cups organic flour or 100% stone ground whole wheat organic four
  • 1 package yeast
  • 1 ¼ warm water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup Fancy Peasant GEVOO
  • 10 oz. spinach, chopped fine
  • 1 lb. feta cheese (we prefer goat and sheeps milk)
  • Mountain oregano
  • 10 ounce jar of Greek olives
  • white sesame (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven 375°F.
  2. Mix all ingredients together.
  3. Knead dough until you have created a large smooth ball.
  4. Cover dough with a kitchen cloth or plastic wrap and let rest in a warm place. Rest half an hour to 45 minutes before working.
  5. Separate your dough into 6 to 8 smaller balls.
  6. Work the spinach, feta, and olives into the dough.
  7. For Twists: Roll each piece into a long snake-like piece approximately 12-15" long, or twist both ends into opposite directions.
  8. For Rings: Knead each ball into a sausage shape, then gently turn ends towards each other to form a circle or koulouri. The rings should be roughly the same size.
  9. Cover in sesame seeds.
  10. Place on a lined baking sheet with parchment paper.
  11. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
