Turkish Tofu And Spinach Borek

By Natalie at natalietamara.co.uk

A vegan-ised version of a Turkish classic, Börek. With layers of filo pastry, spinach and tofu mixed with fresh mint and baked in the oven, this is the perfect main course or starter.


Serves 6

  • 6 sheets of filo pastry, cut in half and left out of the fridge for ten minutes
  • 100g fresh spinach

For The Tofu Layer:

  • 400g tofu, drained and crumbled
  • 20g fresh mint, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 50g dairy-free margarine, melted
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper


Preheat the oven to 200°C. Mix the tofu layer ingredients together thoroughly.

Grease a large oven-proof dish with a thin coating of the melted dairy-free margarine.

Add the first sheet of filo pastry, followed by a coat of margarine. Repeat this process with three more filo sheets.

Cover the filo pastry evenly with half of the spinach, followed by half of the tofu mix.

Repeat these steps to add the next layer.

Add a final layer of filo sheets, being sure to coat the top layer with plenty of the melted dairy-free margarine.

Bake it in the oven for around 45 minutes or until the pastry has turned golden-brown.
