Mediterranean Spanakopita with Kale and Pumpkin

This take on a classic Greek dish uses fall-inspired ingredients for a tasty variation.


  • 1 pkg (150 g) of Mastro® and San Daniele® Charcuterie Trio Mediterranean Flavours
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) olive oil
  • 4 cups (1 L) loosely packed chopped kale
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) oregano
  • Pinch each salt and pepper
  • 3/4 cup (175 mL) finely crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) pumpkin purée
  • 2 eggs
  • 12 sheets phyllo pastry
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 375˚F (190˚C). Chop salami with prosciutto and chorizo salami; set speck-smoked prosciutto aside for garnish. Heat oil in large skillet set over medium heat; cook chopped charcuterie, kale, green onions, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper for 5 to 8 minutes or until kale is very tender. Let cool completely. Squeeze out any excess moisture. Stir kale mixture with feta, pumpkin purée and eggs.
  2. Lay 1 sheet of phyllo on work surface; brush lightly with melted butter (keep remaining sheets covered with damp towel). Top with 2 sheets of phyllo, brushing each lightly with butter. Starting at one short side, cut into 5 long strips.
  3. Spoon 1 1/2 tbsp (22 mL) filling onto 1 corner of end of strip nearest you, then fold corner of phyllo over to enclose filling and form triangle. Continue folding strip, maintaining triangle shape. Place pastry triangle, seam-side down on large parchment paper¬–lined baking sheet; brush top with melted butter. Repeat with remaining phyllo sheets and filling.
  4. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until pastry is golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes. Slice remaining speck-smoked prosciutto into strips; scatter over spanakopita.
  5. Tip: Substitute olive oil for melted butter if desired.
