Pour 1 cup of hot water onto the bulgur and set aside. Chop the onion and stew with some oil. Then add the spinach and cook for another 3-5 mins. Mix the cooked veggies with the bulgur, and season with salt to taste. Put some oil on a non-stick baking tray, and cover the bottom of the tray with two fillo dough sheets. Put some more olive oil onto the dough sheets, then add some of the veggie-bulgur mixture, spreading it evenly onto the sheets. Then add two more of the sheets, adding olive oil and spreading some more of the mixture. Do this until you have added all dough sheets, finishing with 2 sheets, sprinkled with olive oil. Bake over 370 F (190 C) for about 40-50 mins. Sprinkle with some water and cover with a towel as soon as you take the banitsa out of the oven. Let it sit for 30 mins.
And leave some for others if you can 😉
