COOKING WITH UNICREDIT SPINACH PIE
Thursday 28 May 2020
Pita zeljanica - or spinach pie - is a dish representative of Bosnia and Herzegovina and has significant cultural importance. Here's an easy recipe you can follow at home
There are lots of variations of this traditional delicacy from Bosnia and Herzegovina, such as burek (chopped or minced meat pie), zeljanica („zelje“-spinach pie), sirnica ( „sir“-cheese pie), krompiruša ( „krompir“ – potato pie).
Of course, due to very dynamic way of urban life, the pie-making process has been simplified now. Instead of rolling out thin layers of dough, stuffing them and then bending into circles, lots of cooks use pre-prepared dough and stack them in layers together with filling.
