Feta, Ricotta and Spinach filo triangles.

This is the simplest and tastiest version of these small cheese triangles that I have made. The recipe is very flexible and Sweet  or Savory fillings can be used.  The method for preparing the Filo is a breeze.  I can’t understand why I haven’t used the Pizza wheel before to cut the Filo. 
The triangles in the photo look a bit flaky.  This is because I reheated them in the Air Fryer.

300 g Feta cheese
300 g Ricotta cheese
3 small eggs or 2 large ones
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg.
2 teaspoons dried Oregano.
Black pepper
Olive oil for brushing
1 packet of frozen Spinach or 1 cup of cooked spinach , well drained. 
1 packet of either frozen or chilled Filo pastry. 

Method for filling
If Filo is frozen, leave on kitchen bench to thaw thoroughly. 
Into Thermomix bucket place remaining ingredients EXCEPT olive oil and Spinach. 
Mix until creamy, speed 4 / 30 seconds. 
Chop frozen Spinach or cooked and place in seize and push water out.   Put on chopping board and chop again. 
Scrape into Thermomix bowl and mix through. 2 seconds/ speed 5. 

Preheat oven to 180 C ff

Place Filo on bench and unfold.
Cover with damp tea towel. 
Using a large chopping board, place 1 sheet of Filo on board., long side facing you.  
Brush well with olive oil. 
Place another sheet of Filo on top of first sheet.
Cut Filo into 5 even pieces with pizza wheel. 
Place a heaped dessertspoon of filling in corner and fold to form a triangle.   Keep folding and place on baking tray.
