Default Spanikopita

Made the spanikopita from _Vegan with a Vengeance_ (1) today, and it
was good, but probably not doing it again. It wasn't so delicious that
it was worth the work. Still, not bad, and it could be an impressive
potluck dish.

I preferred the salad -- tomatoes, cucumbers, and onion slices
marinated for a few hours in a vinegar/sugar/salt solution.

Tomorrow, tamale pie (taco-seasoned TVP, onions, black olives, corn,
fresh roasted pasilla, covered in a polenta-ish crust -- no recipe).

I haven't got the book, so excuse the questions!
Did it use fake feta, or was it just a plain spinach version?
What aspect of it was too much work?

That sounds interesting. I have a huge bag of TVP in my cupboard so
might try something like this (only wanted a small bag, had to buy a
huge one).

It "fakes" feta with tofu, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, and some
other stuff.

I don't mind preparing phyllo (brushing olive oil on each layer,
etc.), but it takes a long time, and if I do it, the result needs to
be delicious. This was merely pretty good.

We use a LOT of TVP.

It might be worth trying it with Bryanna Clark Grogan's meltable vegan feta:
http://veganfeastkitchen.blogspot.co...tofu-feta.html

It really does melt - I've tried it - but it would add even more work
to the recipe, so that may cancel out any extra deliciousness (It's
work that can be done weeks ahead of time, though, and the feta is useful
for other things too.)
