Whether you're out there making a spinach-filled meal and calling it spanakopita, or burek, or just plain old spinach pie, there's one thing that is undeniable: spinach is delicious. Not icky. Delicious. (Especially when full of cheese and other herbs and set in a lovely pie crust.)


But while we can plan adorable treats for our Halloween parties all day long, chances are you (and your kids, if you have them) are excited about the spooky spirit all month long—as you should be! In such a time, I say: why wait until the last day of the month to make your table spooky when you can get to work right here and now for an everyday (and veggie-filled) dinner? Grab some Halloween themed cookie cutters, and you've got the means of making something adorable, delicious, and plenty magical.


And while I've heard of spinach pies before, I've never seen one that incorporated mint, of all things, but I gotta say: it worked so well! Dill and mint together, in a savory dish like this, is a flavor profile I haven't experienced, and it makes me want to explore Greek food more.


For this meal, we're looking specifically at spinach, parsley, dill, and cheese (or just dairy in general).

Magic in Spooky Spinach Pie


We've talked about spinach before: it's a hearty leaf, with a deep and pretty green color and plenty of zinc and iron inside. Its constitution, color, and substance make it wonderful for grounding, prosperity, and armoring oneself. Therefore, as a focus in this dish, you know it's going to be a powerful thing in the main focus of wealth and protection. Combine that with the symbol of abundance for our ancestors, dairy (especially cheese) and the herbs of dill and parsley, which are all about communication, protection, and money, this makes one pretty green recipe.


Interestingly enough, depending on what tradition or views you have of spinach, it could be considered water or earth—which means you very reasonably have a combination of all four elements here. Combine that with two Mercury-focused herbs that aid in communication and protection, as well as the sentimental Moon-driven ricotta and the lucky Jupiter-ruled spinach, and you have a recipe for a happy disposition, great interpersonal connection, and lots of luck.
