My first experience with fatayer was when I made Beef Fatayer recently. It was such a hit with my family I ventured in to making the spinach version called Sabanekh Fatayer.
This veggie turnover is even easier than the Beef version. I used biscuit dough this time which was simpler than the pizza dough. They were in the correct shape already, I just had to press and roll thin. The filling is as simple as chopping herbs and mixing with egg, ricotta and salt & pepper. After baking, these little gems were ready. We ate them as entrees but they could be appetizers too.

This looks so easy and amazing. Can't wait to try this. I am always trying to get more veggies into our diets and this is very clever. I'll bet this will work with cabbage too. The possibilities seem endless. Nice trick to use the biscuit dough.
