Phyllo dough recipes to make:
I used phyllo to top this creamy lentil casserole to add a little crunchy layer on top! It’s so good and comforting.
Similar to spanakopita, this vegan spinach pie uses phyllo and a creamy spinach feeling. These are a great appetizer to whip up!
These baked brie rolls with sundried tomatoes take a whole new spin on baked brie that you’re going to love. These are the perfect snack or appy that’ll become your new go-to for potlucks and parties.
These Creamy Mushroom Pastry Bites are flaky, crispy, and everything you want and need in a quick snack or appetizer recipe. I love to whip these up (in under 30 minutes) for when I’m having people over.

Phyllo Dough Recipes - Black Bean and Feta Stuffed
For the Refried Beans,
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- ½ medium white onion finely chopped
- 3 garlic cloves
- 580 ml can refried beans
- 1 ½ tsp. garlic powder
- 1 ½ tsp. salt
- ¾ tsp. chili powder
- ½ tsp. cumin
- ½ tsp. red chili flakes
For the Phyllo Triangles,
- 3 sprigs green onion thinly sliced
- 1 jalapeno finely chopped
- 1 cup feta crumbled
- 3 tbsp. cilantro chopped
- 1 pack phyllo
- ½ cup butter melted
- ¼ cup salsa Verde
- ¼ cup sour cream
- 1 lime cut into wedges
- The night before making your individual phyllo triangles, make sure to remove your phyllo dough from the freezer. Allow to thaw in the fridge.
- In a large pot, heat your olive oil on medium heat for around 30 seconds.
- Add the onions and garlic, sautéing until slightly caramelized and fragrant, 2 – 3 minutes.
- Next, add the refried beans, and ALL of the spices.
- Cook for 5 minutes to allow all of the flavours to combine.
- Transfer to a large bowl and cool slightly.
- Add the green onion, jalapeno, and feta. Mix until thoroughly combined.
- Adjust seasoning to taste and set aside.
- Preheat the oven to 400F and prepare 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Melt the butter and set aside. Have it ready with a brush to gently coat your phyllo.
- It is best to keep your phyllo dough moist, so I suggest laying it out flat then covering with a damp cloth.
- Gently place one sheet or phyllo dough onto a large cutting board or flat surface. This is a very delicate ingredient, so be patient.
- Coat the whole thing with melted butter, using your brush, then repeat that step with more sheets, 4 layers total.
- Use a pizza cutter or knife to cut the layered phyllo dough into 4 long strips.
- Scoop approximately 2-3 tbsp of the black bean filling 1 – 2 cm away from the edge of one strip.
- Roll the phyllo dough directly over the filling to fully cover it.
- Next, complete a diagonal fold towards one side, to begin a triangle formation.
- Continue this type of diagonal fold down the entire strip, making sure to alternate the sides each fold.
- Arrange onto the baking tray and lightly brush with the melted butter.
- Complete these steps until all of the filling is used.
- Bake for 16 - 18 minutes, until golden brown and crisp.
- Serve with salsa Verde, sour cream, and fresh lime! ENJOY!!
