Due to a purchasing error made by my husband, I have four boxes of phyllo dough in the freezer. I hate baklava, and while I love spinach pie and fruit turnovers made with phyllo I don't know if I can eat four boxes worth of those things. Google is turning up recipes for meaty things mostly. What are some delicious things I can make?

Have you heard of bisteeya? It's a Moroccan phyllo pie. There's a recipe in Chloe's Kithcen, and I think there's a recipe in Vegan Eats World too.

I have! I ate some (the traditional meat/eggs kind) in a restaurant probably ten years ago and wasn't really crazy about it because I always hated sweet things with eggs, but I guess not using eggs would fix that. I have Chloe's Kitchen, too.

I know you said that you hate baklava, but (there's always a "but" isn't there?) most people go absolutely crazy over homemade baklava and it uses a ton of phyllo. So if you were so inclined, I know the recipients would be super grateful :)

What about little purses, you know, this kind of shape? http://www.clawson.co.uk/images/recipes/55.jpg

I do them filled with roasted vegetable combinations. Like, a blob of pesto, with a whole roasted field mushroom filled with almond feta, some steamed spinach, and a wedge of roasted beetroot on top. Then wrap it all up, bake it and serve with a yummy sauce. It's really easy but looks so fancy.

After Thanksgiving I use phyllo to make turnovers with all the leftovers. I brush each layer with melted Earth Balance or this herbed coconut oil I bought before the local vegan shop closed down.

^ that sounds amazing.

The original Angelica Home Kitchen cookbook has a phyllo casserole with beets, potato, and spinach. It was relatively easy.

We did this thing in the restaurant and it was so yummy:

Ratatouille: zucchini, eggplant, red peppers, mushrooms very small dice - cooked in olive oil til tender. Drain and cool. Save the juice for something cuz it is very tasty.

Hummous: your favorite recipe

take two full sheets of phyllo and brush lightly with olive oil
take about 2-3 fl. oz of hummous and spread across the front of the middle third (side to side thirds)
about the same amount of cooled ratatouille
roll up and brush lightly with oil

Oven at 350 til golden brown on the top (not sure of the time in a conventional oven)
cut in half on oblique plate and leaned against little slaw pile on plate beside a pool of savory chili sauce or something like that. Serve with some cous cous/quinoa/rice or something.

These things are awesome tasting and look really cool on a plate.

Yes! Having a few unexpected expenses crop up recently means we're kind of broke and attempting to feed off what's already in the house this next week. That said, I don't want it to be too boring and there are a couple packages of phyllo in the freezer, so this thread is very timely!

I've never actually made these before, but they have been on my list for awhile.

Use it instead of a traditional crust for any fruit pie.
Line muffin or even mini muffin tins with it to make cute little appetizer holders. You can fill them with just about anything. You can even cool them and fill with salad.
