Air-fryer Vegan Spanakopita ★★★★★2 reviews

This spanakopita recipe produces a super crispy pastry when using an air-fryer. You've got to try it! Recipe by Eden.

Serves 6 | Prep time: 20 mins | Cooking time: 17 mins



  • 375g firm tofu block
  • 1 small brown onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 60g baby spinach
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp cashew parmesan or nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp salt & pepper
  • 1 tsp dried oregano & basil


  • 3 sheets vegan puff pastry


  1. In a large bowl, crumble the tofu into small pieces and combine all the filling ingredients and mix together.
  2. Thaw puff pastry and cut in half into rectangles. Spoon the filling mixture along the bottom of each piece.
  3. Preheat air fryer to 170°C/325°F for 5 minutes.
  4. Roll up the pastry to form a log and repeat with remaining pieces.
  5. Assemble inside the air-fryer into a spiral shape. Brush with melted vegan butter and cook for 15-17 mins. Very gently flip it over onto a towel or plate, then place back inside the air-fryer upside down to cook the bottom for a further 10 mins.
  6. Remove and flip back around again. Serve warm.

    Turned out great! I threw in some fresh basil since I had some and sprinkled on some sesame seeds. Also cooked it hotter and longer.
