Cheese Triangles

This makes for a great starter, snack or lunch on its own. It is quick and easy to prepare. You can even make several variations using tabasco, spinach or mushrooms. Re-create the taste and the memories of Spain back home. Cooking great food can be an integral part of our rehabilitation programme at Los Olivos.


  • A tub of ricotta cheese (or similar)
  • A slab of feta cheese (no substitute)
  • A packet of filo pastry
  • 1 egg
  • A knob of butter
  • Pinch of nutmeg
  • Salt and Pepper


  1. Open the filo pastry and cover with a damp cloth and mix together the cheeses, nutmeg, salt and pepper

  2. Melt the butter and stick two sheets of the filo pastry together, by brushing one layer with the melted butter, using the same method stick another slice onto these two

  3. You will have a square of filo that you then need to cut into 4 – 5 strips. Put a spoonful of the cheese mixture onto the end of a strip

  4. Fold the corner of the pastry strip over the cheese mixture, creating your first triangle, keep folding the strip triangle over triangle until you reach the end of the strip, fix with some butter

  5. Repeat with the other strips, making as many as you can until either the cheese mixture or filo runs out. Place in a hot oven for 10 – 15 minutes, they are ready when the pastry is a lovely golden brown. Serve with salad and your favourite dips

When I moved to Spain I started doing some cooking jobs for parties and home meals. I would rack my brains for food that would be delicious, easy to prepare in advance, easy to transport etc.

I looked through books and watched TV cooking programmes, got lots of ideas, and then decided to carry, adding my own touches. The cheese triangles turned out to be a great success, always a winner.

My customers always loved them and to my amazement my eldest daughter who “doesn’t do cheese” absolutely loved them as well.

“Do you know what is in them?” I asked her.

“No, but I will have another one with some red sauce please”.

“It’s cheese.” I said and she stopped chewing. “But I don’t do cheese,” she replied.

“Well it looks like you do now.” She smiled a cheesy ketchup smile.
