1.Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly grease 2 baking trays.
2.Heat oil in a frying pan on medium. Saute onion and garlic for 1 minute. Add spinach and cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes until all liquid has evaporated. Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Stir in feta, walnuts and nutmeg, and season to taste.
3.Working with 2 sheets of filo at a time, place on a flat surface and brush each sheet with butter (or spray with oil). Cut widthways into 6 even strips. Place heaped teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto the end of each strip of pastry.
4.Fold pastry over to form a triangle. Continue folding, keeping triangle shape, to the end of the strip. Repeat with remaining pastry and filling.
5.Place triangles on prepared tray, seam-side down. Brush tops with remaining butter. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden and crisp.

If making ahead, cover with plastic wrap and chill to prevent pastry from drying out.
