Spinach And Feta Rolls

Spinach And Feta Rolls

Sharing is caring!

My spinach and feta rolls with cream cheese and leek are one of the easiest and fastest recipes for a delicious snack or appetizer. It is easy because we only need puff pastry or shortcrust pastry that you can find in any store and a filling that can vary according to everyone’s imagination.

The shape you give to this appetizer can also be different. That is, you can fill the puff pastry in a single roll and, after baking, cut it into slices or before slicing it and baking it in the form of swirls.

Ingredients

For the filling, I will use 350 g (12 oz) of fresh spinach, which I will finely chop and mix with 200 g (7 oz) of cream cheese and 100 g (3.5 oz) of feta cheese. For an extra flavour, I will add a thin leek thread that I chop finely and an egg that will bind the filling a little.

With all these ingredients, I will fill a 375 g (13 oz) roll of puff pastry, enough for four generous appetizer portions.

How to Make the Spinach and Feta Rolls

You will see that the recipe is not complicated, so I will first make the filling, then I will fill and roll the puff pastry and bake it.

Make the Filling

Because the spinach leaves were pre-washed, I only have to chop them finely because I will use them raw and not pre-boiled or cooked.

After cutting the leek lengthwise into four, I will chop it finely and put it together with the chopped spinach in a mixing bowl.

On top of them, I add the cream cheese, crumbled feta cheese into smaller pieces and the whole free-range egg. Season with a teaspoon of sea salt, half a teaspoon of freshly ground pepper and a teaspoon of garlic powder.

I mix everything with a wooden spoon until I get a homogeneous paste, with which I will fill the puff pastry.

Fill the Puff Pastry

Spread the sheet of puff pastry on a work surface lined with flour, so it does not stick. Or use my method, leaving it on the baking paper in which the puff pastry is packed and which I will also use for baking.

Spread the entire amount of the filling evenly over the sheet, leaving the edges free, and roll, closing the ends well so that the melted cheese does not run out.

Prick the dough with a fork, making small holes for the resulting steam to escape and brush on top with a beaten egg so that it is become shiny and has a lovely colour.

Baking

With the baking paper, place the roll in a baking tray and put it in the oven preheated to 180 C FAN (356 F) for 25-30 minutes until it becomes a beautiful golden colour.

Serving the Rolls

Cut the spinach and feta roulade into thicker slices and serve them both hot and cold as they are or with mayonnaise or tartar sauce on top; they are so finger-licking tasty.
