Spinach and Feta Parcels

This is my go to dish when I have someone coming for lunch. They really do taste impressive for very little work! Every bit as delicious as what you will find in a cafe, if not more so!

I know it’s cheating a little bit to use pre-made puff pastry, but sometimes there just isn’t time to make your own.

On Tuesday I had a colleague coming and I wanted to put something yummy together that didn’t cost the earth. I knew this would be the perfect dish to fit the brief. Every time I make them I get compliments, which of course I love!

Look how delicious they look, let alone what they taste like…

Spinach and Feta Parcels

 

Here is the recipe…

Ingredients:

4x Sheets of Pre-Made Puff Pastry
60g of Baby Spinach Leaves (about half a bag)
1/2 Red Onion, finely chopped
100g button mushrooms, finely chopped
200g Feta (I like to use the Mainland Reduced Fat brand)
1/2 cup Grated Cheese, Edam is good
1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
1/2 Tsp Ground Black Pepper
1/2 Tsp Garlic & Herb Salt
Splash of milk

Method:

  1. Defrost 4 of the pastry sheets and preheat the oven to 180°
  2. Finely chop the red onion and mushroom and place into a bowl.
  3. Roughly chop the spinach leaves and add to the bowl.
  4. Add the grated cheese, minced garlic, chopped feta, pepper and salt to the bowl and mix everything together
  5. Cut each of the sheets into 4 equal squares. Place a tablespoon of the filling mixture in the centre of each square. Brush milk around the edges of the pastry square and fold the pastry over into a triangle and seal the edges down by pressing.
  6. Place the pastry triangles onto a baking tray.
  7. Bake the parcels at 180° for 15mins or until golden brown
  8. Serve immediately with tomato relish and a side salad
  9. ENJOY!
