Makes 30-35 pieces

Prep 10-15 minutes

Cook 20 minutes


INGREDIENTS


Pinwheels:

4 sheets puff pastry, gluten-free (I used Simply Wize Puff Pastry)

200g spinach leaves, washed, dried very well and finely chopped

4 spring onions, finely sliced

150g Greek feta, crumbled

50g parmesan cheese, finely grated

1egg, whisked

Salt and pepper


Yoghurt Dip:

150g Greek yoghurt

1 x zest of a lemon

1 garlic clove, minced

2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

Pinch of salt and pepper


INSTRUCTIONS


1. Prepare the filling: Preheat the oven to 210°C fan force. Line 2 trays with baking paper. Next, make sure the spinach is air and paper towel-dried very well, squeeze any excess liquid, and then in a bowl combine the spinach, green onion, feta, parmesan, salt, and pepper. Combine well enough that it becomes like a thick paste ready for spreading.


2. Spread and Roll: Place the puff pastry sheet onto a flat surface and spread the mixture evenly over the pastry, leaving a small border at the top edge. Next, roll it into a tight spiral log and seal the edge by pressing it gently.


3. Slice and Brush: Slice the log into 2cm thick pinwheels, place them spread out onto the baking trays, and brush lightly with the egg wash.


4. Bake and serve: Place into the preheated oven for 20 minutes or until they are golden and puffed up. In the meantime, combine the ingredients for the yoghurt dip. Allow spinach and feta pinwheels to cool for 10 minutes before serving. Place onto a platter with the dipping sauce and enjoy.


AIR FRYER INSTRUCTIONS :

Make half the amount recommended in the ingredients, then follow instructions 1-3.

Once the log is sliced and brushed with eggwash, place scrolls in the air fryer basket, lined with baking paper, then cook at 200°C for 15 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Do not overcrowd in air fryer.

I used frozen spinach and heated it on the stove. No moisture to drain so quick and easy option. Loved them!

We cooked these immediately and loved them. Great to find a recipe that you don't have to cook the spinach first. Thanks
