This is a stonking recipe. Tried my hand at it last night and it was delicious. Thumbs up.
600g washed fresh or frozen spinach
200g each: sliced mushrooms, feta cheese
1/2 tsp nutmeg, grated
Maldon salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
8 sheets filo pastry
25g butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Thaw the spinach. Squeeze out the moisture.
Heat a little oil in a saucepan, add the mushrooms and sauté. Break the feta into a bowl and add the spinach and mushrooms. Add the nutmeg and seasonings and mix to combine.
Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions.
Brush a sheet of filo with butter. Place a portion of spinach mixture in the centre of the filo, about a third up from one end. Fold this end over the mixture, then fold in both the sides. Roll up to form a parcel. Continue the process with the remaining mixture.
Place the parcels on an oven tray and bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden brown.
Note: If using fresh spinach, cut the stems off, place spinach in a large bowl and pour over boiling water. Leave to stand for 3 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water. Drain again, gently squeeze out the excess water and pat dry with a paper towel.
