Spinach and Cheese Spirals

I had seen these spirals many times but never made them. I finally got a packet of puff pastry and made these. They are relatively simple to make and take minutes to assemble. I have used frozen spinach but you can use fresh spinach as well. Just blanch and pat dry to make the quantity.

Ingredients:

1 packet puff pastry frozen
3/4 cup frozen spinach, thawed and moisture squeezed out
1/2 cup shredded cheddar and pepperjack cheese
Pinch salt and pepper
Thaw the puff pastry at room temperature. When thawed, roll out on a flat surface. Spread the spinach evenly on the puff pastry. Next sprinkle the cheese, salt and pepper. To roll the pastry, start from the short side and make a tight roll. When you reach the end seal well with water, else it will open up while baking. Cut the roll into 1/2 inch thick slices. Spread parchment paper on the sheet pan to prevent the slices from sticking to the pan. Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 15 mins or till golden brown.

I am sending this recipe to 'Healing Foods Event - Spinach' hosted by Divya and started by Siri. And to Divya's Sunday Snacks: Healthy Snacks Event.

These look so good. I made some similar ones at Christmastime with spinach and roasted red pepper--the color was great for the holidays. Love puff pastry--it's dangerous!
