Flaky — not me; but the canola pastry I used for this spinach roll thing. I am not being blasé; I really don’t know what to call it. It’s not a puff and it didn’t roll properly. Let’s just say … spinach pastry, shall we?
Spinach, I find, is the one thing you cannot possibly get wrong. Whether you cream it or steam it; stuff it in a puff or puree it in a soup, the result is always fantastic.
For this filling, I just cooked the spinach (drained well) in some butter and added some sliched button mushrooms (sauteed first), cherry tomatoes, chopped shallots and garlic and then seasoning. That’s it. The tomatoes were more for colour than flavour because nothing should outshine the rich flavour of spinach. And, it’s food you can eat without guilt cos apart from being rich in iron, this superfood is also rich in betacarotene (second only to carrots) and also a good source of potassium and folates.
And it tastes good. Always. Anyways, back to the recipe; a good final touch would be sprinkling cheese on the spinach when rolling it in the pastry.
Remember: be strong to the finich and eats lotsa spinach.
