A photographic food adventure

WOW. Anyone else feel like mid-semester blends into end of semester far too soon? IT JUST DOESNT STOP. Why the heck would you make a “mid semester test” at the end of the semester? Yuck.
Anyway, Tory and I are getting ridiculously busy, but we are still trying to post here and there as much as we can 🙂

I made these the other day because feta was on special (and still is, apparently so go get it!) And i thought it would be a cool idea to try something new. So here we go!
I’m trying this new thing where I don’t take so many photos, but just enough so you all get the gist of what’s happening.

Ingredients
1 package puff pastry [filo could work as well? do some experimenting, i say!]
2 or 3 frozen spinach rolls [optional]
1 package fresh spinach [i mixed, but you can do whatever you want]
2 eggs
1 200g block of feta cheese, chopped finely.
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
a pinch of salt
pepper

Method
Preheat the oven as from the directions on your packet of pasty. Cut the pastry into big enough squares for you to use.

cook the spinach on low heat, with a bit of butter, until the frozen spinach is thawed and separated, and the fresh spinach is wilted. Set aside to cool.

Combine the eggs, chilli powder, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper. When the spinach is cooled, add the spinach and lastly the feta.

Spoon the mixture in the middle of each pastry square. fold over and seal by pressing a fork down all around the outsides. [it looks like you’re trying to make a cool pattern, but you’re really sealing it. But you can just make everyone think you’re skilled at patterning pastry if you want Smile with tongue out ]

Brush the pastry with egg or milk. Put these in your pre-heated oven until they are golden-brown. Enjoy! 🙂
