Encastry pastry of spinach and roasted red pepper

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup spinach, cooked, drained and chopped
  • ½ roasted red pepper, diced
  • ½ cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 tsp fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 6 leaves fresh basil, chopped
  • To taste salt & pepper
  • 6 sheets phyllo dough

Method:

  1. Pre-heat toaster oven to 400F. In a large bowl mix together all of the ingredients except the Phyllo dough.
  2. Spread out the sheets of parchment on a flat surface while keeping covered with a moist towel to not dry out. Brush three pieces of Phyllo dough with melted butter and lay each piece on top of each other. Cut the dough into 2-inch wide strips.
  3. Place one tbsp of the filling on the end of each strip of Phyllo. Starting at the end with the filling, fold one corner of the dough over the spinach filling to the opposite side of the strip to form a triangle, like point folding a flag.
  4. Place the triangles onto the baking sheet pan and brush with melted butter. Bake for 15 minutes until brown and crispy. Serve with mixed greens and lemon thyme vinaigrette.
