One month wedding anniversary today!
Tried out a new recipe Monday night. Actually I tried out a combination of 2 recipes and used phylo dough for the first time. Recipes combo from Australian Women's Weekly (vegetarian) and Vegetarian Times magazine.
Spinach, basil, cheese stuffed phylo rolls (Paul approved)
Filing (all measurements approximative):
3 stalks of green onions (shallotts)
1/2 red and 1/4 green peppers
1/4 cup red lentils
approx 1 tbsp basil
1 clove garlic
4 leaves of spinach
sauteed together with butter. started with mushrooms and butter and then added the rest once the mushrooms were done.
1/4 cup cottage cheese
1 cup cheddar cheese
put in food processor and pureed
spooned into phylo squares and rolled.
top buttered and sprinkled with sesame seeds.
baked for 20 mins @ 350
They were actually very savory considering that the only spice added was basil. I was concerned that the filling would be heavy but I was actually very pleased with my experiment. I will be making these goodies again.
