Or phyllo pockets? I love little “pocket” meals. Just more fun to use your hands. Remember this spinach and sausage pizza pocket?
Phyllo is both fun and a big pain to work with.
Still, phyllo produces some pretty yummy results so don’t be afraid, just allow some patience and forgiveness if your pockets aren’t beautiful.
Here is how this recipe goes down.
Let’s do our filling, shall we?
Cheesy Spinach-Stuffed Phyllo Pockets
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tbsp tamari (or soy sauce)
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 cups baby spinach leaves
- 1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
- 1/2 cup almonds
- 1 can Great Northern Beans, rinsed and drained
- Shredded cheddar cheese
- Olive Oil or butter for brushing
- 1 package phyllo dough
1) Combine lemon juice, tamari, garlic and salt in your food processor bowl. Process.
2) Add spinach, basil, and almonds. Process again, stopping to scrape the bowl when necessary.
3) Lay out 3-4 sheets of phyllo. Cut in desired shape.
4) Spread cheddar cheese on one end.
5) Add a generous amount of filling.
6) Fold signs in and shape your pocket.
7) Brush the top with olive oil or butter. Pinch in sides to hold the pocket together.
8) Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
