Ricotta and Spinach Puffs

These are super as canapes. 


2 Packets of rolled puff pastry
500g fresh spinach - chopped
1 Tbsp salt
500g pound ricotta
2 eggs (one for the filling and one for egg-washing)
2 Tbsp cream
4 Tbsp grated Parmigiano Reggiano
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Pinch black pepper


Preheat oven to 18C
Cut the puff pastry into largish squares.
Beat 1 egg in a small bowl and brush the edges of the pastry.
Plunge the spinach into boiling water and leave for 2 minutes. Remove and plunge into a bowl of ice water.
In a large bowl combine all the ingredients.
Place the mixture on one half of the pastry and fold the pastry into rectangles. Press the party sides together to make sure that the triangles are well sealed.
Brush the top of the triangles with the remaining egg wash.
Bake in preheated 180C oven for about 20 minutes or until the pastry is puffed up and golden.


  1. Spinach as filling, love this so much.

  2. I love when people do something new with something old. A great idea to do a twist on the traditional pastry turnover with this great filling. I've used these for sandwiches. I would definitely eat this.

  3. How many sheets of puff pastry does this recipe require?
