Spinach and feta wraps
Pine nuts are the seeds of the pine tree, which ripen in the cone, and are widely used as food across large parts of the Mediterranean. The seeds particularly reveal their mildly resinous flavour after roasting, and can be used to enhance pasta dishes or bakery items.

For the puff pastry pockets:
12 puff pastry sheets (deep-frozen)
480 g spinach leaves (fresh or deep-frozen)
1 tbs butter
480 g feta cheese
100 g MorgenLand pine nuts
2 egg yolks
2 tbs basil pesto (vegan)
Pepper / Salt
For the salad: 500 g lamb’s lettuce
24 small cherry tomatoes
150 g MorgenLand roasted cashews, salted
1 small onion
5 tbs balsamic vinegar
3 tbs olive oil
Salt / freshly ground pepper
1 tsp mustard
What to do!
Lay the puff pastry pockets out next to one another, and leave to thaw for approx. 10 – 15 minutes. Sort, wash and drain the fresh spinach. Alternatively, leave the deep-frozen spinach to thaw. Finely chop the onion, and steam in the butter until translucent. Add the spinach leaves, allow the liquid to boil, and season with salt and pepper.
Crush the feta with a fork, season with salt and pepper, and stir in the pesto. Roast the pine nuts in an ungreased pan until golden-brown. Pour the spinach, the feta mixture and pine nuts onto the pastry sheets, and form into pockets. Press the sides down well, then coat the pockets with egg yolk. Bake on the middle shelf of a preheated oven at 200 °C for approx. 20 minutes.
For the side salad, sort, wash, clean and thoroughly drain the lamb’s lettuce. Wash the cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters, and season with salt and pepper. Arrange the lettuce and cherry tomatoes on the plate.
Finely dice the onion. Pour the balsamic vinegar, mustard, olive oil, diced onion, salt and pepper into a screw-top jar, and shake well. Season to taste once again, and drizzle over the salad. Sprinkle with cashew nuts, and serve with the freshly baked puff pastry pockets.
