1 1/4 Pound(s) Spinach, fresh stemmed and
1 Tablespoon(s) Olive oil
3 Scallions, trimmed and
chopped 1-1/2 c
1/4 Cup(s) Feta cheese, crumbled
2 Tablespoon(s) Parmesan cheese, freshly
2 Tablespoon(s) Dill, fresh chopped
1 Tablespoon(s) Lemon Juice
Salt & pepper, to taste
2 Egg whites
8 Phyllo dough sheets, 14x18"
1 Egg white
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1 Teaspoon(s) Poppy or sesame seeds, or a
To make filling: Put spinach with water still clinging to the leaves
in a large pot. Cover and cook over medium heat until the spinach is
wilted, about 5 minutes. Drain and refresh with cold water. Squeeze
the spinach quite dry and chop. In nonstick skillet, heat oil over
medium heat. Add scallions and saute until softened, 2 to 3 minutes.
Transfer to a medium-sized bowl and stir in spinach, feta, Parmesan,
dill and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Beat egg whites
lightly with a fork and stir into the spinach mixture. To form phyllo
rolls: Set oven rack on the upper level; preheat to 350 degrees F.
Coat a baking sheet lightly with nonstick cooking spray or line with
parchment paper. In a small bowl, whisk together egg white, oil and
salt. Lay one sheet of phyllo on a work surface with a short side
toward you. Brush lower half of the sheet with the egg-white mixture.
Repeat this step with a second sheet of phyllo and set on top of the
first. Spoon one-quarter of the spinach filling along one long edge.
Tuck in the side edges and roll up, jelly-roll fashion. Place on the
prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining phyllo, egg-white
mixture and filling, making 4 rolls in all. Brush tops of the rolls
lightly with the egg-mixture and sprinkle with seeds, if desired. Bake
for 25 to 30 minutes. With a serrated knife, cut each roll diagonally
into 9 pieces and serve hot. The rolls may be prepared, baked and
sliced up to 2 days in advance. Reheat in a 350 degree F oven for 10
to 12 minutes, or until heated through. Makes 36 appetizers. 39
