Spinach and Feta Puff Pastry Pockets

Ingredients :

  • 1 package (about 17 oz) puff pastry sheets, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 10 oz fresh spinach, washed and chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
  • Black sesame seeds (optional, for garnish)

Préparations :

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the Filling:
    • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
    • Add the chopped onion and cook until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
    • Add the garlic and cook for another minute until fragrant.
    • Add the chopped spinach, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Cook until the spinach is wilted and any excess moisture has evaporated, about 5-7 minutes.
    • Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
    • Once cooled, mix in the crumbled feta cheese.
  3. Prepare the Puff Pastry:
    • On a lightly floured surface, roll out each puff pastry sheet to about 1/8-inch thickness.
    • Cut the pastry into squares or rectangles, depending on your preference and the size of your sheets.
  4. Fill the Pastry:
    • Place a tablespoon of the spinach and feta mixture in the center of each pastry square.
    • Fold the pastry over to create a triangle or rectangle and press the edges together to seal. You can use a fork to crimp the edges for a decorative touch.
  5. Egg Wash and Bake:
    • Place the filled pastries on the prepared baking sheet.
    • Brush the tops with the beaten egg and sprinkle with black sesame seeds if using.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the pastries are golden brown and puffed.
  6. Cool and Serve:
    • Remove from the oven and let cool slightly on a wire rack.
    • Serve warm or at room temperature.

These spinach and feta puff pastry pockets are perfect for a savory snack, appetizer, or even a light meal. Enjoy!
