Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Mix spinach, Parmesan cheese, cottage cheese, sour cream, shallots, 1 egg, garlic, salt, black pepper, and nutmeg together in a bowl until filling is well-mixed.

  • Roll puff pastry onto a clean work surface, a little thinner at the edges. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet.

  • Spoon the filling down the middle length of the pastry sheet. Crack 1 egg into a cup but do not beat it. Brush the edges of the puff pastry with egg white and close the pastry around the filling. Close the ends of the roll and carefully turn it over so the seam is on the bottom.

  • Beat what remains of the egg; brush over the top of puff pastry and cut a few slits in the pastry.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the strudel is golden brown, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'Parmesan-style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.

For me it was too salty. Otherwise I will make it again but leave out the 1 tsp. of salt entirely since the cottage cheese already contains salt and I prefer things not too salty. For my husband the level of salt was fine; he likes a lot of salt. However he thought it wasn't crispy enough and should be baked a little longer than the 30 minutes to get crispier. One tip: Be sure to drain your spinach very well ( take the time press all excess water out.) It easy to prepare. but I did make 2 changes: I didn't do the 2nd egg brushed onto the dough. I used refrigerated pastry puff sheet that was already ready-to-use. Read More
