  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 medium onion
  • 5 cup spinach
  • 2 ounce mozzarella cheese
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/4 cup flour, all-purpose
  • 17 ounce puff pastry, frozen, ready-to-bake

Serve With

  • 2 medium orange


  • Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat.
  • Mince garlic and chop onion; add to skillet and cook until tender, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the spinach and cook for 5 minutes or until wilted. Remove the spinach mixture from the heat and let cool to room temperature, then drain well in a colander, pressing to squeeze out any excess liquid. Return the spinach mixture to the skillet. Grate the cheese and add to the skillet along with the lemon juice.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.
  • Sprinkle your work surface with the flour. Unfold 1 pastry sheet on the work surface; roll into a 12-inch square, then cut into 8 (3-inch) squares. Repeat with the remaining pastry sheets.
  • Brush edges of the squares with the egg mixture, then place about 2 teaspoons spinach mixture in the center of each. Fold the pastry over the filling to form triangles. Press the edges to seal, then crimp the edges with a fork.
  • Place the filled pastries onto 2 baking sheets; brushing more of the egg mixture over top.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool before serving.
  • Serve with orange wedges on the side.
