Dinner time isn’t always the easiest in our house. I eat as little meat as possible while everyone else puts their noses up at some of my meals. Tonight was a home run in every way. I made chicken for Julian and his friend but decided I was going to put my creation, that is new to me on their plates. I put together frozen spinach, mushrooms, garlic, red onions and a little olive oil and sauted it on the stove top. Once all the liquid evaporated I put it in puff pastry dough – generic store-brand -mine was from Target. I beat one egg, added some water to it and did an egg wash on top. I cut three holes on top for ventilation and baked it at 425 for 15 minutes. Everybody got a slice and everybody ate it! In half of my “pie” I added feta cheese for myself I didn’t want to spring too much taste on them in one meal!
All you need is one sheet of the puff pastry dough, which I cooked it on my Pampered Chef stone. Pre-heat your oven to 425°. Saute your red onion, I used a quarter of an onion, 3 cloves of garlic, minced. Once your onion is translucent add your 8 ounces of frozen spiniach and 8 ounces of mushrooms (whichever kind you like). Add some salt, pepper, parsley and oregano, mix in and stir occasionally until all liquid evaporates. Pile it into your pastry dough, fold up the edges to close it up, slice a few holes on top and brush on the egg wash. Pop it in the oven, in 15 minutes you have an amazing meal/side dish. When you take it out give it 5 minutes to rest before cutting into it.
