Spinach Sundried Tomato Puff Pastry Braid
I had some puff pastry left over from another recipe. Enlisting the “Pie Guy” Ken help me as he can handle pastry like nobodies business. I kinda used what I had hanging around and just went for it. This Spinach Sundried Tomato Puff Pastry Braid recipe turned out fantastic. It would make a great brunch item with a big gorgeous salad or another vegetarian entree.
It would also work well at Christmas with red and green coloring. Any way you slice it (haha), it is great. I hope you try this one out!!
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1/3 cup red onion, diced
1-2 garlic clove, minced
300 gm. package frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1/3 cup chopped sun-dried cherry tomatoes, packed in oil
2 eggs, beaten
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/3 cup crumbled light feta
Salt and pepper to taste
Nutmeg, freshly grated
1/2 pkg. 397 gm. package puff pastry
Eggwash, one egg mixed with 1 tsp. water
Preheat oven to 450F.
Heat the oil in a small frypan and add the onion and garlic, saute until translucent. Mix spinach, tomatoes, eggs, lemon juice, feta, salt, pepper, nutmeg, red onion, and garlic together.
Roll out pastry to a 12″x9″ rectangle. Place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Spread mixture down the middle third.
Now make diagonal cuts, starting at the top left, about 1″ apart almost to the filling. Like the left side of a V. Repeat on the right side in the opposite direction like the right side of a V.
Alternating strips from side to side fold over filling like a braid. Seal the overlaps with the egg wash. Brush the top with the egg wash.
Bake for 25 min. or until golden brown.
Let sit for 5 min. and then slice and enjoy!!

Wow, that looks fantastic for Easter! How elegant it would be on the buffet table. Bet we could even do it with chard or even kale….the possibilities are endless!

I want to make this recipe without the feta cheese .My daughters are vegan and I can’t use the feta, what would be a good substitute?
