Phyllo Pastries with Cottage Cheese and Spinach and Two Giveaways

Gay Lea’s Nordica Cottage Cheese is a healthy ingredient for a multitude of foods from smoothies, to cooking, to baking. Nordica Cottage Cheese can be used as a supplement ingredient that provides a low in fat, high in protein alternative. I enjoy using cottage cheese in a variety of dishes such as in desserts, lasagna and other pasta dishes. I made our favourite savoury snack using cottage cheese and spinach wrapped in phyllo pastry that we enjoy during teatime. 


To make this Phyllo Pastries with Cottage Cheese and Spinach you will need

1/4 cup olive oil to apply between the phyllo pastries
1/4 cup onion chopped
1 tbsp garlic cloves
1 cup cottage cheese
1 egg
2 cups or 1 bunch of spinach washed
1/2 tsp salt
pepper to taste
1/4 cup chopped green onion
10 Phyllo dough sheets

Over medium heat, sauté the onion and garlic until softened and then add the spinach, salt and pepper. When the spinach has cooked, add the chopped green onions remove from heat and let it cool slightly. 

In a bowl add cottage cheese, egg and the cooked onion spinach mixture and mix well. 
When layering the phyllo sheets brush each sheet of phyllo lightly with oil. Place phyllo sheets one at a time in an oiled 8"x 8" square glass baking dish and lay five sheets. Then place the filling and put five phyllo sheets over it, make sure to brush with oil. 
Brush the top with oil and score by cutting into it before baking it for about 15 to 20 minutes in a preheated 375F until it is golden brown.
