Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 2 min.
Crispy spinach rolls
Prepare 250 g cooked spinach, then chop coarsly with a knife.

Stage 2 - 7 min.
Crispy spinach rolls
Lightly fry 125 g small pieces of bacon in a frying pan without adding any extra fat.

When cooked to your taste, tip the bacon into a bowl, leaving the cooking fat in the pan.

Stage 3 - 8 min.
Crispy spinach rolls
Prepare 1 onion, and chop finely.

Tip into the pan and cook in the bacon fat until lightly browned, then salt and pepper.

Stage 4 - 8 min.
Crispy spinach rolls
Pour 1 glass dry white wine into the pan and deglaze it, then leave to cook until the wine has completely evaporated.

Tip into the bowl with the bacon.

Stage 5 - 3 min.
Crispy spinach rolls
Chop 2 hard-boiled eggs, then tip into the bowl with the bacon.

Stage 6 - 3 min.
Crispy spinach rolls
Add the chopped spinach and 50 ml cream to the bowl, salt, pepper and mix well.

Stage 7 - 2 min.
Crispy spinach rolls
Place a little of the mixture in a long sausage shape near one side of a sheet of brik.

Stage 8 - 2 min.
Crispy spinach rolls
Roll up the sheet of pastry to form a long roll.

Stage 9 - 25 min.
Crispy spinach rolls
Use up the rest of the filling like this.

Stage 10 - 15 min.
Crispy spinach rolls
Pour 100 ml oil into a large frying pan on medium heat. There should be a shallow depth of oil all over the pan to cook the rolls properly.

When the oil is hot, cook the rolls evenly all over, turning them with tongs if possible (the easiest way).

Do be careful not to let them brown too much. This can happen quickly, so you must keep an eye on the rolls from the time they go into the pan.

Stage 11 - 25 min.
Crispy spinach rolls
Prepare the rice with cashew nuts: cook the rice, and then add 100 g cashew nuts, coarsly chopped and dry-roasted in a pan for 2 or 3 minutes.

Stage 12
Crispy spinach rolls
Serve 2 rolls per person.
The proportions for the filling can be varied according to your taste, so don't hesitate to add a little more or a little less of something.
Can be frozen uncooked, but once cooked they do not keep.
Home made.
