Once upon a time, I used to make my own spinach rolls or ‘spanakopita’ back in the days when I had more time on my hands. I’d get my own phyllo, make my own spinach and feta cheese filling, and roll away to my hearts content. But, that was back then. As if I wasn’t busy enough, I then started to go on this review journey with thingsthatwedo.com writing reviews whenever I can. While I haven’t stopped loving spinach rolls, I just choose to use my time differently now.
Recently, a colleague of mine highly recommended this brand of spinach rolls to me. I can’t even give you the name of the product because I can’t read it and I don’t think I have Greek characters on my computer so you’ll just have to go by the photos I have here. She actually got me the bag and since then, I’ve purchased my own bag at my local supermarket. If you see it at your grocery store, just try them and let me know what you think!
Product review: What happened?
If you love savory foods with a crunch, then you’re going to love these spinach rolls. They’re easy enough to make and even easier to enjoy. We preheat the oven to 375 degrees, stick some in the oven on parchment paper, wait about 30 minutes or until the desired colour of brown toasty goodness and take out the cooked spinach rolls. We wait until the spinach rolls have cooled off enough to NOT burn our tongues and we gobble them up.
My daughter doesn’t like the filling but she loves the phyllo so mommy here gets to enjoy the spinach and feta based filling with most of my phyllo gone. That’s what being a mommy is all about but I’m okay with it because it’s always good to see her enjoying something different. It’s also an easy way to add some diversity to her culinary food world (my kid also gets a decent helping of Japanese udon noodles and Greek souvlaki when we go out for dinner). After all, at thingsthatwedo.com, trying and testing is the key to exploration!
So, if you’ve never had feta cheese or phyllo before, allow me to describe the flavours of the spinach roll. Now, the exterior phyllo is crunchy and buttery in flavour. Feta cheese is somewhat tart and definitely is salty but has a crumbly ricotta like texture when cooked. Spinach being the vegetable that it is really helps to balance out the flavours. I’m pretty sure there are eggs in the filling too to add to its creaminess.
These spinach rolls will be at my next home party and they’ll be at my next potluck too. I promise not to lie and take credit for making them but I’ll take all the credit for taking them to the next party that I go to. The only caution I’ll put on these spinach rolls is: watch how many you eat! They’re so yummy, it’s easy to plow through a whole bunch before realizing that you’ve eaten the entire plate of spinach rolls!
