Spinach, Onion and Cheese Turnovers

Recommended Posts

Makes 12 Turnovers


3 10-ounce packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed

1 onion

6 Kraft 2% mozarella cheese slices, cut in half

1/4 cup chopped parsley

1 1/2 teaspoons dried dill

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 cup lemon juice

6 large whole-wheat flour tortillas

1 tablespoon olive oil, for brushing


Squeeze as much water as possible from the thawed spinach and set aside. Heat 1/4 cup water in a large skillet and cook the onion until it is soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in the parsley, dill, salt, pepper and chopped spinach. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the mixture is very dry. Stir in the lemon juice.


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. To assemble the turnovers, cut a tortillas in half and wet all the edges of one half with water, using your fingers or a pastry brush. Place half a slice of cheese and about 2 tablespoons of filling in the center of the tortilla half. Now imagine the tortillas divided into thirds. Fold one edge over, matching the curves, and press the curved edge firmly to seal it. Fold the remaining edge over and press firmly to seal. Brush or spray lightly with olive oil. Repeat with the second tortilla half and the remaining tortillas.


Place the turnovers on a baking sheet and bake until lightly browned, about 25 minutes.
