Spinach Tortilla Borek

T for Turkey. Turkey has a unique distinction of belonging to two continents, Asia and Europe. "Turkish cuisine is largely the heritage of Ottoman cuisine, which can be described as a fusion and refinement of Central Asian, Caucasian, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and Balkan cuisines" says wiki.

These spinach tortilla rolls fall into the fusion category of their cooking. Borek is a family of salty pastries made using a thicker form of phyllo dough. Here a spinach filling along with cheese is rolled into a tortilla, sliced and baked until crisp to make a fantastic snack.

It is a very addictive, healthy and filling meal. My family has hooked onto this snack and so it ranks very high in the list of after school snacks!!

To Prepare the Filling - 
Cook the thawed spinach separately and set aside.

In a heated pan, add oil and saute the onions until golden brown.

Add paprika or red chilli powder as needed. 

Mix in the cooked spinach and sprinkle salt as needed.

Mix well and remove from heat.

Preheat the oven to 425 °F.

Spread the filling evenly all over the tortilla, sprinkle cheese as needed.
