Cheesy Spinach Pouches (vegetarian) / Torbice sa sirom i špinatom (vegetarijanske)

I really liked these cheesy pouches from a while back, so I had to try out a variation with spinach and cheese filling. Let me tell you, these did not disappoint. Just like the initial cheesy pouches, these can be reheated on the following day and will taste just as good.  All you need to do is to loosely wrap them in aluminum foil and pop them in the oven at 200°C for 10-15 minutes.

METHOD:

First prepare the filling by quickly sautéing spinach on olive oil with minced garlic for a minute or two, just until it slightly wilts down. Season with salt and pepper, remove from heat and stir in cream cheese.

Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. To assemble the dough, mix together all of the ingredients and knead for about five minutes, until the dough is pliable and smooth. If necessary, add a bit more flour or sparkling water. Roll the dough out on a well-floured surface and cut into large circles. I used a huge mug for this. Re-roll the scraps and repeat until all the dough is used up.

Place a scoop of filling on each circle, lightly brush the edges with water, fold over, seal and tightly press with a fork. Spread the filled pouches on a prepared baking sheet and lightly brush each one with a bit of water. Mix together all of the topping ingredients and lightly sprinkle each pouch. Bake for 30 minutes, until crispy and golden brown. Serve warm.

Toliko su mi se svidjele torbice sa šunkom i sirom koje sam smućkala ranije, da sam morala isprobati i varijantu sa špinatom i sirom. Uopće me nisu razočarale, a baš kao i one prije, ovi su snackovi super i dan poslije kada ih podgrijete. Samo ih labavo umotajte u aluminijsku foliju i ubacite u pećnicu zagrijanu na 200°C na 10-15 minuta.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 20 torbica / 0,92 kn po torbici / 18,43 kn za sve)

Za nadjev:

2 žlice maslinovog ulja (0,66 kn)

Veliki pregršt svježeg špinata (5,00 kn)

2 češnja češnjaka, sitno nasjeckana (0,50 kn)

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

½ šalice svježeg sira (2,50 kn)

Za tijesto:

2 šalice glatkog brašna (1,00 kn)

1 žličica soli (0,01 kn)

2 žličice šećera (0,04 kn)

1 žličica praška za pecivo (0,10 kn)

1 šalica svježeg sira (5,00 kn)

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

¼ šalice suncokretovog ulja (0,75 kn)

¼ šalice gazirane mineralne vode (0,25 kn)

Začini za posipanje:

Dobar prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

Dobar prstohvat svježe mljevenog crnog papra (0,25 kn)

1 žlica sezama (0,50 kn)

Dodatno:

Brašno za posipanje (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Prvo spremite nadjev tako da minutu-dvije kratko prodinstate špinat na maslinovom ulju i sjeckanom češnjaku, samo dok ne povene. Začinite sa solju i paprom, maknite s vatre i umiješajte sir.

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C i obložite protvan papirom za pečenje. Pomiješajte sve sastojke za tijesto i mijesite oko pet minuta, dok tijesto ne bude glatko i prestane se lijepiti za ruke. Po potrebi, dodajte mrvicu brašna ili mineralne vode. Razvaljajte tijesto na dobro pobrašnjenoj radnoj plohi i režite u velike krugove. Ja sam kao kalup upotrijebila ogromnu šalicu. Ponovno umijesite i razvaljajte ostatke tijesta i izrežite još krugova dok ne iskoristite svo tijesto.

Na svaki krug stavite malo nadjeva, premažite rubove vodom, presavinite i rubove dobro pritisnite vilicom. Nadjevene torbice raširite po pripremljenom protvanu pa svaku lagano premažite sa malo vode. Izmiješajte sve začine i posipajte po torbicama. Pecite oko 30 minuta, dok ne budu hrskave i zlatno-smeđe. Poslužite toplo.
