Roasted Garlic & Spinach Spirals

Recipe by jonesies

Lighter spirals full of flavor. Taken from the Heart Healthy cookbook. Makes a great low-cal appetizer or party dish. Tip: for best result, cover tortilla rolls and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours before serving.

If you are a fan of a hummus-like bean dip, the flavor of these spirals will appeal to you. I think that more roasted garlic would increase the impact, but otherwise felt that these were a nice, light addition to the buffet at my holiday open house.
