There's plenty of recipes around for these, but these are a healthy twist. Great as a starter for a healthy Greek inspired dinner party or the lunchbox.

Really tasty, quick and healthy idea! Using some just opened mountain bread I found it was very easy to roll so didn't have to spray with water. I made two each which made a nice filling lunch on its own.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wilt the spinach and squeeze any moisture out.
  2. Combine with ricotta, olives, herbs and seasoning.
  3. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  4. Spray the bread with a little water to make it pliable. Spoon a little of the spinach mixture along the bottom of the bread, leaving some room at the sides. Fold the sides in and then roll up.
  5. Spray with oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  6. Spray a baking tray with oil and arrange the parcels, covering with foil. Bake for 20 minutes.
  7. Remove foil and bake another 5-10 minutes until the tops are golden.
