Cindy's Baby Bella Mushroom & Spinach Turnovers

by Fungi Perfecti

Mushroom Recipes

  • 17 oz frozen ready-to-bake puff pastry
  • 1 tbsp butter or margarine
  • ~1½ cups baby bella mushrooms
  • 10 oz frozen chopped spinach
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 clove fresh garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

To brush the turnover you will need

  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 °F. Roll each puff pastry sheet into a 12-inch square. Cut each square into four 6-inch squares.

Heat olive oil & butter in large skillet over medium heat and cook mushrooms with chopped garlic for about 2 minutes, then add in spinach. Let it all cook together for about 3 minutes.

Once cooked, place mixture in a large bowl. Stir in mozzarella, ricotta, salt and pepper. Place approximately ¼ cup of spinach-mushroom filling onto each 6-inch square of pastry. Moisten all pastry edges lightly with water. Fold each pastry square over filling to form triangles. Use the edge of a fork to seal edges together. Brush tops of each turnover with egg & olive oil mixture. Using a small sharp knife, make 2 or 3 slits on top of each turnover. Bake in two batches on ungreased cooked sheets for 20 minutes, or until pastry is golden brown.
