Vegan Spinach, Broccoli & Feta Bourkas

Hi lovelies!

In one word – addiction.

If you put a bowl of these bourekas pastries next to me, I’m afraid I’ll snack on them unconsciously. As if it wasn’t the fattiest food in the world. Bourekas pastry is so crispy on the outside that all you hear in your bite is one long crunch sound accompanied by delicious filling that just oozes out. This vegan bourekas is stuffed with spinach, broccoli, vegan feta, and mozzarella cheese. It’s savory and best served with a well-seasoned grated tomato dip that’s so easy to make.

Saturday's Brunch

This is a typical Israeli breakfast. You would mostly find us having these on Saturday mornings before we go with the entire family to the beach. We would also take these with us to the beach or a picnic and enjoy breakfast in the sun and out in the open air. Usually, these bourekas are accompanied by different dips like hummus, tahini, tomato dip, labneh with zaatar, and a variety of different fresh salads like Israeli salad, Greek salad. … to me, it’s ok if I start the day like this, every day!

This time I used store-bought puff pastry. If there’s a puff pastry that’s ready and good, then why not make it easier and put the effort into an insanely delicious filling? I made this filling with the Vegan Baked Almond Feta Cheese which I make quite often. And it’s so easy to make! It also yields A nice portion of “cheese” from just one cup of peeled almonds!!

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 180 ° C.

Blanching Spinach

  • Boil a large amount of hot water either in a pot or kettle.

Spinach, Broccoli & Feta Filling

  • Add the chopped spinach and broccoli to the feta cheese and spices and mix well to obtain a uniform mixture.
  • Lightly flour a work surface and spread the puff pastry with the longer side in front of you. Divide the puff pastry into 2 equal parts so we can create 2 rolled rolls.
  • Spread the filling evenly on the 2 parts, leaving a space of 1 cm at the edges. Careful not to put too much filling otherwise, the dough will tear.
  • Sprinkle some mozzarella cheese over the filling and start rolling until the end of the dough.

  • Bake the bourekas for about 30-40 minutes or until golden and crispy.
