Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 15

2 cups self raising flour (gluten free if required)
2 cups Greek Yoghurt ([Linkhttp://recipeyum.com.au/lactose-free-yoghurt/53948/ lactose free yoghurt] if required)
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed (exclude for low FODMAP)
350 g baby spinach
1 lemon, zested and juiced
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Salt and pepper
3 tomatoes, diced (or sundried tomatoes)
1 1/2 cups grated cheese (lactose free if required or substitute with [Linkhttp://recipeyum.com.au/easy-homemade-lactose-free-ricotta/ ricotta])
Flour, to dust the bench top
1/4 cup milk, to glaze prior to baking (lactose free if required)

  • Preheat the oven to 220 degrees and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • Sift flour into a bowl, gradually add the yoghurt and stir until a dough is formed. Add more flour if the dough is too wet to knead.
  • Knead the dough on a lightly floured bench top for 5 minutes. Set aside to rest.
  • Sauté the garlic in a frypan with oil for 1 minute. Add the spinach, lemon zest, juice of half a lemon, cinnamon, season with salt and pepper and stir. Remove from the heat once the spinach has wilted, about 1 - 2 minutes. Allow to cool and roll the dough.
  • Roll the dough into a flat 30 cm by 20 cm rectangle of 1/2 cm thickness.
  • Spread the cheese, spinach and tomato onto the dough, in that order. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Roll the dough into a cylinder from the top of the longer 30 cm end.
  • Cut the roll into 2cm slices with a sharp knife and place on a baking tray.

  • Push the slices together so they touch. Glaze with milk.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until the scrolls turn slightly brown on the top, and then serve.

  • Tips
  • For a low fat option use low fat yoghurt and [Linkhttp://recipeyum.com.au/easy-homemade-lactose-free-ricotta/ ricotta].
  • The roll can be made ahead and frozen whole or in slices. When ready to cook, allow to defrost prior to slicing, pushing together and baking. I used 9 slices in this bake and froze the rest for later.
