Spinach Roulade #2

ingredients

serves 4
675 g (1 1/2 lb) fresb spinach, washed and picked over
15 g (1/2 oz) butter
4 eggs, separated
grated nutmeg
salt and pepper
100 g (4 oz) curd cheese
150 ml (1/4 pt) sour cream
4 spring onions, finely chopped

method

1. Cook the spinach without any extra water.

2. Drain it very well (press it between two plates) and either chop the spinach very finely or blend it just enough to chop it.

3. Add the butter, egg yolks, grated nutmeg and salt and pepper to taste.

4. Mix together very well. Whisk the egg whites until they are stiff.

5. Fold a spoonful of the beaten whites into the spinach mixture to lighten it and then fold in the remaining whites.

6. Mix through carefully. Turn the mixture into a Swiss roll tin 38 x 25 cm (15 x 10 in) which has been lined with greased paper or foil.

7. Bake at 200°C (400°F) Gas 6 for 10 minutes only.

8. While the spinach is cooking, mix the curd cheese with the sour cream and spring onions. Season to taste.

9. Have a clean tea towel spread on a board and when the spinach mixture is cooked, turn it upside down onto the tea towel.

10. Carefully peel off the paper or foil.

11. Spread the cheese and sour cream mixture over the spinach, taking care not to tear the surface.

12. Using the tea towel to help you, roll the spinach up into a roll and onto serving plate.

13. Serve immediately.

Although this is usually served hot, it is, in fact, very good cold.
