Mediterranean Phyllo Dough Wraps

I had phyllo dough in my freezer and thought about recipes to prepare and dishes I had eaten in the past using phyllo dough. I love the light airiness of the delicate sheets. My creative juices started flowing, and now I have made several recipes using phyllo dough. I’ve found it makes a gourmet meal that is easy and very delicious!

My first recipe was Mediterranean phyllo dough wrap. The second one was like an Italian stromboli or calzone (very good, but I prefer the outer layer to be pizza dough).

Hope you will try to prepare a meal using phyllo dough. It is very delicate, so once you get the hang of how to use it, it’s easy to wrap around a veggie sauté with cheese.

To Healthy Eating!

Instructions
  1. Prepare all the vegetables for sauté.
  2. Sauté first five ingredients in a large pan on the stovetop. Cook onions first, then add other ingredients. Sauté on medium heat until all ingredients are blended nicely and cooked.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Phyllo Dough
  1. If frozen, allow dough to defrost 2-4 hours in refrigerator.
  2. Place a layer of parchment paper sprayed with olive oil cooking spray on a cookie sheet with a one-inch lip.
  3. Open phyllo dough sheets carefully. Place 3-4 sheets on the parchment paper and spray with olive oil spray. (Cover remaining sheets with a clean damp kitchen towel to keep moist while you are working on your first wrap.)
Putting it all together!
  1. Once you have the phyllo dough placed on the cookie sheet, you are ready to spread cheese across the dough (amount is your choice).
  2. Add 1/3 of the sauté off-center toward the bottom half of the dough so you have plenty of room to roll up.
  3. Begin to wrap! Carefully bring the bottom up and over the sauté, tucking in the left and right sides of the dough as you roll.
  4. With a pastry brush, do an egg white (or Just Egg) wash on top of the wrapped sauté. Sprinkle with Everything But the Bagel seasoning and start another roll.
  5. This should make 3-4 large wraps.
  6. Once all wraps are made, bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.
Recipe Notes

Melissa's Modifications:  As mentioned, there are so many options to prepare a delicious, nutritious meal using phyllo dough. Additionally, think about making a dessert using phyllo dough. Baklava and apple strudel are a couple of my favorites. Of course, I would "veganize" them, but they will be equally delicious using Melissa's Modifications!
