Spinach & Zucchini Calzones
« on: February 27, 2015, 01:59:38 am »
Katie gave me this calzone mold for Christmas, today is the first time I've used it.  I highly recommend it, it's so easy and they look good too.

This recipe is based on an earlier one I posted - Zucchini & Rice Pie.

Name of Recipe: Spinach & Zucchini Calzones
Number of People: Makes 3 large ones using this calzone mold.

Ingredients:
45 g cheddar cheese, cubed
120 g cooked spinach, squeezed of all liquid
150 g zucchini cut into 5 cm chunks
50 g red onion halved
small handful of parsley, stems removed
1 egg
40 g uncooked long-grain rice
1 tbs olive oil - I used confit of garlic oil plus 1 small confit of garlic, chopped
S & P to taste
2 sheets puff pastry, thawed


Preparation:
Preheat oven to 180o C, fan forced

Grate cheese 4 sec/speed 8.  Remove from bowl.  No need to clean bowl.
Add onion, spinach, zucchini & parsley to TM bowl and chop 2 sec/speed 5.
Add grated cheese, egg, rice, S & P and oil.
Mix 3 sec/reverse/speed 5

If using the mold, follow the manufacturers instructions. You'll be able to make the third calzone from re-rolling the excess pastry from the first 2.

Brush the completed calzone with olive oil and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

Bake on a lined tray in the top part of the oven for 30 minutes.  Remove from tray, place on a wire rack upside down for a further 10 minutes.

These are really nice served with a pot of sweet chilli sauce for dunking.


Tips/Hints:

If making the calzones by hand use a small side plate as a template.  You can obviously make these as big or as small as you want.

Brilliant. I didn't know you could get a Calzone mould. I either under fill or over fill mine.
