Looking for a delicious way to start your next gathering? Spinach roulade is the perfect choice—a savory and nutritious appetizer that’s as pleasing to the palate as it is to the eye.


  • 4 cups fresh spinach leaves, washed and chopped
  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Pinch of nutmeg


  1. Prepare the Spinach Mixture:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    • In a large skillet, wilt the chopped spinach over medium heat until it’s tender and most of the liquid has evaporated. Remove from heat and let cool.
  2. Make the Batter:
    • In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, Parmesan cheese, ricotta cheese, Greek yogurt, flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and nutmeg until smooth.
  3. Whip the Egg Whites:
    • In a separate clean bowl, whip the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  4. Combine and Bake:
    • Gently fold the whipped egg whites into the spinach mixture until well combined.
    • Spread the mixture evenly onto the prepared baking sheet, smoothing the top.
  5. Bake:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the roulade is set.
  6. Roll and Serve:
    • Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly. Carefully roll the roulade from the short end using the parchment paper as a guide. Allow it to cool completely before slicing.
  7. Presentation:
    • Slice the roulade into rounds and serve as an appetizer or light meal. Garnish with fresh herbs or a drizzle of olive oil, if desired.

This spinach roulade not only impresses with its vibrant green color and elegant swirls but also delivers a burst of flavor that’s sure to please even the most discerning palates. Perfect for parties or as a delightful snack, it’s a healthy choice that doesn’t compromise on taste.

Enjoy this nutritious treat with friends and family, and savor each bite knowing you’ve served up something both delicious and good for you!
