RECIPE: Tatsoi and Cottage Cheese in Puff Pastry #ad #NewHoodCC

NEWS, REVIEWS | | June 25, 2014 at 10:07 am

A little while back Hood asked me if I would host a party to get my friends to try out the new Hood Cottage Cheese and I even though the last few weeks (months) of school felt like I like in a fast forward time machine with just about everything due (concerts + field trips + MCAs + projects + art shows etc) I said yes.

I love parties. I find them utterly exhausting and swear right after it is my last one but I would be lying if I said I did not love hosting. My favorite thing about hosting is cooking. Cooking is my labor of love and I love experimenting. Yes, I could serve up Hood cottage cheese just as a dip, they are honestly fabulous on their own, but I consider it my duty to take ingredients to a place they have never been before.

I could share with you how I recreated Hood’s amazing selection of recipes (trust me they are amazing), which are here if you want to take a look at their recipes but I wanted to add some of my concoctions. Also, while I will be sharing my party pics that is no “take home” for you since you would have missed being my guest so to make up for that I will be sharing a few of the recipes I served.

I used Tatsoi in this recipe and the honest truth is before this year I had no idea what Tatsoi was but thanks to my CSA (Community Shared Agriculture or simply we pay a farmer to get a weekly supply of what his farm yields) I’m discovering new vegetables. While I used Tatsoi here, you could easily swop it out for spinach, kale, arugula or basically any green your heart desires.

Tatsoi and Cottage Cheese in Puff Pastry


1 X bunch Tatsoi

1/4 cup of Hood Cottage Cheese

salt to taste

1/2 teaspoon garam masala (you can add any spice that you fancy)

1 roll of puff pastry (remove from freezer 30 minutes before use)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Blend the Tatso and cottage cheese until smooth creamy mixture. Add salt and garam masala to mixture. Unroll/unpack puff pastry so it is one sheet. Smear a thin layer of mixture on puff pastry. Start rolling the puff pastry carefully like a swiss roll. Cut across the rings so you reveal a spiral and place spiral side down on baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes (oven types may vary so please adjust as you see it start to get golden brown.

The lovely thing about this recipe is that you can freeze those spirals prior to baking it and have it ready for any time. Fabulous appetizer when guests drop by. While I used the regular Hood cottage cheese in this recipe you may want to check out their new additions: Cucumber and Dill and  also Garden Vegetable. These add more flavor so you can skip on spices to add.

Keep an eye out for my next post where I give you a quick overview of some of the recipes I made and I detail out one of them. Even the kids loved this recipe!
