Ingredients you'll need:

  • 1 cup of gruyere cheese, grated
  • 250 g frozen spinach
  • 1 cup of chicken, chopped cooked
  • 1 pinch of ground black pepper, fresh

How to make Spinach and Chicken Roulade:

  1. Thaw the spinach and drain well. Separate the eggs. Place spinach, egg yolks, cornflour, nutmeg and pepper in the bowl of a food processor or blender. Process until combined.
  2. Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Fold the spinach mixture into egg whites. Pour into a baking-paper-lined 12cm x 8cm sponge roll tin. Bake at 190°C for 10 to 15 minutes or until the roulade springs back when lightly touched with a finger.
  3. Turn onto a clean tea towel sprinkled with breadcrumbs. Roll up from the short side like a sponge roll. Leave to stand for 1 minute then unroll and sprinkle with cheese and chicken. Re-roll and return roulade to over for 5 minutes.
  4. Mix sour cream and mustard together. Cut roulade into slices. Place on a plate and garnish with sour cream mixture and fresh herbs.
