Tarragon Mushroom Triangles
1 T. olive oil
1/2 C. chopped red onions
2 t. dried tarragon
1/8 t. ground red pepper
8 oz. mushrooms, coarsely chopped
1/2 C. thawed frozen chopped spinach, squeezed dry
1/4 C. chopped roasted sweet red peppers
2 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
Pinch of grated nutmeg
16 sheets phyllo dough (thawed, if frozen)
2 t. margarine, melted
In a large no-stick frying pan over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the onions,
tarragon and ground pepper; cook, stirring frequently, for 4 minutes. Add the
mushrooms; cook for 6-8 minutes, or until all the liquid given off by the
mushrooms has evaporated.
Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Add the spinach and red peppers; mix well.
Stir in the feta and nutmeg. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Unroll the phyllo and cover it with a piece of plastic to keep it from drying
out. Peel off 2 sheets and lay the double layer on your work surface.
Melt 4 T. butter. Cut the phyllo into thirds lengthwise. Brush lightly with the
butter. Place a tablespoon of filling in the bottom corner of each strip. Fold
over once to make a triangle; continue folding over as if folding a flag. Place
on a baking sheet. Repeat to use all the remaining phyllo and filling of the
remaining margarine mixture.
Brush the tops of the triangles with the remaining butter mixture. Bake 12-15
minutes, or until golden.
