Spinach Roulade with Goats Cheese

When you are bored of eggs, try a roulade for a low carb dish.  This spinach roulade is great served with a salad.

I was thinking of a recipe for spinach roulade, and although Feta is the natural cheese to sit alongside spinach, I put Feta on the bench and gave goats cheese a try.  Spinach and goats cheese are delicious together in a salad or quiche form, so why not in a roulade?

My love of the roulade continues as I love how simple it is, as well as being a great low carb and gluten free main dish.   For such a simple dish, I wanted to keep the filling just as simple and only used a soft goats cheese with some fresh chopped chives.

If you don’t have fresh spinach, defrosted frozen spinach will do instead.  Just squeeze any extra water out of it before adding to the egg mixture to avoid a soggy roulade.   I added a dash of nutmeg too to give the spinach a little lift.

Feel free to add a little something extra to the goat’s cheese filling if you want to pep it up a bit.  I think some red chilli flakes would be delicious.  Or some chopped walnuts.   Take the spinach roulade, make it your own and devour every slice!
