Ingredients
  

  • 1 Head Garlic
  • 3-4 t. Extra virgin olive oil divided
  • 1 large Onion chopped finely
  • 4 C. Mushrooms sliced, a variety would be awesome
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 t. Herbs de Provence crushed
  • 1/4 C White wine
  • 7-8 C. Fresh Spinach cleaned, dried
  • 1 Box Puff Pastry make sure there are 2 pieces so you have a top and a bottom

Instructions
 

For Roasted Garlic

  • Cut the top of the garlic head off to expose most of the cloves and drizzle with a small amount of olive oil. Sprinkle a bit of salt and seal in a piece of foil.
  • Roast at 350 degrees F for 30-40 minutes, until soft and golden.
  • Set this aside.

For Mushroom Mixture

  • Heat a large sauté pan and add a teaspoon of olive oil.
  • When medium hot, add the onion and sauté until getting a bit of color.
  • Add mushrooms and a small amount of salt to help the mushrooms to release their juices.
  • Crumble and add the Herbs de Provence.
  • Allow the mushrooms to brown a bit by not stirring too often.
  • When the pan starts to get a bit dry deglaze with the white wine to pick up the flavorful brown bits. You could also substitute vegetable broth for the white wine.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Place in a bowl while you cook the spinach.

For the Spinach

  • Heat the large sauté pan and add a teaspoon of olive oil.
  • When medium hot, add the spinach and toss occasionally to allow the spinach to wilt down.
  • Season with salt and pepper.

To assemble the Puff Pastry

  • Defrost your puff pastry according to the directions on the box.
  • Top with mushroom mixture leaving about a 1" border.
  • Then add the spinach and top that with roasted cloves of garlic.
  • Make sure all of the components are seasoned well.
  • Now put the second piece of puff pastry over the top and pinch and roll under the edge to seal.
  • Use a knife to score the top to allow steam to escape.
  • Brush the top with olive oil and place in a preheated 350 degree F oven.
  • Bake for about 22-25 minutes until puffed and golden brown.

Notes

I have also added browned Field Roast apple sage sausage for an even heartier version.
