1-2 tbsp crème fraîche
2 tbsp tomato puree

1. Spinach filling: sauté onion and garlic in butter, add spinach, steam briefly. Add crème fraîche and tomato puree, mix, season. Remove from plate, let cool a bit. Mix together with egg, breadcrumbs and cheese cubes.

2. Heat frying pan on medium-high heat without adding fat. Add a tortilla and cover evenly with ¼ of the spinach-cheese filling. Cook covered for about 5 mins, until cheese melts.

3. Place another tortilla on the spinach-cheese filling, press down, cook covered for another 2-3 mins, remove from pan and place on a cooking board. Using a sharp bread knife, cut into pieces, stack as shown in the photo, and serve.

Tip: Replace fresh spinach with around 320 g of frozen, thawed spinach leaves.
