Spinach Mushroom Pockets

  • Yield : 12-ish
  • Cook Time : 20m

You can fill these with pretty much anything. They get weird if you put the in the fridge as leftovers but if you pop them back in the oven they become yummy again! They make a great party food!


  • 1 package of puff pastry
  • 16 oz sliced mushrooms
  • 2 bags of spinach (about 10 oz)
  • 1.5 Tablespoons garlic, minced
  • pinch salt
  • 1 block of extra firm tofu (about 15 oz)- pressed or water squeezed out
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2.5 Tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon non dairy milk


Step 1

Thaw puff pastry on counter top for 30 minutes according to the package

Step 2

in a large pot heat heat the mushrooms (no oil needed) and once they release a lot of their liquid, add 1.5 teaspoons of garlic and the spinach and place a lid on top. Watch it closely. Once it starts to wilt add a pinch of salt and mix it in then remove it from the heat and remove the lid.

Step 3

Combine all other ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

Step 4

Roll out the puff pastry a bit to get it thinner then cut into the shapes you want to fill. Fill with stuffing and pinch edges closed with a fork.

Step 5

Cook according to the package (about 20 minutes)

    Do you have a dipping sauce that you recommend?

      I used marinara! Let me know if you try something that also works šŸ™‚

    These are so good and so easy – thank you!! I’ve made them twice, once with the original recipe and once with some tweaks because I didn’t have everything. Both were delicious. The tweaked filling in case anyone can use was: mushroom, spinach, garlic, tofu, nutr yeast, lemon juice, Japanese soy sauce, sesame oil, salt and pepper. So quick and delicious.

    Made this as an appetizer. Delicious! It was my first foray into ‘tofu’. I have never cooked with it before, and have probably only eaten it once in my life. I was not impressed so wasn’t sure I would ever eat it again :). That has all changed. The tofu mixture in the ‘pocket’ was absolutely scrumptious. One of my guests thought it was cheese. The ultimate compliment! This recipe is a keeper. Honestly, at this point, every recipe I have made from this website has been a keeper. Thanks for the fabulous recipes and resources.

    How is puff pastry plant based? It has butter in it.

      Many brands don’t have butter! Just read labels to be sure šŸ™‚

    What exactly am I supposed to do with the tofu? Am I missing something or are there a few steps that are skipped? I know it says to “combine all other ingredients in a bowl and set aside.” I’m assuming this includes the tofu, but should I dice the it, crumble it, mash it like potatoes…

      I added all of the ingredients (minus the mushrooms, spinach and garlic) to a food processor. I also added subs deride tomatoes to my filling. Yummm!

        Oops! That’s suppose to say “sun-dried” tomatoes!
