Carrots, raw

1 medium, finely chopped

Oregano, Dried

2 teaspoon(s), level

Ground coriander

¾ teaspoon(s), level

Feta Cheese

75 g, crumbled

Dill, Fresh

3 tablespoon(s), finely chopped


1 zest(s) of 1

Egg, whole, raw

900 g, butterflied and flattened to about 1.5cm thickness

Low Fat Spread

2 tablespoon(s)

Bay leaf, dry

3 leaf/leaves


  1. Cook the rice, according to the pack instructions, until tender. Meanwhile, on a chopping board, finely chop the garlic, sprinkle with salt and crush into a paste. Set aside.
  2. In a large, wide pan, heat the oil over a medium heat. Add the spinach, carrot and 1 tsp water. Season and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, for 3-5 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Remove from the heat and stir in the garlic, 1 tsp oregano and coriander. Spread the spinach mixture on a large plate to cool. Meanwhile, drain the rice, spread it on another large plate, and allow to cool to room temperature.
  3. When ready, using your hands and a clean tea towel, squeeze any excess liquid from the spinach mixture and transfer to a cutting board. Coarsely chop and place into a large bowl along with the cooled rice, feta, 2 tbsp of the dill, the zest and the egg and combine well. Season well.
  4. Lay out the turkey breast flat on a board and season. Spread the spinach filling across it, leaving a good 1cm border. Taking one of the longer sides, roll up the turkey like a swiss roll, as tightly as possible. Secure with kitchen string.
  5. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas mark 6. In a small pan, combine the low-fat spread, bay leaves, remaining dill and oregano, and season with black pepper. Cook gently over a medium-low heat until the spread is melted. Remove from the heat.
  6. Place the roulade in a baking dish. Brush with the spread mixture and season well. Tuck the bay leaves under the string and roast in the middle of the oven for 40-45 minutes or until cooked through. Remove from the oven, transfer to a board and allow to rest for 15 minutes. Slice thinly, crosswise, to serve.
