We do believe that you can definitely make a great job with it even when you are not much good at cooking.

Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil PinwheelsCourse: AppetizersCuisine: AmericanDifficulty: Easy
0.53 cup sun-dried tomatoes (chopped)
8.4 ounces vegan cream cheese
0.26 cup frozen spinach (thawed and squeezed)
2.1 large cloves garlic (minced)
0.26 cup vegan parmesan cheese
1.05 pinch sea salt and black pepper
25.2 fresh basil leaves (divided)
2.1 large flour tortillas
- In a mixing bowl, gather cream cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, garlic, vegan parmesan cheese, salt; mix thoroughly to combine.
- Divide filling between two flour tortillas; spread into an even layer all the way to the edge. Top each with half of the fresh basil leaves (leaving one edge bare so the tortilla can stick to itself). Press basil down slightly to adhere.
- Tightly roll up tortillas from one end to another, starting from the end with basil all the way to the edge, working toward the end that’s slightly bare.
- Once rolled up, squeeze gently to compact everything and lay seam-side down for slicing.
- Cut tortillas into 1/2-inch slices. Between the two tortillas, you should have a total of 20-22 pinwheels (amount as original recipe is written // adjust if altering batch size).
- To serve, arrange them on a serving platter, or cover and chill the in the fridge for up to 24 hours. For the leftovers, store them in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
