Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil Pinwheels

Sun-Dried Tomato & Basil Pinwheels
Ingredients

· 8oz. (227g) cream cheese
· ½ cup (50g) lightly packed sun-dried tomatoes (dry, not in oil), chopped (plus more for topping)
· ¼ cup (45 g) lightly packed frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
· 2 large cloves garlic, minced
· ¼ cup (20g) parmesan, plus more for serving
· Salt and black pepper, to taste
· 2 large flour tortillas
· 24 fresh basil leaves, divided

Method
Add cream cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, garlic, parmesan, salt and pepper to a mixing bowl and mix thoroughly. Divide filling between two flour tortillas and spread into an even layer all the way to the edge. Top each with 10-12 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. Use a serrated knife to gently cut tortillas into half-inch slices. Between the two tortillas, you should have a total of 20-22 pinwheels.
Arrange on a serving platter and serve immediately, or chill for up to 24 hours, covered in the fridge.
