This is another recipe I came up with just to honor our new President and his respect for Abraham Lincoln.
And plus, I needed a way to use up the filling leftovers from the rice balls I made! But, mostly, for Barack Obama.
1 box phillo dough
about 4 plum tomatoes, diced
grated cheese, to taste
broccoli ~ cauliflower mixture, for filling
canola oil, for brushing
First, mix together the tomatoes, grated cheese, and broccoli mixture together. (for the broccoli-cauliflower, I had just sauteed them together with a couple cloves of garlic until they were cooked and then pureed them together )
Put about 4 – 6 sheets of phillo dough together by brushing each separate sheet with a little canola oil. Cut the sheets into about 4 inch squares. Center about 1/2 – 1 teaspoon filling on each square. Fold up a little of one side, fold in 2 edges and then the last side gets folded over.
Bake in oven at 350 degrees for about 10 – 15 minutes until browned.
Pile them up like Lincoln Logs!!
