Roasted Garlic and Spinach Spirals


  • 1 whole head garlic
  • 1 (15-ounce) can white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups spinach leaves, finely shredded
  • 7 (7-inch) whole-grain tortillas


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Trim top off garlic; discard. Moisten head of garlic with water; wrap in foil. Bake 45 minutes or until garlic is softened; cool completely. 
  2. Squeeze garlic into food processor or blender; discard skins. Add beans, oregano and black pepper. Process until smooth. Stir in the spinach.
  3. Spread mixture evenly onto tortillas; roll-up jelly-roll style. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
  4. To serve, cut into thirds or desired size.

Note: You can use minced garlic instead for quicker prep.
