200g spinach, blanched drained and chopped
1 egg yolk

¼ teaspoon grated nutmeg
Salt and pepper
2 litres homogenised milk

2. Dilute the citric acid in the water.
3. Remove the milk from the Steam Oven and immediately add the acidulated water into the milk and mix through.
4. Cover with a clean tea towel and set aside for 30 minutes, undisturbed.
5. Line a small colander or sieve with muslin and sit over a bowl allowing space for liquid to collect in the bottom.

sheets leaving a 3cm gap along the top of each sheet.
2. Using the muslin as a guide, roll up like a roulade, enclosing the filling as you go. Brush the exposed edge with water and roll over the seal. Secure the ends tightly with string to form a log.
3. Place the rotolo into a solid steam tray with a small amount of water at the bottom. Steam at 100°C for 40 minutes, turning halfway through the cooking.
