these little crunchy-cheesy-creamy-vegan spinach bites are so delicious! i serve them as appetizers and they tend not to last very long. they're quick to throw together and so creamy no one will believe they're vegan. just be careful, they're addictive!

vegan spinach bites

vegan spinach bites - adapted from cindy rader's spinach bites.


- 1 package phyllo dough shells
- 1/2 medium onion, diced
- 1 tbs coconut oil (or other oil)
- 3 cups fresh greens (like baby spinach, arugula or kale)
- 1/2 c. tofutti better than cream cheese
- 4 slices of tofutti better than mozzarella cheese, diced
- salt and pepper to taste


1) preheat oven to 375°F. place phyllo shells on an cookie sheet (tip: line with parchment paper for easy clean up!).

2) add the oil and onion to a frying pan and place over medium heat. sauté until the onions are slightly browned, about 5-7 minutes. add the greens and cook until wilted. add salt and pepper to taste.

3) in a small mixing bowl, stir together the onion and greens mixture, cream cheese and mozzarella until well combined. scoop the mixture out and fill each phyllo cup.

4) bake for 15-18 minutes, until slightly browned on top. serve and enjoy!


  • They look so good! Thanks for sharing the recipe! How many spinach bites does this recipe make? I will have to try this out, though I’d probably make the non-vegan version. I can imagine making this ahead and just grab some bites for breakfast. Oh yeah.

  • These look yummy – I doubt my hubs would eat them though!
