In a large bowl mix the Feta, herbs, salt and pepper, cooked onions then carefully stir in the tofu ix and the remaining spinach.

Place a sheet of filo pastry flat on a clean work surface and spoon a 2cm wide line of filling along the edge of the sheet. Carefully roll the sheet to form a tube and then roll the tube to form a spiral. Brush with melted butter or spray with Low Cal Fry Lite. Place on a greased baking tray. Repeat until all of the filling has been used.

Bake in the centre of the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
