  1. Put the spinach in a colander over the sink and pour over enough boiling water to wilt the leaves. Leave to cool slightly, then squeeze out the excess water.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan. Add the garlic, spinach, nutmeg and mustard and cook for 2 mins until heated through. Remove from the heat, allow to cool slightly, then stir through the lemon juice.
  3. Unroll the pastry sheet and spread evenly with the onion chutney. Top with the spinach mixture. Starting with one long edge, roll up the pastry until it reaches the centre, brush along the edge with the soya milk, then roll the other long edge into the centre so both sides meet. Press gently to seal, then brush the seam with a little more milk. Chill for 15 mins.
  4. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking parchment. Use a small serrated knife to cut the roll into 16 slices (around 2.5cm wide). Place on the trays. Brush with soya milk and bake for 15-20 mins until golden and crisp.
