Add the lemon zest, spinach, basil, parsley, nutmeg, tofu, cooked butternut squash, feta cheese, eggs and season. Blitz all of the filling ingredients until roughly smooth. 4. Lay a sheet of filo on a clean bench and brush top with extra virgin avocado oil. Top with another sheet of pastry and repeat this process until you have at least 6 layers. 5. Spoon filling along the edge of the width of pastry. Roll up like a sausage roll. Brush with egg wash. 6. Fold the roll into a spiral and place in the middle of tray.
