I've not done any food posts for a while (partly due to my food photography not being the best, as proven above!) but I just wanted to share a tasty meal I made recently. You can't beat a good pie when it's cold outside!
Mushroom, spinach and cheese pie
a small bag of spinach
2 cloves garlic
goat's cheese (or another cheese of your choice)
half a punnet of chestnut mushrooms
herbs of your choice (thyme is good)
1 beaten egg (to brush over the pastry)
[N.B. Below is my recipe but it was loosely based on this one.]
Heat some oil in a pan and fry the crushed garlic and chopped onion. Chop your herbs and add them to the pan, along with the chopped mushrooms and fry until soft. Next roll out your pastry on a floured surface, into a large rectangle shape.
Wash the spinach in a colander and pour boiling water over until wilted. Next strain out the water and season with salt and pepper. Chop the spinach up and spread it over one half of your pastry. Next add a layer of seasoned mushrooms. Chop up your goat's cheese & mozzarella cheese into slices and distribute them over the mixture. Next brush egg around the edges and fold over the top of your pie. Press down the edges with a fork and pierce the top in several places with your fork. Glaze the pastry with the remaining egg.
Put in the oven to bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with a side salad. Enjoy!
