Easy Spinach Pie

November 26, 2010 § Leave a comment

Here’s a lovely light dish suitable for lunch or dinner (or breakfast!). Tastes great reheated the next day too, or served cold. We have it with a side salad.

Ingredients

  • 250g baby spinach
  • 3 shallots, diced finely
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 500g full fat ricotta cheese
  • 2 sheets of puff pastry
  • large bunch of fresh parsley
  • either dried basil leaves or fresh – good handful
  • 1 egg

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
  2. Firstly, cook your spinach. Steam 250g spinach leaves either in the microwave or on the stove. Dice finely and set aside.
  3. In a bowl, combine the ricotta, basil and parsley, spinach, shallots and lemon juice. Add the egg and give it a good stir.
  4. Lay the pastry into a pie dish and then spoon the ricotta mixture into the dish, using a fork to flatten it out. Place it into the oven and cook for 35 minutes or until the pastry is golden and crispy.

Serves 6.
