My kids love this. Luckily they love spinach too. Sometimes we have it accompanying a piece of fish, like Salmon, or Tuna, or otherwise we’ll simply have it as a main meal. Sometimes nice with fresh sliced tomatoes on the side.
On Recipes site you can find more delicious home made recipes for the kids.
Good for vegetarians
Great as a meal on it’s own or to accompany a meat dish
Ingredients for the Filling:
- 200g Spinach
- 100g Feta Cheese
- 2 large Onions
- 6 Sundried Tomatoes
- 1 medium Sweet Potato
For the Pastry:
- 100g Butter
- 25 g Olive Oil
- 125g Plain Flour
- 125g Wholemeal Flour
- 150ml Hot water
- 1tsp Sea Salt
- 1 egg for brushing
First Make the Pastry by melting the Butter in the hot water and then adding this to the flour and salt until it comes to a smooth dough. Cover with cling film and sit in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
While the pastry is chilling, prepare the filling.
Wilt the spinach in a little olive oil.
Dice and cook the Sweet Potato in salted boiling water for about 5 minutes.
Slice the onions and gently fry until soft and golden. Adding a pinch of sugar will help them caramelise.
Slice the Sundried Tomatoes and crumble the cheese.
Once the dough has firmed up, divide it into 2 and roll out on a floured surface with a floured rolling pin into a rough circle.
Place onto a greaseproof lined and slightly flour dusted baking sheet.
Now arrange the filling onto it.
First the spinach then the sweet potato. Then the feta and sundried tomatoes and finish with the caramelised onions.
Roll out the other half the same way, brush the edges of the first one and place it on top.
Crimp the edges together as rough or skilful as you can. Cut a few decorative slits into the top and put it in a preheated oven about 180 degrees.
Bake for about 35 – 40 minutes
Rest the pie for 15 minutes then cut into 4
