  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Wilt spinach in a colander by pouring a kettleful of hot water over it.
  2. Heat half the oil in a large non-stick pan and fry mushrooms on a high heat until golden. Add garlic and cook for 1 min, then tip in stock, mustard, nutmeg and potatoes. Bubble for a few mins until reduced. Season, then remove from the heat; add crème fraîche and spinach. Pour into a pie dish and allow to cool for a few mins.
  3. Brush filo with remaining oil, quarter sheets then loosely scrunch up and lay on top of pie filling. Bake for 20-25 mins until golden. Serve with vegetables.

Both me and my boyfriend really enjoyed this. I added some cooked chicken to the mixture as were not veggies. I was really lovely. Well worth trying.

Really quite enjoyable and tastes very good yet healthy! I skipped the green beans and put the just steamed broccoli inside the pie rather than serving it with it, which added a bit more crunch! Instead of creme fraiche I used low fat greek yoghurt. A good vegetarian home dinner but not great enough for a dinner party

Easy to cook and really tasty. The sort of meal that even non-vegetarians can enjoy & will suit a wide range of occasions. The first time I made it I used watercress, which I'd picked up by mistake. It still worked well.

Just tried this recipe, and it was absolutely stunning. Even my meat loving partner found it amazing. I added a little less spinach and threw in half the amount of potatoes with half sweet potatoe. I also used a puff pastry lid. My family have requested it become a weekly meal.
Thumbs up ^.^

this really is a lovely dish I made it twice, once with broccoli for my grandchildren they enjoyed it
And the next time with spinach I prefer it with the broccoli.
