Serves 4

Ingredients

Pastry
2 cups gluten free flour
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 cup cold water
Pinch of salt

Filling
4 cups spinach (washed and dried)
1 cup vegan ‘feta’ or ‘ricotta’ cheese
1 cup chestnut mushrooms, washed & sliced
1/2 tsp Italian herbs
1/2 tsp white truffle oil
1/2 tsp coconut oil

Method

  1. Pre-heat oven to 170C
  2. In a bowl add the gluten free flour, salt and coconut oil and start to rub together until it comes together into a ‘breadcrumb’ texture.  Slowly add the cold water, tablespoon by tablespoon until the mixture comes together into a bowl.  You may find that it doesn’t completely come together, that is fine.  However when you press the ‘dough’ into your pie dish, it will come together.  I use a 9″ cake tin.  Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
  3. In a frying pan, add the 1/2 tsp coconut oil and start to sauté the mushrooms in truffle oil, add the spinach until wilted then add cheese & herbs.
  4. Put the filling on to the pastry base and bake for another 20-30 minutes.
  5. Serve the pie with a delicious fresh salad and a simply lemon & olive oil dressing.
