Leek, mushroom & spinach galette

Recipe Ingredients

  • 320g sheet ready-rolled
  • shortcrust pastry
  • 25g butter
  • 3 leeks, trimmed and finely sliced
  • 100g spinach
  • 150g button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 100g full-fat cream cheese
  • 2 thyme sprigs, leaves picked
  • 1 medium egg, beaten

Recipe Directions

1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Put a large baking tray in oven to heat.

2. Unroll pastry on to a large sheet of baking paper. Roll out further to make a rough square. Chill while you prepare filling.

3. Melt half the butter in a large pot over a medium heat and fry leeks until softened (about 10 minutes). Add spinach and stir until almost wilted. Season to taste and empty on to a plate to cool.

4. Return pot to a high heat with remaining butter; fry mushrooms until golden. Add garlic and fry for 1 minute more. Set aside to cool.

5. Mix cream cheese with thyme and seasoning. Remove pastry from fridge and spread cream cheese into a rough 22cm circle in centre. Spoon over leeks and spinach; top with mushrooms.

6. Trim corners of pastry so border width around filling is roughly even. Fold pastry edges over in a loose, rustic style. Brush border with beaten egg. Carefully transfer (still on baking paper) to the preheated baking tray in oven. Cook for about 30 minutes until crisp and golden. Serve.
