  • 2 tbsps butter
  • 2 onions finely diced
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 400 g baby spinach washed cut into strips
  • 1 cup cream
  • Knorr Thick White Onion Soup
  • salt & Pepper to taste
  • 3 sheets puff pastry
  • 1 cup feta cheese crumbled
  • 1 egg
  • 1 For the Creamed Spinach: Melt the butter on a medium/low heat in a medium saucepan.
  • 2 Add the onion & crushed garlic and sauté until soft, 5-7 minutes.
  • 3 Cut the baby spinach into strips and stir through the onions, 1 cup at a time until just wilted.
  • 4 Drain any excess water from the wilted spinach mixture and discard.
  • 5 Mix ¼ cup of cream with the Knorr Thick White Onion Soup to form a paste. Add the rest of the cream, mix well and add to the spinach.
  • 6 Stir well & simmer until slightly reduced and thickened. Season to taste.
  • 7 Allow to cool. (Store any remaining mixture in the freezer.)
  • 8 For the Pie: Pre-heat the oven to 180 °C and grease a muffin tin.
  • 9 Roll out the puff pastry and cut out discs (large enough to be pressed into a muffin tin with a 1.5cm overhang).
  • 10 Line each of the greased cups of the muffin tin with the puff pastry discs. Set aside remaining pastry for the lids of the pies.
  • 11 Mix the feta cheese into the cooled creamed spinach mixture.
  • 12 Spoon this mixture into the cups.
  • 13 Cut out 12 smaller pastry circles from the remaining pastry, to form the lids.
  • 14 Pop a lid onto each of the pies. Pinch the edges together to seal.
  • 15 Use a sharp knife to make small incisions in the pastry lids.
  • 16 Beat the egg and brush over the top of each pie.
  • 17 Bake +/- 25 minutes until golden & crisp.
  • 18 Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes and ENJOY!!
