Easy Mushroom 'Pixie Pie'
2 sheets ready-rolled puff pastry
4 portobello mushrooms
150g soft cheese with garlic & herbs (I used Boursin)
1 egg, beaten with a splash of water and a pinch of salt
Cut the sheets of puff pastry in half widthways, and place a mushroom on each piece. Spread the soft cheese over the mushroom 'gills', then brush the edges of the pastry with the egg wash and fold the corners into the centre to cover the filling. Place on a baking sheet, then brush with more egg wash. Cook at 180ºc for 40 minutes or so, until crisp and golden.
At Christopher's insistent request, I also served some small baked potatoes (though I personally feel that potatoes and pastry is de trop. This garlic-and-lemon spinach is all I wanted...
So easy, and so fast. I adore spinach any old how, but this is my absolute favourite way to cook it!
1 tbsp olive oil
5 cloves garlic, or to taste, chopped
200g leaf spinach, rinsed and just shaken dry
juice of 1/2 a lemon
