Today's recipe owes something to the delicious Greek spinach-and-feta pies known as 'spanakopita' but we've given it a British twist. Instead of spinach we're using leek and kale, and a hotpot-style potato topping has replaced the filo pastry. It's an Anglo-Hellenic hybrid! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Prep the Veggies
Prep the Veggies

Preheat your oven to 220°C and put a large saucepan of water with a good pinch of salt on to boil for the potato. Peel the potato and chop into 1cm thick slices. Trim the root and the dark green leafy part from the leek. Halve lengthways then thinly slice widthways. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Pick the thyme leaves from their stalks (discard the stalks)

Cook the Potato
Cook the Potato

Add the potato to your pan of boiling water. Cook for 10 mins. TIP: The potato is cooked when you can easily slip a knife through. Be careful - you don't want the potato slices to break up too much! Once cooked, gently drain your potato slices in a colander.

Fry the Veggies

Put a splash of oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Throw in the leek. Cook until soft, 5 mins. Add the mushrooms and thyme along with a pinch of salt and a grind of black pepper. Stir together and cook for another 7 mins.

Add the Cream
Add the Cream

Once the mushrooms have softened pour in the water (amount specified in the ingredient list). Add the vegetable stock pot, bring to the boil and stir to dissolve. Add the double cream. Turn the heat to low and simmer for 3-5 mins. Add the kale and stir to wilt the leaves. Continue to simmer gently until the liquid has reduced by a third, another 5 mins. Take the pan off the heat.

Meanwhile, mix the panko breadcrumbs with the olive oil (amount specified in the ingredient list) in a mixing bowl. Crumble in the feta cheese and stir well.

Bake the Pie
Bake the Pie

Once cooked, pour the veggie mixture into an ovenproof dish. Lay your potato slices on top, then sprinkle over the feta crumb and season with black pepper. Pop on the top shelf of your oven and bake until the top is browned, 10 mins. Once your pie is ready, remove it from the oven and serve in bowls. Enjoy!


Now you have dished up your meal, take a moment to reflect and feel proud of what you have made. Make sure you take to time to congratulate yourself before the first bite. Enjoy!
