I ate this once last summer at Jenny’s and it was really quite nice.
So earlier today evening, when I happened to be in her kitchen as she made it for guests that she will have at lunch tomorrow, I noted down the quantities of the ingredients as she cooked.
It looked quite simple to put together, so I am going to try and make it some time soon.
2 rolls of store-bought pie crust
a kilo of frozen,very very finely chopped spinach
3-4 tablespoons of creme fraiche
a 210 gm bag of Gruyere cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1 large onion, chopped fine
1 egg, lightly whisked
De-frost the spinach and squeeze out all the water.
In a pan, heat a little oil and fry the onion for a while.
In a mixing bowl, combine the spinach, the onion, the seasoning, the cheese and the creme fraiche.
Place one of the pie crusts at the bottom of a pie dish. Fill with the spinach mixture and spread it evenly. Cover with the second pie crust.
Brush the top with the egg and bake at 175degreesC till done.
