Ingredients
  1. 200g bag spinach leaves
  2. 175g jar sundried tomatoes in oil
  3. 100g feta cheese, crumbled
  4. 2 eggs
  5. ½ 250g pack filo pastry
Instructions
  1. Place the spinach into a large pan. Pour over a couple of tbsp water, then cook until just wilted. Tip into a sieve, leave to cool a little, then squeeze out any excess water and roughly chop. Roughly chop the tomatoes and put into a bowl along with the spinach, feta and eggs. Mix well.
  2. Carefully unroll the filo pastry. Cover with some damp sheets of kitchen paper to stop it drying out. Take a sheet of pastry and brush liberally with some of the sundried tomato oil. Drape oil-side down in a 22cm loosebottomed cake tin so that some of the pastry hangs over the side. Brush oil on another piece of pastry and place in the tin, just a little further round. Keep placing the pastry pieces in the tin until you have roughly three layers, then spoon over the filling. Pull the sides into the middle, scrunch up and make sure the filling is covered. Brush with a little more oil.
  3. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Cook the pie for 30 mins until the pastry is crisp and golden brown. Remove from the cake tin, slice into wedges and serve

  3. little at a time, still whisking until the meringue is stiff and glossy.
  4. Add the cornflour and whisk again.
  5. Spoon on top of the filled pastry case and spread the meringue to
  6. completely cover the lemon filling. Then create a swirl on the top of
