Food on Friday: Feta and Spinach GF Pie

The resident chef had a clever idea today. He’s also been astute.

However it may scare you when you hear what he did.

Tonight’s dinner was planned as a lovely feta and spinach pie.

In the fridge lurking, was some feta but it had a secret.

Now it was vacuum packed and sealed in brine. He decided to use his initiative. According to the love food hate waste website the UK throws away seven million tonnes of food and drink every year.

So he opened it and smelled it. And then tasted a corner. It was fine. So in the pie it went.

Recipe
Gluten free pastry
A pack of feta cut into cubes
Three eggs
A handful of spinach
A clove of garlic, crushed

What he did:
Line a greased dish with grease proof paper then line with the pastry. Leave excess hanging over the edges.

Then beat the eggs, add the garlic and shred the spinach. Pour into the baking tin.

Sprinkle the cheese evenly over and fold in the pastry.

Bake in a hot over at 180 degrees for thirty five minutes until the pastry is brown and the eggs are cooked.

It was delicious with roasted pumpkin and leek.

    I have a friend who is a good hygienist and she always says trust your nose. It’s evolved to sense rotten food, and it’s actually an official test which they do as part of their assessment. Obviously, you have to have a good one – my brother lost his sense of smell after a fall so I wouldn’t trust his!

      Well twenty four hours later I’m feeling fine so it wasn’t a cunning plan on the part of the chef.

    The solution, once you pass a certain age, is obvious: Don’t put on your reading glasses, since sell-by dates are only visible once they’re on your head. Then and only then should you trust your nose.

    I love spinach and feta pie.. Had it almost every day when I live in Greece.

    As for food waste my butcher told me today that he’d recently watched a programme where a family of four spent a whopping £350 per week on food. And guess where a large part of that went?!

      I saw that programme! Worse still they bought all kinds of expensive things like pre cut carrots. They taste terrible.

        Ah yes, the pre-cut carrots…. I understand as well that these go off much more quickly than ordinary veg, which means they are even more likely to get chucked out.

        It was embarrassing. The most expensive cereal, pizza, yogurt…..

        I know someone who buys a huge order of food from Tescos – okay, it’s packaged and sometimes processed but it wouldn’t be generally a bad diet. Then they get take-always and a good part of what they bought from Tesco goes in the bin. This is because they would like to eat better and save money but then the temptation of kebabs and pizza becomes too much.
