The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
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.
Gluten free pastry
A pack of feta cut into cubes
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.
