To make the pastry… Sieve the flour and salt into a bowl; add the butter and rub the mixture together using your finger-tips until a breadcrumb like texture. Add the milk a little at a time and bring the ingredients together into a dough. Cover and allow to rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Lightly flour a dry work surface and roll out the pastry to a circle a little larger than the top of the tin or dish and approximately 5mm thick. Grease the dish/tin well with butter or oil spray and line the tin/dish with the pastry, taking care not to have any holes or the mixture could leak. Cover and rest for a further 30 minutes in the fridge.
Preheat oven to 190°C.
Line the pastry case with greaseproof paper, add baking beans and bake blind for 15 minutes, before removing the greaseproof paper and baking beans.
Reduce oven temperature to 160°C.
Beat together the cream, eggs, herbs and seasoning. Scatter 1/2 of the grated cheese in the blind-baked base, top with the LeaderBrand Baby Spinach and beans then pour over the liquid mixture. If required gently give the mixture a delicate stir to ensure the filling is evenly dispersed but be careful not to damage the pastry case.
Sprinkle over the remaining cheese. Place into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until set and lightly golden.
Creamy, smooth, and very nutritious! Toss through another salad, add a handful to a smoothie or cook with many other dishes. Good source of Folate and source of Vitamin A

Add your own twist of seasonal veg or herb flavourings… pretty sure the King won’t mind.
