Ingredients

  • 600g floury potatoes, peeled and cut into large dice
  • 2 leeks, sliced
  • butter, for frying
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 200g spinach, chopped
  • 5 tbsp soft cheese
  • 150g mature cheddar, grated

PASTRY

  • 100g plain flour
  • 100g wholemeal flour
  • ¼ tsp smoked paprika
  • 100g butter, cubed and chilled
  • 1 egg, beaten

Method

  • STEP 1
    To make the pastry, put the flours, paprika, butter and 1/2 tsp salt in a food processor, and whizz until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the egg and whizz until it forms a dough (add a splash of cold water to make it come together). Roll out and use to line a 20cm metal, loose-bottomed tin (a sponge tin is ideal). Chill.
  • STEP 2
    Cook the potatoes in a pan of boiling salted water until just tender, then drain really well.
  • STEP 3
    Cook the leeks with a knob of butter in a frying pan until soft, then add the garlic and cook for another minute. Stir in the spinach and cook until completely wilted, then stir in the soft cheese.
  • STEP 4
    Heat the oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Tip the leeks, spinach and potatoes into a large bowl. Add 3⁄4 of the cheddar and lots of seasoning. Toss everything together, then tip into the chilled pastry case. Sprinkle over the rest of the cheese and bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until golden. Cool for 10 minutes in the tin, then carefully turn out and serve.
