175 g gluten-free flour

pinch of salt

85 g chilled butter, coarsely grated

50 g mature Cheddar cheese, grated

1 tsp (5  ml) wholegrain mustard


1 Tbsp (15 ml) butter

1 small onion, chopped

150 g cooked lentils (equivalent of ½ tin of lentils)

¼ cup (60 ml) sautéed or steamed spinach

100 g feta cheese

salt and freshly ground black pepper

beaten egg for brushing


Set aside four pie moulds.

Mix the flour, salt and butter in a bowl, then stir in the cheese. Blend 2 Tbsp (30 ml) cold water with the mustard and stir in. Form into a dough. Wrap and chill for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 180 °C.

Halve the pastry. Roll out one piece of pastry between two pieces of plastic wrap until just larger than the pie moulds. Remove the top piece of plastic and lift the pastry onto a rolling pin with the plastic wrap underneath. Lay pastry-side down into the mould. Peel away the plastic, then trim around the rim and push the dough into the corners.


Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the onion and fry until soft. Add the cooked lentils, spinach and feta and season with salt and pepper. Fill the pies with the vegetable-feta mix. Roll out the second half of the pastry as before and cover the pies. Brush the pies with a simple egg wash and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve with a side salad and pickled onions.
