Spinach & Rice Pie

Serves 6-8 Prep Time 10 minutes   Cook Time 45 minutes  
by Tenina Holder

This pie is great picnic food cold, or fantastic lunch fare served with a side salad. You don’t have to make your own puff pastry, but if you do, you will absolutely notice the difference and it will elevate this pie from every day to dinner party fare. So get rolling, you’ll want to impress with this one!

I have been making this for literally years, way before Thermomix was in my life. I used to use silver beet, back in the day. I think it would also be awesome with kale...if you are hip enough to cook with kale! Salad on the side? Optional, just delicious hot or cold. You're welcome.
