How to prepare: Savory puff pie with rice, spinach and feta
To make the tasty puff pie with rice, spinach and feta, boil the rice in salted boiling water for the time specified on the package. Drain it and stop cooking under running cold water. Collect the spinach in a pot with a little water, cover it and let it dry over medium heat until it is tender enough. Drain and cool them in water and ice. Squeeze them well to prevent them from releasing too much water.
Roughly chop them in a blender with the chopped leek, the crumbled feta, the grated Parmesan, the eggs previously beaten in a separate hollow dish, the mint washed and chopped by hand, salt and pepper. Add the mixture to the rice and mix everything together.
Place the puff pastry in a 24 cm diameter mold covered with baking paper. Prick the bottom with the tines of a fork and pour the rice filling inside. Level with the back of a spoon and fold the remaining dough on itself inwards to create a slightly jagged edge. Sprinkle the surface with the slivered almonds. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 ° for about 45-50 minutes or in any case until the puff pastry is golden and the filling is cooked through. Remove from the oven and cool the flavorful puff pastry with rice, spinach and feta before serving.
