Broccoli and Cheese Pie

Not 100% sure where this comes from but it is an amazing, vegetarian-friendly dish and pretty easy and forgiving.

Photo  Serves 6


  • 2 good sized leeks
  • 150ml of soured cream
  • packet of blue cheese (I like dolcelatta but you can substitute, even for mozzarella if you don't like blue cheese at all)
  • broccoli (one whole one should do)
  • packet of puff pastry for the lid of the pie or make it yourself

Softly fry the chopped up leeks in oil and/or butter, season with salt and pepper. When soft add the cream and cook gently for a few more minutes. Place the cooked leeks in a baking tray so the bottom is covered.

Now add broccoli florets either raw or boil for a couple of minutes maximum before placing them on top of the leeks. In between the florets, put chunks of cheese. Cover the whole dish with the rolled out puff pastry and place in a pre-heated oven at 200c (180 if fan assisted) 0r Gas Mark 6 for 20 minutes until golden brown.

That's it. Easy, impressive and delicious.
