  • 1 onion
  • 250 ml vegetable stock
  • 1 leek
  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 75 g small button mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp plain flour

  • 2 filo pastry sheets

  7. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove the bay leaves and pour into an ovenproof dish.
  8. Brush both sides of the filo pastry sheets with egg and layer on top of the filling, scrunching the top layer. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the filling is cooked through. 
  9. Serve with seasonal vegetables.
