Fancy Layered Filo Pie

This blog has moved! See this post on the relocated blog here: http://spiceboxofearth.co.uk/2015/10/06/fancy-layered-filo-pie/

I've been on a bit of a Jus Rol kick lately. God BLESS them for those cinnamon rolls. Despite my recent ailments (investigation continuing) my quality of life has been improved undoubtedly by those warm, sticky, doughy coils of delight. I've actually been taking some medication lately to ~clear me out~ and try to reduce discomfort, etc., pending the sigmoidoscopy (which obviously I am super looking forward to. NOT.) and so in the last few days my appetite has been growing.

I decided to grab some Jus Rol filo pastry having no idea whatsoever what I'd do with it. Usually I make little parcels of yum at Christmas. I did a bit of googling and spotted a tasty filo pie. So I stole that idea, and created something wonderful. It's a sort of weird savoury quiche-baklava (and baklava is definitely next on my list).

The 'sauce' is the same as my deep dish chickpea omelette recipe. This makes a happy creamy/quichey filling. I also added some fresh garlic to the mix, and it would be super with some fresh herbs as well.

I covered the bottom of a rectangular over dish with a little olive oil, and put down my first two layers of pastry. I poured some of the omelette mixture in, then spread out a layer of thinly sliced courgette.

I put down my next layer of pastry, poured over some more of the omelette mixture and then spread out a layer of thinly sliced leek and mushroom.

I put down my last (top) layer of pastry and poured the last of the omelette mixture over the top.

I baked this at ~180 degrees for around 45 minutes until it was good and browned on the top and the filling was 'set'.

I can confirm that this is super duper with a salad, and just as delicious the next day!

In crafty news, how do you like my new bathroom door accessory, pooping unicorn? I think he is just wonderful <3
