  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 spring greens shredded
  • 2 courgettes grated
  • 3 garlic cloves crushed or grated
  • 400 g butter beans drained
  • 200 g spinach defrosted and drained thoroughly
  • 2 free-range eggs beaten
  • 150 g feta crumbled
  • 1 lemon finely grated zest only
  • 1 tsp oregano dried
  • 5 tsp dried mint
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 pastry
  • 30 g butter melted
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp black pepper


  • Heat a splash of oil in a large, non-stick frying pan and add the spring greens and a pinch of salt
  • Fry for 4-5 minutes, until softened and slightly caramelised
  • Tip onto a plate lined with a couple of sheets of kitchen paper and leave to cool
  • Add a little more oil to the pan, then fry the courgettes and garlic for 2–3 minutes, until softened
  • Add to the plate with the spring greens and cover with more kitchen paper
  • Put a second plate on top and press down to squeeze out as much excess moisture as possible
  • Tip into a large bowl and add the butter beans, spinach, eggs, feta, lemon zest, herbs and nutmeg, if using
  • Give everything a good stir, breaking up the butter beans as you mix
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6
  • Grease the inside of a non-stick, oven-proof frying pan with olive oil and lay a sheet of filo on top
  • Drizzle with oil, then top with a second sheet of filo, laid at a right angle to the first
  • Continue layering the filo in alternate directions, drizzling with oil between each sheet, until you’ve used up all the pastry
  • Spoon the filling into the middle of the pastry, then gather the edges in the centre and press together to seal, using oil to help
  • Brush all over with the melted butter, making sure the surface is completely covered and allowing any excess butter to run down the edges
  • Sprinkle over the sesame seeds
  • Set the pan over a medium-high heat and cook for 2–3 minutes until the underside of the pastry starts to turn golden-brown
  • Place the pan into the oven and bake for 30 minutes until golden and crisp
  • Leave the pie to cool slightly, then slide onto a board and slice into wedges to serve
