1 tsp onion powder
¼ cup Cruelty Free Pantry Savoury Yeast Flakes

½ cup soy milk

Method

  1. Thaw pastry at room temperature for 2 hrs. Preheat oven to 180C.

  5. Melt Nuttelex and mix with soy milk in a separate bowl.
  6. Brush a 2L baking dish with Nuttelex then lay a sheet of pastry and lightly brush with the margarine and milk mix. Repeat with 5 more sheets. Spread spinach mixture over the top.
  7. Cover with remaining pastry, brushing each sheet with margarine and milk. Tuck edges into the sides of the dish. Brush the top with margarine and milk and score in diamond patterns.
