500g Quality Mark beef mince
2 handfuls baby spinach
1 tsp ground allspice
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 cup beef stock
3 tbsp pine nuts
100g cheddar cheese
cut into small cubes
3 sheets puff pastry
lightly beaten with a little milk
To Make Filling
Preheat oven to 190°C conventional.
Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat.
Place spinach in the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, for 1-2 minutes until the spinach has wilted.
Drain well and roughly chop.
Add a dash of oil to the frying pan with the onion and cook over a low heat for about 5 minutes or until the onion is soft but not coloured.
Increase the heat and add the beef mince, stirring to break up the mince and prevent the onion from burning.
Cook until the mince begins to brown, about 10 minutes.
Stir in the spices and cook for 1 minute, then add the tomato paste and cook for a further minute.
Stir in the beef stock, season and cook until the stock has been absorbed. Set aside.
Once cool, stir through the chopped spinach, toasted pine nuts and cheese.
