Step by Step Method
Lightly flour the work surface and roll out the pastry to a circle a little larger than the top of the springform pan.
Carefully lift the pastry into the tin and gently press into the corners, taking care not to have any holes or the mixture could leak.
Cover and rest for a further 30 mins in the fridge.
Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
Line the pastry case with parchment paper; to do this cut a disc of paper larger than the tin, scrunch it into a ball (this makes it more pliable), then unwrap and place it in the pastry case.
It should come above the sides.
Fill with baking beans or uncooked rice and bake blind for 20 minutes until nicely golden and dry. Carefully remove the paper and baking beans, and return to the oven for 5 mins to dry the base.
Reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees F
Beat the milk, cream, eggs and herbs with seasoning to taste. (Some folks liked a dash of nutmeg)
Scatter half of the grated cheese on the blind-baked base, top with the chopped squeezed out spinach and beans, then pour over the liquid mixture.
If required, gently give the mixture a delicate stir to ensure the filling is evenly dispersed, but be careful not to damage the pastry case.
Sprinkle over the remaining cheese.
Place into the oven and bake for 35 minutes until set and very lightly golden.
Some folks had to bake longer.
No special items needed.
