There is something about this mushroom-leek pie that inspires me to re-make it time and time again. It’s super delicious, savoury, comforting, great for sharing and yet still easy to make.
It doesn’t require a whole lot of ingredients and all of the ingredients are easily accessible; there are no fancy, hard-to-find ingredients in this recipe. This pie is great for gatherings and special occasions because you can easily pre-prepare the filling. On the day you can then cover the filling with a sheet of puff pastry and heat it up in the oven.
For this recipe, I like to use Swiss brown mushrooms. I find them more flavourful than the white button mushrooms. You can use either cannellini or butter beans, although personally I prefer using butter beans because they’re a bit larger in size.
If you’re able to use fresh herbs, I encourage you to use those. However, I have made this pie with both fresh and dried herbs, and the dried herb version is still very, very tasty.
If you like beans, then you might also like to have a look at these recipes:
