1.2 kg (2lbs 10oz) potatoes

240g (8 1/2 oz) leeks

8 garlic cloves

240g (8 1/2 oz) cheese

2 tbsp chopped basil

225g (8 oz) shortcrust pastry

Ground black pepper to taste


Peel and chop the potatoes into small chunks, then boil until soft and leave to cool, and the same for the leeks.

Crush the garlic and grate the cheese into a large mixing bowl.  Add the basil, pepper, potatoes and leeks and mix thoroughly.

Roll out the pastry to fill an 8 inch flat tin, then add the mixture, spreading it evenly to fill the tin.

Cook the pie in the oven at Gas Mark 6 / 200 C for 45 minutes, until the mixture is golden brown and the pastry is cooked.

Serve warm with leaf salad and coleslaw.
