Let sit for approx. 20 mins. Thinly slice leeks. Chop portobello mushrooms. Drain and finely chop the shiitake mushrooms. Peel and mince garlic.\nAdd approx. one-third of the butter to a frying pan and fry portobello mushrooms over medium heat. Once they’re starting to brown, add shiitake mushrooms, leek, and garlic. Fry until the leek is translucent, approx. 8 min. Add balsamic vinegar, let reduce, and season with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat, add lemon juice, and set aside to cool.\nMix cooled mushroom mixture with frozen, defrosted, and drained spinach, thyme leaves, and creme fraiche in a bowl. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Scoop half of the mixture into a blender. Blend until smooth, adding some water to loosen it up if needed, then add it back to the bowl and mix well to combine. Let cool completely.\n\n Preheat the oven to 180°\/360°F. Place a sheet of puff pastry onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place the filling in the center of the puff pastry, leaving approx. 2 - 3 cm \/ 1-in. free around all sides. Place the remaining sheet of puff pastry over the mixture and close the sides well with your fingers or a fork. Whisk egg in a small bowl and brush over the puff pastry. Transfer to a preheated oven and bake until golden brown, approx. 30 mins. Slice and enjoy!\n\n \nCourtesy of Zwilling.
