Ricotta and silverbeet pie

Yes I do like cooking pies and I do like silverbeet and cheese. And I like being able to come home and just cook something from ingredients I have lying around. So this is another pie that I am making in puff pastry - even though it could be made in phyllo which I also have on hand.


Half bunch silverbeet (including stalks)
2 spring onions
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp Sambal oelek
1 tsp crushed ginger
375 gr ricotta
2 sheets frozen puff pastry


Place a steamer on the stove and bring water to the boil
Remove pastry from freezer to thaw
Turn on oven to preheat to 180c
Meanwhile roughly chop half a bunch of silverbeet including white stalks
Add to steamer
Chop spring onions and add to steamer
Crush garlic and ginger and add to steamer
Add Sambal oelek
Steam until vegetables tender
Place one sheet of pastry in the bottom of a square oven dish
Spoon the vegetables onto the pastry
Spoon the ricotta over the vegetables 
Place the second sheet of pastry over the vegetables and cheese
Fold the two sheets of pastry together and press to seal
Sprinkle poppyseed on top
Cook in 180c oven for 45 minutes
