  1. Preheat the oven to gas 5, 190°C, fan 170°C.
  2. Melt the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the leek and fry for 5 mins, stirring occasionally until softened. Add the spinach and mint and cook for 2-3 mins until wilted, then stir through the chickpeas, lemon juice, feta and seasoning. Spoon into a small, ovenproof dish.
  3. Unroll the puff pastry and cut a rectangle the size of the ovenproof dish. Use the pastry to top the pie.
  4. Score a cross for a steam hole into the middle of the pie and brush with the egg to glaze. Bake for 30 mins until the pastry is golden and risen.
  5. Meanwhile, bring a pan of salted water to the boil and cook the peas for 5 mins. Serve the pie alongside the peas.

Leftovers: Cut the leftover puff pastry into rectangles, layer between baking parchment and freeze for individual portions of pastry to use at a later date.
