(Serves 4)

Spray pastry with a little rice bran oil. Layer remaining sheets at different angles, spraying with a little oil. Cover with tea towel (to prevent pastry from drying out).

Step 4. Fry onion until soft. Set aside to cool.

Step 5. Place eggs, milk and Maggi soup mix in a jug and beat until well combined.

Step 6. Place and spread out spinach, onion and crumbled feta over pastry.

Step 8. Place sliced tomatoes on top if using.

Step 9. Turn edges of pastry over and spray top of flan with a little oil.
