Ingredients

200 grams flour
1 eggs
90 grams butter
3 teaspoons poppy seeds
salt
20 milliliters cold water
olive oil
1 onions (large)
500 grams spinach
1 garlic cloves
60 milliliters cream
200 milliliters milk
3 eggs
salt (to taste)
ground black pepper (to taste)
nutmeg (to taste)
1 cucumber (peeled and grated, without seeds)
200 grams grating cheese (to taste)
thyme sprigs (Fresh, to taste)

Directions

1Pour the flour on a work surface, and make a well in the center. Add the egg, pieces of butter, poppy seeds, and a pinch of salt.
2Knead all the ingredients well, and slowly, gradually add the water, until obtaining a stiff and moldable dough.
3Shape the dough into a ball, cover entirely with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
4Heat a frying pan with a little olive oil, add the finely chopped onion, and cook until translucent. Add the spinach and chopped garlic, and saute for 4 to 5 minutes. Set aside.
5In a bowl, whisk the cream with the milk and eggs. Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Set aside.
6Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celsius.
7Roll out the dough in a circle about 3 millimeters thick.
8Line the pie pan with parchment paper, spread the dough in the pan. Cover the dough with parchment paper, and place beans or other grains on top of the dough to weigh it down. This will prevent the dough from inflating while baking.
9Bake the dough in preheated oven at 160 C for 30 minutes.
10Remove from oven, remove the weights, the parchment paper, and the dough from the mold.
11Bake for 2 to 3 more minutes, and remove from oven. Turn oven temperature up to 180 C.
12Place in the pie mold, the well-drained spinach, cucumber, cheese, cream mixture, and fresh thyme sprigs.
13Bake again, at 180 C for 25 minutes.
