50g butter

1 tsp fresh thyme

1 Tbsp honey (Blueskin Bay Honey)

Salt & pepper

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.

Cut the leek into 1 cm rounds and rinse under cold water keeping the leeks in rounds if possible. Wash and finely chop the thyme

Wash and cut the apple into quarters and remove the pips, slice into thin slices

Take a sheet of puff pastry and cut the corners off to make a round, cut 3 slits in the middle so the steam can escape when cooking

Heat a pan on a moderate to high heat and add the butter. Place the leeks in the pan, season with salt and pepper and cook until they are starting to colour nicely and remove from the heat

Add the apple slices on top of the leeks, drizzle over the honey and sprinkle over the chopped thyme

Place the sheet of pastry over the leeks and tuck the pastry down the sides

Cook in the oven for approx. 20mins until the pastry is golden brown and cooked

Leave to cool for 5 minutes before inverting onto a serving plate

Sprinkle over the feta and a little extra thyme to garnish and serve
