2. Add the water quickly, mixing lightly to form a dough. Put in a polythene bag and rest the pastry in a cool place for about 30 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, make the filling. Melt the margarine, add the onions, garlic and spinach, cover and cook over a low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent the mixture sticking. Stir in the yeast extract.
4. Stir in the flour, cook for 2 minutes and remove from the heat.
5. Beat the eggs well and add to the pan with 100 g/4 oz of the cheese, salt and pepper.
6. Roll out the pastry between two sheets of greaseproof paper. Use to line a 26-cm/10-inch fluted flan dish.
7. Add the filling and place on the centre shelf in a moderately hot oven (190°C, 375°F, Gas Mark 5) and cook for 25 minutes.
8. Sprinkle on remaining cheese in lines and return to the oven for a further 5-7 minutes to just melt the cheese.
9. Serve with a colourful salad and French bread.
