  3. Heat up the frypan, adding a touch more oil if necessary. add the leek, garlic, carrot and the thyme cook for a couple of minutes then add the stock and the wine and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the lemon juice and seasoning to taste.
  4. Place into a pie dish, and cover with the puff pastry, glaze with the beaten egg. Place in a preheated oven 190c and cook for 15-20 minutes until the pastry has risen and golden brown.
