  1. Heat 1 tbsp of the rapeseed oil in a large, heavy-based pan and cook the onion until softened. Stir in the garlic and ginger, then cook for another 30 seconds. Add the spices and cook for a further minute, whilst stirring.
  2. Tip the sweet potatoes and chickpeas into the pan and stir, cook for a couple of minutes. Stir in the stock, tomatoes, coconut milk. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes until the sweet potato is partly boiled.
  3. Stir the frozen spinach into the sweet potato mixture and cook for 10 minutes or until the spinach is cooked through. If there is still excess liquid, simmer for a little longer. Remove from the heat and leave to cool completely.
  4. Heat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/ gas 4. Brush the base and sides of a 1.5 litre ovenproof frying pan with rapeseed oil (or you can use a 23cm loose-bottomed cake tin).
  5. Brush 4-6 of the filo sheets with rapeseed oil, then lay them in the pan or tin so they cover it evenly and hang over the side. Spoon in the cooled sweet potato mix and spread. Fold over the overhanging filo to cover the filling. Scrunch up the remaining filo sheets and arrange them on top to cover the top of the pie and brush with a little oil. Bake for 35-40 minutes until the filo is crisp and golden.
  6. Carefully slide out the pie from the pan (or remove from the tin) onto a board. Serve with your sides of choice.
