3. Line a pie dish approximately 24cm in diameter with the pastry, chopping off any pastry that comes above the dish and using them to cover the sides of the dish

AND A WORD FROM THE DIETITIAN...

Take note when adding haloumi to dishes- there is no need to add any salt. Standard haloumi has approximately 1300mg of sodium per 100g and reduced salt haloumi has around 1000mg. A food is considered low salt if it has less than 120mg/100g, so it is definitely not one of those!
