Method:

Grease a 22cm spring form cake tin with cooking oil and line
with baking paper. 

1. Base Blitz the crackers in a blender or crush them in a
mixing bowl with the end of a rolling pin. Mix in the butter, then press the
mixture into the base of the cake tin using the back of a spoon. Leave to
chill.

2. Mix the gelatin into the stock. Microwave for 45 seconds
to 1 minute (don’t boil) to dissolve the gelatin, or put the cup in hot water
and stir until the gelatin is dissolved. Leave to cool for 5 minutes.

3. Filling: Scoop
the avocado flesh into a blender. Add the spinach, feta, garlic, lemon juice,
cream cheese, crème fraiche and stock mixture. Blitz until smooth,
intermittently pushing the mixture down with a long spatula. Season with salt
and pepper and pour over the biscuit base. Chill for at least 4 hours or
overnight.

4. To serve: Remove
from the cake tin (run a thin knife blade around the edge, if necessary), carefully
transferring it onto a serving platter. Garnish with a few micro herbs.
