Creamy Leek, Mushroom, and Pea Pies

I was looking for something light to make today and came across this recipe from Australian Women's Weekly. It's light, healthy, and vegetarian. Only 200 calories per serving which is perfect for dinner!

I've made slight modifications to the recipe.

2 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic
1 large leek, sliced thinly
250g mushrooms, thickly sliced
2 tbsps plain flour
150ml vegetable stock
125ml low-fat milk
120g frozen peas
2 tbsps chopped fresh chives
1 tbsp mustard
3 slices wholemeal bread
cooking oil spray

1. Preheat oven to 200C.
2. Heat oil in large saucepan; cook garlic and leek, stirring until leek softens. Add mushrooms; cook; stirring, about 5 minutes or until mushrooms are tender.
3. Add flour; cook, stirring, 1 minute. Gradually stir in milk and stock; cook, stirring, until mixture boils and thickens slightly. Stir in peas, chives, and mustard; cook 2 minutes or until peas are tender.
4. Place mixture into Pyrex dish, top with chopped pieces of bread, spray bread lightly with oil. Cook, uncovered, about 10 minutes or until bread is browned lightly.
