Usually we make Spanakopita or Spinach Pie, but chard is an incredibly easy substitute for this incredibly delicious recipe.  Uses your dill as well:

  • 3 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 large onions
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 pounds chard
  • 1/2 cup parsley
  • 1/2 cup dill
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 lb feta cheese
  • 4 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 lb ricotta
  • 1/2 cup butter (or 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup olive oil)
  • 1 lb phyllo
  1. De-stem and chop chard.
  2. Saute onions in olive oil. Add chard, garlic, and herbs.  Cook for 5-10 minutes until chard is wilted.
  3. In large mixing bowl combine nutmeg, eggs, and cheeses.  Add chard mixture once cooled and mix thoroughly.
  4. Melt butter, if using olive oil mix that in with melted butter.  Lightly brush pan with some of the butter.
  5. Put about 10 sheets of phyllo on the bottom of the pan, brushing each layer with the butter.  Put in the cheese/chard mixture and then put another 10 sheets of phyllo on top.
  6. Bake in a preheated 350 oven.  Bake for a half hour to 45 minutes, until phyllo is just browned.
