From Garden To Plate: Leafy Greens

I’ve spoken recently about the abundance of greens in my garden at the moment {here}.  So, when I came across this recipe for ‘Wild Weed Pie’ in Stephanie Alexander’s Kitchen Garden Companion, I was excited to find a recipe that used 1kg of greens – that is A LOT of leaves.  I’d forgotten how light and crispy filo pastry is and was glad for the change from the heavier puff pastry which I would usually use for a pie.  The delicate flavour of the pasty allowed for a more earthy, honest pie with a substantially green filling.  Next time, I’ll substitute another head of silver beet in lieu of the fairly bitter chicory which overpowered the overall flavour a touch more than I would have liked.
