Eatwell Farmhouse Kitchen
2 bunches of Greens
2 large Eatwell Farm Eggs
1 Onion, chopped
A little oil to sauté the Onion
1 cup crumbled Feta Cheese
1 tsp Eatwell Farm Rosemary Salt
1/2 tsp Sumac - or some Lemon Zest
1/4 tsp freshly grated Nutmeg
Pepper to taste preference
Phyllo Sheets, I used the organic whole wheat from Fillo Factory
Melted Butter for the Phyllo
I like to leave the greens in their bunch, rubber band or twist band in place; it makes cooking really easy. I boil a big pot of salted water, then turn off the heat once it comes to a boil. Dunk the bunch into the pot leaving the top of the stems out of the water can to use like a handle. Swirl around a bit to make sure the water gets through to the center. Once the greens are tender remove to a colander to let drain and cool. While the greens are cooling, heat a little oil in a skillet and sauté the onion until glassy. When the greens are cool enough to handle ring out as much water as possible, it is easier to do this with a kitchen towel. Chop right up to the band, discard the stems and make sure the leaves are chopped fairly small. In a large bowl beat the eggs, then add the feta, cooked onion, salt, pepper, nutmeg, and sumac, mix well. Add the greens, mix well. Preheat oven to 375 F.
For the assembly: Phyllo dough is really delicate and can dry out quickly, so get your space set up before you pull it out. Find a nice flat surface to lay out the stack and another space to lay out a sheet where you can brush on the melted butter, and then of course you need the space for the baking dish. Follow the instructions on the package for thawing and working with the phyllo. Butter the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish. The sheets are 13 x 18, so I placed them into the baking sheet pretty much dead center. I also tried offsetting each sheet alternating sides, both worked. Do whichever you prefer. With melted butter and pastry brush ready, brush a little butter on the bottom of the baking dish. Set one sheet on your work area and brush with a little melted butter, place in the dish, Repeat with another 5 sheets. Put filling in the dish and spread out evenly, then fold the sheets over the top, one at a time, brushing the top of each sheet with melted butter. You can pre-score before baking. Bake in preheated oven for about 45 minutes. Serve warm.
