Collard Green and Feta Cheese Pie
Method

For the dough:

  • Beat the flour, vinegar, salt, sugar and water for 1-2 minutes in a mixer, until you get an elastic dough. Add a little more water or flour, if needed.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured working surface. Cut into 6 pieces. Shape each piece into a ball.
  • Brush a baking pan with some olive oi. Place balls of dough in baking pan. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

For the filling:

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Wash and dry the greens. Cut them into 5 cm pieces.
  • Finely chop the fresh onions, dill and mint.
  • Combine the greens, fresh onions, dill, mint, lemon zest, lemon juice and salt in a bowl.
  • Transfer to a strainer and let them strain. Press down on them with your hands to release most of the liquid.
  • When ready, transfer back to bowl. Crumble some feta over them. Add pepper, olive oil and semolina. Toss.
  • Check the seasoning and set aside.
  • Brush a round 28 cm baking pan with olive oil.
  • Roll out the first ball of dough on a lightly floured working surface into a thin sheet. Transfer to the baking pan. (The first ball of dough should be rolled out larger than the baking pan, since you will cover the pie with it at the end.)
  • Spread 1/5 of the filling over the first sheet of dough in the baking pan. Drizzle with some olive oil.
  • Roll out the rest of the pieces of dough, making them as large as the pan.
  • Repeat the same process, adding the rest of the filling (4/5 – dough – filling –dough – filling). Before placing the 6th and final sheet of dough to the pan, fold over the 1st sheet of dough, which is hanging over the edge.
  • Cover pie with the 6th sheet of dough, making small folds in it.
  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds and spray with some olive oil.
  • Bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven. Allow to cool before cutting into pieces and serving.
