Tip

Sometime i use a saucepan to saute the onion and herbs then add rinsed chopped silver beet and chard with out any extra liquid, cover with lid and allow to steam itself Takes 5-7 min. (check regularly that it doesnt burn) But i find steaming in varoma keeps colour better.

Serve hot with salad, or cold as a snack lunch or in lunchbox.

    I made this with just three layers of puff pastry, and it was nice - grew huge in the oven but deflated when it came out. Next time I won't bother with the middle layer of pastry as that was really soggy, but the pie filling wa delicious. I used mint and dill, which tasted good. Thanks for this recipe!

    Made this exactly as stated - it was nice enough But perhaps a wee bit bland for my liking. I might try the suggestions other have given.  Served with a salad.

  • Loved it. I put in 2 extra

    Loved it. I put in 2 extra eggs, used fetta cheese instead of the other cheeses, used heaps of herbs including dill which goes really well with this dish, I didnt use stock, I used 4 cloves of garlic and might use 5 next time (I am a garlic fiend), I put in 4 shallots and 1 brown onion. I also just used one sheet of puffed pastry which was layered over the top. Yum!
