Ingredients for Swiss chard Feta Börek (for 4 persons):
500 g of chard
1 bunch of spring onions
100 ml of cream
500 g feta cheese
150 g cheddar cheese
16 leaves of filo pastry (about 350 g)
50 g butter
1 BIO Lime
3 tbsp olive oil
2 stalks of oregano
1 pinch of chili
salt and pepper
Preparation of the chard Feta Börek with cheddar and lime:
Wash chard, drain and cut into strips about 1 cm wide. Wash the oregano, drain and pluck the leaves from the stems. Wash lime with hot water, peel zest from the skin and squeeze out the juice. Crumble fat cheese roughly with fingers, cut cheddar into small cubes. Whisk eggs and stir well. Melt butter in a small saucepan.
Lay the baking tray with baking paper and preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
In the meantime, sauté chard in a sufficiently large pan in the olive oil for 5 minutes over medium heat, add spring onions, lime zest and the oregano leaves, deglaze with the cream and bring to a boil once more. Remove the pan from the heat and let the chard cool.
Feta and Gedda mix under the chilled chard. Stir in 2-3 tablespoons of lime juice. Add eggs and season with salt, pepper and chili.
Spread the filo pastry leaves and add an elongated strip of mangold cheese filling in the middle. Carefully fold in the partial leaves at the ends of the filling and then fold the dough together as for a calzone. From the opposite side fold the dough again as if to a package so that it is closed on all sides. Brush with melted butter and bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for about 10 minutes until the dough becomes nice and crispy and golden brown. Serve immediately.
