Silverbeet by the armful

Don't forget my WOOL giveaway!  Open to all blog followers - just leave a comment on the giveaway post so I know you'd like to be included in the draw.

I decided last night there was definitely enough silverbeet for a pie.  We always refer to it as Spinach and Feta pie, but actually Silverbeet is the main ingredient around our place.
We always plant plenty of it, and it always does well.  As you can see, we definitely subscribe to the messy, overgrown style of veggie garden, but hey, it works!
Plenty of lovely fresh greens. 
I enjoy making this, and the end result - but not all the washing up that goes with it! 

My method is just the recipe found on filo pastry packet, maybe adapted a little over the years as I've been making it.  I forgot to take any making or baking photos, but this is the end result.
If I'm very strict and crack the whip a few times at the boys (!) we can sometimes stretch it out to last 2 nights (remember there are only three of us).  Lots of other veggies - usually some baked pumpkin and steam broccoli go well with it.

cheers for now

I'm impressed with your thriving vegie patch, Wendy!Silverbeet is a favourite vegetable of ours too. Is that pie/slice spanokopita? Love that blue willow plate in the photo; I have the cream jug and sugar bowl from that set.

Hi Wendy,
Your pie looks so delicious. I'm going to keep this in mind for a future dinner at our house.
Thank you so much for leaving all your lovely comments on my blog while I have been travelling in Europe. I've really enjoyed those comments and made me feel like the time I spent blogging was worth the effort. I have one more post to do on our last few days in Paris and then something resembling normal blogging will resume. :)
Have a fab weekend.
