Swiss Chard Torta

Swiss Chard Torta

Serves 6 to 8
Whether served hot or at room temperature, this torta is sure to impress. When thawing the puff pastry, make sure that it doesn't get too warm. To work with it easily, you want it to be pliable, but still a bit cold.

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Add swiss chard and blanch for 3 to 4 minutes, or until tender. Drain and run under cold water to cool. Squeeze out as much excess water as possible, then transfer chard to a large bowl. Mix in onions, potato and cheeses. Add oregano, salt and pepper, then add eggs and stir until combined. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 400°F.

On a lightly floured workspace, unfold puff pastry and cut in half. Roll one half into a 9-inch circle, sprinkling it lightly with flour to avoid sticking. Transfer circle of dough to a nonstick baking sheet and pile swiss chard mixture in the center, gently spreading it out and leaving a 1/2-inch border of pastry around the entire circle. Roll out the remaining puff pastry into a 10-inch circle and gently place on top. Smooth out and tuck the overlapping pastry completely under the bottom circle. With a sharp knife, poke a few holes on top. Lightly brush with olive oil and bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden. Cut into wedges.
