Number of persons

1 kg of chard

Olive oil


50 g Parmesan cheese
For the dough:

250 g white flour

Oil and warm water

Preparation: 30 min
Cooking time: 15 min
Step 1
Wash the chard chop leaves the day before so that they are completely dry. Place the whole leaves between two kitchen towels to dry.
Step 2
The next day, chop them up roughly.
Step Three
Make a very soft but not sticky dough: put the flour in a dish, salt it, dig a well and pour a little oil and warm water. Mix and knead it all together. Add more water if necessary.
Stage 4
Spread the dough very thinly (like a sheet of paper) and put half of it in a lightly greased rectangular tart pan.
Step 5
Put the chopped chard ribs on the dough, drizzle with a little olive oil and Parmesan cheese and cover with the rest of the finely stretched dough.
Step 6
Sprinkle with a little oil and spread with a brush.
Step 7
Bake the pie 15-20 min in the oven at 180°-200°C (gas mark 6-7). The dough should be barely browned.
Step 8
Remove from the oven and let cool.
Step 9
Cut into small portions of 5 x 5 cm or into rhombuses of the same size. Place on a serving dish and enjoy as an aperitif.
Author's note
It is a very popular appetizer in Emilia-Romagna at aperitif time. Bring napkins because it is eaten with the hands... and it is a little oily.

I add my grain of salt
